Lost in Translation

I still would like to try and start what I posted about last week however I am finding it hard to translate what is in the brain down to the fingers and into the computer. It is like there is this big disconnect and what sounds great and thought provoking in my head comes out gibberish on the screen. As I type this it is happening, I have thought about this for sometime but as I pound this out it is becoming garbled and disjointed.

This does not only happen when I post to the blog but I notice it happening in everyday situations and I feel as if it is hurting my social interactions and progress in achiving my goals in life. Sometimes it feels as if the rational and educated part of me is trapped in side and what people see is "JoJo the idiot monkey boy."

It is very frustrating and that is the last thing I need at this point in my life.

Yes, that happens to me quite frequently. I have something funny or something profound that I want to say, but when I get to the keyboard, it goes away. Or as I'm writing it, it isn't coming out as clearly as it is in my head. Very very frustrating!

Are you sure it might not be AAADD? (otherwise translated as Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder, hehehe) It could be a familial trait or it could be lack of R & R. (And may I further the first R as REST!) I prefer to think of it as the later rather than the former, since I don't seem to exhibit the same loss when transcribing thought to print. Another hardyharhar.
