I’ve been repeating myself a lot lately.
Yup, just saying the same basic thing, over and over.
I don’t use exactly the same words each time, of course, but the gist of every utterance remains essentially identical.
It’s like my stream of consciousness has gotten trapped in a thought-eddy, and my efforts to swim free only wear me out and leave me wilted — a leaf floating, spinning in an endless circle, round and round.
Really, it’s a little surprising in its predictability, and there have been moments, say, at the hopeful beginning of what seems to be something different, where I think I become aware of some long awaited change of topic, but then just when I’m about to smile with relief, I pounce back once again into my rut, and wind up saying that same damn thing that I know I’ve just said way too many times already…
Yup, been repeating myself a great deal….
