i paint i write

Live boldly, laugh and make art

I have nothing to say today

The word nothing is on page 986 in the dictionary

The word nothing is on page 986 in The Random House Dictionary of the English Language; The Unabridged edition. The dictionary was published in New York by Random House in 1967. Jess Stein was the Editor in Chief and Laurence Urdang was the Managing Editor.

The word nothing comes after the word noteworthy, and before the word nothingness, which means the state of being nothing.

Today I am in the state of nothing. I am nothingness; I have nothing to say. I am not noteworthy. My words are not worthy of attention.

There are no words in my head today.

I have no words to write. I can not see past the dishes on the kitchen counter. I can not see past the mess in the basement. Today I want to sit in the bathtub all day. I want to sit and not think. I want to close my eyes and sleep.

I want to float.

I don’t want to think about the dishes. I don’t want to think about the mess in the basement. I don’t want to think about writing.

I have no words today.

I have nothing to say.

    Interesting posting. I am a fortunate one to have many friends but found your information interesting. I live by the words: Treat others as you would like to be treated. Think about it. If you are a pleasant individual, you will exude an air of positive. If your sad, angry, rude, obnoxious, uncaring, and/or selfish – other pick up on that. Who would want to be your friend? Nobody. Happy people want to be with happy people. period.

    • Yes, so true. Happy people want to be with happy people. Thank you for stopping my. 🙂

  • I can so relate to your post. I feel that way so often when I go to write. Either nothing going nowhere…or everything going everywhere. Your nothing says something, indeed.

      Thank you Maya for your comment. I thought I was alone floating silently in my tub. Yes, nothing going nowhere, or everything going everywhere.
