The past week at the day job has been, well... let's just say that the week was fired by somewhere around, oh, Tuesday. Just stupidly busy and stressful, on top of the usual fact that injury recovery is exhausting. My neck is getting better, but it's also taking bi-weekly trips to the chiropractor and time spent with the glory that is the electro-stim thing that's been helping the muscle to release so my spine can try and curve again, and it's just taking a lot out of me.
Needless to say, the creative thoughts and ideas just don't happen when the only thing I want to do is sit and stare vacantly out the window.
Well now, that won't do, now will it?
So, I did the best I could... I let myself have the first half of the day to sit and stare and do absolutely nothing. When the boredom finally set in, I talked the boy into taking a field trip to Barnes & Noble, figuring I could at least go stare at pretty pictures and other people's interesting thoughts and ideas, if I had nothing of my own.
Glad I did! I found an interesting book, called Image Art Workshop, which is already giving me some fantastic ideas for solving some of the problems I've been having with my own work. I may get to them tonight, but since there was also a stop at a package store, there is currently a glass of krupnik on the table next to me making me nice and relaxed and happy.
Tomorrow, though... Oh, tomorrow, there will be work happening. :)
