Funny how your brain makes random associations and pops up unexpected thoughts without warning....

Reading this I suddenly realized I haven't spent time pondering possibilities in ages.

A few years ago I was given a pile of "weird and unusual" type books - written by guys like Zecharia Sitchin, David Icke (who is SERIOUSLY smoking something) and others who delve into the mystical, the unknown, the slightly oddball.

Why was I given these? Well a rather learned man and I used to spend ages discussing things like ley lines and conspiracy theories, ancient mysteries and alternative truths. We delved in to beliefs about ghosts, shadow people, the paranormal, cryptozoology, secret societies and energy fields. I loved our chats, they stretched my mind into "what if" and gave me a lot of ponder-fodder. That gentleman was a wealth of knowledge, fascinating to listen to and learn from.

When he retired and they moved to a smaller place, I was given that section of his library - the things other folk would have turned their nose up at as heresy, too strange, even "devil-stuff". But I operate on an open mind, always willing to consider different angles to things that some take as solid fact or dismiss as nonsense.

And it struck me today that I haven't done that in a very long time. I haven't allowed my headspace to wander off into the mysterious for ages.

I've missed doing that. I think it's time to go trawl my "Weird Stuff" bookmarks folder again! :-)
