Do you have a spot, a special place where you find that you do your best thinking? I find that there are places I inhabit with some frequency that are not conducive to reflective thinking, and others that, for whatever reason, allow a freer exercise of cognitive activity.
For instance, the idea for this post came while I was outside on the riding lawnmower, cutting away at the spring grass.
I do a lot of thinking on that mower, perhaps because it takes me a couple hours to complete the task.
I have other places, too. My most productive thinking comes sitting at my desk with a keyboard under my fingertips, for this is where my thoughts become words on a page. However, my deeper thinking, where my mind fills with a mix of words, images, and senses, takes place on the deck. The deck offers me a distraction-free solitude where I can listen, discern, and decide. This is where I do my best thinking.
What about you? Do you have a spot?
