The Chicken or the Egg?


Words in my head are written from my heart.  Do you believe me?  What came first, the chicken or the egg?

Letters of A-B-C and beyond are pushed down ever-so-slightly on computer keys.  Simultaneously, magic appears on a flat screen of stark white.  Oblong and lit from within.  It’s bright, trimmed in silver with a tiny camera of perfect round embedded in the top middle.  Often, I cover it with a yellow sticky note.  Just to be safe.

I’m totally convinced that my heart sends words up, up, up toward my brain.  Often my feelings are nearly tangible, as though I can reach inside to touch them far before the brain begins to wonder if or when they’re coming….

Perhaps my mind discovers topics or arranges words into proper sentences before they stare back at me from the bright light of white.  Yes, it checks spelling and grammar and whispers in my ear if something doesn’t sound quite right when read aloud.

Still, it is my heart that engulfs all emotion before the mind drafts a single word upon a paper page.

  1. And that’s a recipe! What commentary, Kim! But I would tell you, egg came first. Because (special theory of curiosity) egg has less mass and requires less force exerted to move, and thus attains greater velocity. Comes first. Poor fat chicken. Seriously.

  2. Mind is a thinking word, the heart is a feeling word; and you are saying you feel before you think. If so, that’s the way it should be, Kim, as it is not good to think anything that is not sustainable in your feeling… I am saying this because it feels good…

    • Ahhh, you always make me pause for a simple second before silently smiling. Yes, you too, most definitely are a “feeling” person, although a great thinker as well! So wise and well read, you are, Raj. One could speak to you on any subject imaginable. Thank you for being here. All my best to you and your family there in beautiful India.

    • Thank you, Dear Olga. Yes, no choice in my mind, at least this is what my heart ‘tells’ me. Lol, regarding your computer camera. Not sure where I read this tidbit of info, but it can’t hurt. Rip that sticky note off your desk pad! 🙂
