Thoughts and Ideas

I wish i had some way to dump my thoughts out of my head in some tangible form. There are so many things in there that i can't get out because i don't have the right skill set. Images are the area where i have the biggest problem of course, because i have no talent as an artist.

Even when i know how to encode the ideas, transcripting them takes so long, i can't seem to get them out fast enough. At a quick guestimate i've had floating around in the past few months; two story ideas, one video game idea, two web page ideas, one corporation idea, and one RPG game system idea.

I get frustrated with the methods of i have of recording the ideas, and so never get much done with it, and even if i took the time to work on any of them i don't really have the talent to do much with them. If i had the talent and focus to carry through on any one of those areas then i would probably be moderatly wealthy and feel like i'd done something worthwhile with my life.

Instead i just have these ideas jostling around doing nothing but distracting me from what few things i could (perhaps) be doing well.

So i'm talking with akiko about LotR and Middle Earth, about which she is more well versed than i.

She said that the realm of Valinor, where the elves sail off to when they get "old" used to be part of the rest of Middle Earth. Apparently that's also where the Valar, who are effectively gods, live.

Middle Earth used to be falt back then, but some humans tried to sail to Valinor (stupid humans!) so the Valar decided to seperate the realms. The Valar changed the world into a ball, but left a straight path to Valinor that only the elves could use.

So you've got this round ball world with a straight path leading off to Valinor. Middle Earth is a cherry!! =)

Which makes me wonder, do the Valar have contests seeing who can tie the Middle Earth in a knot using just their tongue? =)
