    Post to get to thinking about

    Dear teachers

    Am I right with the following interpretation?

    I got to thinking about what we can learn from him.

    The underlined part could be replaced with the following:

    I was thinking...
    I happened to think...

    Thank you

    No. It means 'I began thinking/to think...'
