Don't we all marinate on certain things?
Ideas, decisions, dialogues, stories, relationships...
Inside of each of us there is an egg timer just waiting to ding, so that we can come to a conclusion, experience that ah-ha moment.
Add to that concept the next reality - which of us is only thinking through one thing at a time?
We have a myriad of items "on the back burner," staying warm as it were, so that it is ready to serve at the precise moment we need it. Oh, it is like a matrix of egg timers in a corner of our minds.
(Excuse me, I need to evaluate what has been on my mind and is now ready to implement on some level in my life.)
