Cure for Pouting

048, originally uploaded by coffeejitters.

I've been out of sorts all day. I'm not quite sure why.

On any other day, I'm annoyed to no end by other people telling me they are bored. I've got no patience for that; I usually have half a dozen things I didn't get done because I ran out of time.

But today... Today I was bored all day long. I could not get my brain to engage in anything.

So, instead of beating my head against the keyboard trying to write something decent, I went for a walk in the rain. Now I'm going to sip mexican hot chocolate and slip into bed. There's nothing so important it can't wait till tomorrow.

How do you handle days when you can't seem to engage?

those kinds of days drive me absolutely nuts. what's even more disturbing is when i'm so bored out of my mind that i can't even concentrate enough to sit down and paint. sometimes it brings me to tears.

btw i love your photography and it makes me miss taking my 35mm around with me and taking candids!

I love your photography. Your world has many more colors than my world.

Bored?? What's that?

Oh I hate those days! Just had one on Tuesday. Love that photo though :)

I usually try to read something light, but I often can't concentrate on that either. So I do anything physical...walking my pooches, laundry, even cleaning. I get on mad cleaning streaks when my concentration level is down...some people around here might wish it happened more often ;)

thank you, thank you, thank you, and yeah, I really think some kind of physical activity is the best way to deal with this kind of malaise. Well, that and chocolate.
