Sometimes the day job is mind-numbing

Just saying, tomorrow, can I have a day where nothing interrupts the interruptions that interrupted my interruptions?

Having worked, done errands, eventually had dinner, and read some (but sadly not all) of my flist I'm starting to feel focused again, and relaxed enough to think I could possibly do some real writing.

Just in time to head to bed.

*sigh*

Over here: http://haikujaguar.livejournal.com/812871.html there's a discussion of alternate ways to compensate artists and writers for their effort and skill. Stop by and share your thoughts!

Or take off your coat and stay a while.  Have some chocolate.  Tell me what you've been up to.  Share your favorite mental aperitif.  And bring a friend!  Even when I'm tired and frazzled, I'm glad when you visit.

It's been pretty weird around here, between the YD starting college and my work taking a sudden jog sideways from research to development. But I'm surviving, and relatively cheerful. Mostly.

Waves back from my own sleepy corner.

I've been both distracted and uninspired lately, so I'm thinking of going to an art museum to get some new ideas. I do have something new to post to therebirthofme, but I hoped to be in a constant state of making stuff.

You can no more create constantly without filling your well of experience than you could, well, excrete constantly without eating.

Don't feel bad about that! Your art is informed by living, seeing, doing, being. Go out and seek some wonderful adventures. An art museum sounds great, but don't discount the value of other experiences. Have some fun.

And then paint it!

Disruptions.
I have such days as well. It's reassuring to see I'm not the only one. Thanks and hope this one is better.
