Doing anything over and over becomes mind clearing if not mind numbing. When I ride a bike my mind clears and I think of all sorts of things. I’ve thought up inventions and written papers while riding a bicycle. I also formed ideas or plans that were left on some road not making the trip home. The same is true with archery. Those between ends times walking back and forth to pull arrows are intervals where ideas pop into my head.
Recently, while walking on my 3D range my grandkids popped into my thoughts. All are under the age of 10. I began thinking about the common denominators among them. This is what I came up with:
- They are at full speed or eating,
- Conflict is a reflex,
- They’re not having fun until someone is bleeding.
If you have young grandkids, perhaps those three common denominators are applicable.
