I am in a funk.
These things happen. I wake up sick, and energy may not return for days. I've had a nastier-than-normal head cold, plus my neck has been painful. What energy I've had has gone into home projects, keeping Ross occasionally entertained during his summer vacation, and keeping up with the usual chores.
I've managed to use the camera, and I've gotten a few nice shots. But that's been the extent of my creative output for too long.
I don't want this to sound like I'm complaining, but to be honest, I know that I am.
I'm disappointed, I'm frustrated, I'm half-crazy sometimes. I've done a little embroidery, and I've sewed one seam -- in desperation to do something. I'd thought of a theme for a blog entry, but the photos I took for it were very ho-hum, so I dumped them. Thank God that dragonflies aren't ho-hum.
Fortunately, I get to get out of town and (I hope) get out of my head a little. Our family is leaving on Friday for a week's vacation, off to New Hampshire and Massachusetts, to visit family and to see the sights. It's high time that we go play tourist in Boston, and maybe in Portland. I do love New England. I can see myself shaking out the cobwebs there.
I am thankful that we get to travel this summer. I need to fly away for a while.
