Try saying out loud, “Thoughts, ramblings, ideas.”
Now say, “Ramblings and thoughts and ideas.”
Did you notice how much more smoothly the second one flows? “Ramblings and thoughts and ideas.” A nice triple meter. Could write a waltz to that.
“Ideas and thoughts and ramblings” also flows nicely, though a bit more squarely because this one is in a duple meter, march-like.
Which is why I chose “Thoughts, ramblings, ideas” – though I wasn’t aware of it at first. “Thoughts, ramblings, ideas” does not flow. It makes you pause slightly before “ramblings”. My thoughts don’t flow nicely. They arrive, twirl around, come to a screeching halt, stutter, linger, insist, vanish, and reappear.
I love language.
