This is another piece from last summer. Originally written/posted August 2019.

Wake Up And Be Brilliant We all have our morning [or evening] wake-up process(es). Over the past few years, I’ve developed a theory, a wake-up theory. I’ve come to believe that nearly everyone is capable of great things immediately after opening their eyes. Please keep this in mind: I’m being literal, and not referring to those individuals who have chosen to remain within a state of forever [eyes wide closed]. And . . . here it is. From the moment that we climb from bed [couch or whatever], we are fresh, free of distraction, and not yet dumbed down by our world. This is our GENIUS TIME. During this short period of time, we have the opportunity to seize upon the moment, and access areas of profound mental creativity. It’s important to remember that our Period of Genius Time [PGT], doesn’t last very long. Under normal circumstances, right up until the individual has invested five minutes in front of the television, accessing the internet, or in some special cases; conversing with the [sleep forevers], or the [eyes wide shut] sub-culture. I’ll keep it short. Have a great weekend, and please enjoy your brilliance! Joseph Shanklin December 7, 2019

  1. I agree with you. That’s a short period of awakening time and it’s best to use it to write down a few thoughts, maybe a part of dream or anything that comes up to your mind.
    Like the poet Laza Kostić once written…[]


    1. I’ve been doing just that for the past 2 months. I wake up 2-3 times each night. When I do I record my dreams and work on my book.

      I’ll search the link as soon as I get out of this movie. I’m in the theater watch [The Call of The Wild]. The new released version. 😉
