The Windmills of My Mind

IMG_2441

I was sitting in the tall grass not far from the old windmill, watching the large, louvered sails moving in a slow circle around the windmill’s tower. It was almost mesmerizing. Then my eyes moved to the clouds overhead, traveling slowly in their journey from west to east, changing shapes as they moved across the sky.

And I wondered if it was the blades of the windmill that caused the breeze that propelled the clouds in the sky or if it was the breeze that propelled the sails of the windmill to unceasingly rotate.

I must have fallen asleep before my tired mind could conjure up an answer.

    It was your mind that caused the motion. (SUSPENSE MUSIC)

        The new comments are shown on top. Thank God the madness stops in Reader view.. But on a browser I can’t understand the conversation at all..

          And that is precisely the reason for having comments show in chronological order (oldest on top) — to make it easier to follow/understand the conversations.

    Lying there in deep thought and you didn’t even conjure up cloud shapes in form of animals and such? I see a lobster.

      I did, but when I saw one that looked like Mickey Mouse, I decided to skip that part of the story. I think that might have been when the acid kicked in.
