Nothing

“I love talking about nothing. It is the only thing I know anything about.” – Oscar Wilde

A picture of nothing.

Today is about nothing. Nothing is all I can think of. My mind is blank. Nothing is there.

I’ve looked around and found there’s a lot of nothing going on. There’s nothing but trouble, nothing but the truth, nothing but perfection, nothing special, nothing much, nothing at all, nothing left, nothing is certain, nothing in excess, nothing is impossible, nothing to offer, nothing to say, nothing to buy, nothing to eat, nothing in the mail, nothing to do, and good for nothing.

As Mark Twain said, “Apparently there is nothing that cannot happen today.”

I have nothing to offer you. So under the circumstances, I am going to do nothing but read about nothing.

One Comment on “Nothing”


  1. LOVE the Wilde quote! That word “nothing” is starting to look weird after seeing it so much. Oh….don’t forget: nothing to wear.
