The Oliver quote above made me pause and smile to myself. It is true. I can be absentminded....but only because my head is busy thinking other things. I am always thinking. Thinking while I walk while I plan while I compose while I write while I paint while I water the plants. There is a whole world of thought in there which I haven't yet tired of exploring. Maybe that is just the lot of the introvert. Or the fertile ground of the creative. But in the new social order, I will likely do-se-do instead of grapevine left. Mind yer toes, there.
