Have you ever had a day, or several days strung in a row really, where you can sit, and stare at a blank screen, or blank sheet of paper - you know you have to write, you know you have something to say - and that it'll be profound - to ... someone - yet, you can't?
You know there's something there, something begging to be told - a story, a memory, a moment - and just when you start to write it out, it jets away. Buries itself deep in the recess of your mind, and laughs at you - tormenting you with flashes, and brief recollection. Nasty bugger.
I've had a month like that, well, just about a month. Ever since I said New Month, New Outlook? Yep. Can't think of a single thing worth writing about. Not one thing I think anyone would be interested in. I mean, there are things - memories, stories, silly things - but I can't seem to recall a single one. How does that happen? More so, why does it happen? Especially when I really NEED to write, I NEED to focus my attention on something worthy of it. Gotta love it!
To find inspiration, in an attempt to beat this bloggers block, I have been pouring through my hard drive, external hard drive and photo bucket accounts ... looking at photos, remembering the circumstances surrounding the picture, and then it hits me. I haven't taken my camera with me, in 3 weeks. I don't have my extension. It's at home, plugged in, empty. Void of photos. Not only do I have bloggers block, I have photographers block. I need some quality photo taking time.
Apparently, my new month, new outlook has fallen victim to my SAD funk, and it angers me. Angers me enough - that this evening, I'll be taking a walk, with camera, small one, and possibly the dogs (if it's not too cold - Pixie won't move in certain temperatures) ... and I'm going to snap away. I'm also going to hopefully, continue losing pant sizes. I'd enjoy it immensely if I lost maybe 2 more. Happy I've lost the one, and am greedy to give away more.
I appreciate, faithful readers, that you have stuck by me in my funk time. And I do promise, I shall be back to blogging ... fun ... things in the near future.
For now, I bid you adieu, heh, that word always makes me laugh.
