I can't turn off my brain

The challenge I'm finding is not that I can't figure out what to write or how to say it, it's how to get my brain to shut off. Now that I've started this process, I find that trying to stop thinking about what I want to say is nearly impossible.
The other day as I was driving to meet my sister at the mall, I saw an ambulance. And I cried. I see ambulances all the time and do not cry, but something different happened this time. Maybe its that I'm writing and therefore remembering more or thinking about what happened more (and it did involve an ambulance, which by the way, is not a comfortable way to ride). Who knows. All I know is that on this particular day it struck a cord. And all of a sudden my brain just took off writing. And none of it made it onto a computer or paper.
I'm sure it will come back to me when I'm ready to write about it for real, but this is what I mean. I can't shut off my brain. I have yet to decide if this is a good thing or a bad thing. :)
