Sunday afternoon in my head


Anyone? Anyone? Ferris?

Today is a beautiful Sunday afternoon and I’m sitting in my air-conditioned house trying to think of a topic for today’s blog entry. I can’t. I think I have run out of ideas. The only reason I thought of this title was because last night I saw Risky Business with my sons and I recalled the other Chicago movie that I sometimes watch with my sons: Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Lately, my sons have been asking me about famous paintings. I hope that it’s because I have been a positive influence on them. Anyway, in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Ferris and his friends go to the Chicago Art Institute and look at the painting by Georges Seurat titled “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte.” And in the painting everyone is all dressed up and at the park. I love truth in advertising! However, there isn’t much activity. Everyone seems to have gone to the park to see and be seen. Well, that’s what it looks like in my head right now. I have all these ideas in my head, all dressed up, but they’re not doing anything. Try as I might, I can’t think of anything to write. I’m just sitting here waiting for something to trickle out of my head and flow to my fingertips so that I can type it up. But no such luck!

Now what do I write about?

I write about whatever comes to mind. También enseño español y escribo acerca de los mexicanos y la enseñanza del español.

  1. LOL. As I was siting there, I kept thinking about a creative writing class I took years ago. Toward the end of the semester some students wrote stories about not being able to write a story. I was not one of those students. 🙂
