Living on the Thinking Equator Zone of Thoughts & Ideas

Hadn't you heard?

I'm living in the Equatorial Regions of Thinking.

The Thinking Equator, where the terms are at their broadest, allowing room in which new ideas may take root and more fully bloom.

It's not exactly perfect, but it's perhaps the best that I can do.

It is so dense and thick with rich, green tendrils, that it is an amazingly lively place in which to try and stay.

The polar ice caps are frigid, limited in scope, and do oppose one another in more ways than one. There, the landscape's stark, semi barren, and ice cold. The dark months there drag on for so long, one can hardly wait to see first light as the late spring sun begins to hang about at the horizon.

It's also harder to fish for answers there as well as new ideas.

The Thinking Equator's warm, full of life, and nearly every color of the rainbow resides there in its branches or among its flowers.

It's nice to be warmed by the possibility that we might see the flash of a colorful pair of wings between the trees, or find an iridescent insect crawling beside us in the undergrowth.

Animals may chatter and call overhead, or even grouse at each other, yet the Thinking Equator

still remains a place to try for something new. For me, it is a fine place, being full of lively, multicolored differences of opinion or thinking.

Whenever I find myself in a scene wherein ideas are being handled only in view of polarity, I tend to retreat back to the warmth of the more lively Thinking Equator.

Though I do enjoy a spot of cold weather, and even enjoy watching programs about the poles, as far as thinking goes, call me non-polarizing, and you'll maybe get my drift a little bit more than before.

The polar ice caps are certainly drab by comparison, and cold as well.

The polar bear may look all creamy white, yet has dark skin underneath all of that white fur. Still, it's a pretty dull looking critter next to our friends above.

Both seals and sea lions are generally brown and also flecked with darker spots. All brownish and far from vivid of hue. But then, that's their environment. Very few penguins do sport much color themselves, either.

I like the depth, the complexity, the mysteriousness, the profundity, and the vividness of much that comes out of the Thinking Equator.

Polarized thinking and arguing bore me.

Once people tend to quit trying to hoist me into their own ideas as to what I'm really looking to do here, we generally tend to have a pretty good time together.

I'm warm, being neither icy cold nor lava hot.

Kind of nice, really.

I will even try and meet you halfway if we are visiting different places with our travels of thinking.

I will concede anyone's valuable point as long as it is not merely opinionated, but gets backed up with facts I can find out still further things about.


if you hanker after useless polarization, you can count me out.

I'll stay in the tropical, nourishing warmth of my own Thinking Equator, thank you very much, where the animal life is full of variety and the birds sing thousands of different songs.

Also, the fishing for new ideas is much, much simpler without all that ice to deal with.

I'm not heading for either of those opposing polar ice caps of thinking if it can at all be helped.

No way.

I am sticking with that Thinking Equator's warmth, growth, and liveliness.

I hope you'll join me here.

It's actually exciting and really quite interesting.

Peace to you.

I really thought this was such an original idea.  I have never thought about comparing states of mind to geographic regions - perfect!  And the illustrations totally transported me - added bonus!

Some people in the comments seem like they want to see a double meaning here but why ?

Theodora: Thanks!

it's that polarization which hurts our world in ways both subtle and overt.

Peace to you and the pets, dear heart

Alysa: Thank you for stopping by and rating.

I liked making this little post. So as for why others would not get what I wanted, I've no idea.

They'd think of the negative rather than seeing the positive benefits I've mentioned. Ah, well. I just look at a waterfall and smile.
