It pours! And we are currently being happily saturated after too too much drought. It's been ages since I've felt this perfect state of in-the-house coziness. It's absolute reading on the couch weather.
There has been much working and adventuring of late. Not a lot of creative work, and the slump has made me feel, well... slumpy. I've experienced ebbs and flows in my creative energy before, but this one has felt so drawn out. I haven't the inclination or energy to make anything new. I'm tired to death of matchboxes, and can't stand to look through my dwindled cache of materials one more time. I've also been beset upon by...Insomnia (dun-dun-dunnnn). I've always been a great sleeper so it's disconcerting when I have trouble. I've had several nights in the last couple of weeks that end up with me in the bath with a book at 1am. The results are irritability, *extreme drama over undramatic events* (what to do when I spill water down the front of myself? Why, weep of course), and afternoons of zoned out, stingy eyed staring into the middle distance. Nap? No! If I nap then I might push myself further into the sleepless spiral and never, ever recover!(see: drama*)
In order to assuage my creative block anxiety, Nik and I took a couple of day trips this week. We walked out to Bird Island..
Huzzah, huzzah, huzzzzzzzzzzz.
