Earlier this week I posted about creativity and my lack thereof. I was writing disjointed blog posts, taking random not so great snapshots with my cell phone and making ordinary meals that lacked any kind of a creative spark what so ever. I did the only thing I know how to do when all else fails, put my head down and work my way out of the funk.
I just kept doing what I do in hopes of righting the ship. Eventually disjointed thoughts became whole ideas and I was able to string together a sentence or two without sounding completely incoherent. I was able to eek out a few posts. Not my best work I suppose, but not even the greatest writers in the world wrote classics every time they put pen to paper!
Things returned to normalcy in the kitchen as well. I made a pretty good butternut squash soup over the weekend. All from memory. There was quite a string of uninspired meals here at home for about a week. Tonight is chicken quesadilla night. One of my favorite meals to prepare at home!
To get my spark back for photography I decided to go back and edit some of the extra shots from this summer. It helped to get my mind back in the right direction. I finally composed a decent shot last night on my cell phone and with a little in phone editing it actually turned out pretty decent!
The only thing I am not liking right now is this cough that I have seemed to develop. Too many long nights at the arena playing and reffing hockey have caught up to me and it has me feeling a bit under the weather. Hopefully it doesn’t turn into anything big and kill all of this momentum that I am just starting to build.
One thing is for sure, I’m certainly glad to be back moving in the right direction.
