I have no title today

I have been somewhat uninspired to write.  It happens now and then. I have some good thoughts that rattle around and then they are gone.  I got up my usual time this morning at 4:45am even though it's Saturday.  I laid there for a while as thoughts crept in and out of my head: FROM: Did it stop raining? TO: Oh my God, I should check the sump pump. FROM: Why did I eat that pizza last night? TO: I should…

Spur of the moment….
