Uninspired....bored.....a bit BLUE! That is me this week. It is truly a rare occasion that I find myself feeling glum, so when it happens, it is a bit disconcerting for me. I am usually one to find the rainbows in the rain, the flowers in the weeds, and the...the.....the....ummm I have sat here for 5 minutes and can't even come up with another example. Now if that doesn't say "gloom and doom" in the land of Living and Loving, I don't know what does.
As I stumble through the Blogosphere, I see tons of wonderful folks, energized by the New Year, and instead of feeling inspired, I find myself feeling a bit more empty. This is incredibly odd, being that nothing negative has happened recently to set this ball rolling. I had a great Christmas, and I have nothing to "really" to complain about, yet I am glum.
I feel bored with my photography. I do not mean that I have lost interest in taking photos. It is more that I look at my photos and find them ordinary, and well...boring these days. I could hardly find a set of photos I even felt like editing tonight. I look at them all....and feel disconnected, and uninspired. However, when I am actually in the moment (like today at a birthday party), I am feeling cheerful, and happy. It is when I slow down, and have the time to actually do something creative that I am finding myself so very BLAH.
I don't even want to talk about this here blog. It is as dull as it gets these days, and yet I can not find the motivation to be my best. I just seem to throw some photos up (which we already know bores me), and call it good. Blech! I have so many BIG and interesting things I could be writing about, but haven't felt moved to do it lately. Sigh....
Perhaps the world's second worst crime is boredom. The first is being a bore.
