Out with the old and in with the new. A new year always makes me feel like spring cleaning. It's a perfect opportunity to pitch out the bad or blah, make changes, add in some more good, etc. So while I don't do New Year's Resolutions I do see a new year as a good spot in time to make some changes or set some goals and such.
I feel like I've been stuck in a rut and I'm hoping I can jump on out of it now that the holidays are over. I think I've just been too caught up in all the things going on over the last few weeks to really be inspired. I have plenty of thoughts flutter through my head daily that I intend to get written down but instead they flit about like a flurry of birds and I cannot seem to cage one.
I haven't taken many photos lately. I'm just uninspired, hope to get out of that funk soon. I'm not depressed, I wouldn't even call it the blahs, I'm just not filled with tingly excitement, or maybe I am and it's just temporarily frozen and unfeelable (ok, I might have made that word up, but you get it, no?). This Saturday we'll be up in St Germain photographing the Polar Plunge for Angel on My Shoulder and I'm hoping to regain my trigger finger.
You might think that today my photos and my words really have nothing to do with each other. But in a way they do, because on the days I took those photos I was feeling the tingle of inspiration, and the sun was shining and my finger did not tremble with the fear of getting frostbite.
