Inspiration to share from my beloved cousin. I wanted to introduce you all to a great inspiration in my life. I love your writing, dear sir! It’s like looking through my own window.
The color black has been maligned all through history, but I’ve been using one of the benefits of the arguably-ominous color for years. Most nights, when I close my eyes to attempt sleep, I’m deluged with a flood of images, pictures, scenes, and mental videos brought about by the thought of today’s events and tomorrow’s coming trials, and the accompanying problem-solving that my brain performs whether awake or asleep. Like many people, I think in pictures but it is extremely difficult to go to sleep with the chaos of racing picture-thoughts overstimulating my mind. The back of my eyelids should be a calm, restful, black, and not a screen for an action-adventure movie. So I devised a “device” by which I could stop thinking and turn off the projector. I began to visualize a blackboard which I could erase with a standard black eraser.
