Still Here and Uninspired

I can't seem to get myself to do anything that involves deep thought lately. It's the hot as hell dog days of summer, I have no garden, no herbs and very little green in my life to inspire me. Every day is just another day to fill out job applications, clean house and take care of my mother. So, all I've been doing online lately is watching Radiohead videos (which are pretty deep but also blessedly easy to get lost in) on YouTube and playing trivia games. And, thanks to Panthea's Create a Goddess I killed another 5 minutes making this cute little goddess. I wish I had something original to share, some deep thoughts to impart. But I don't. When I'm feeling this uninspired it's all I can do to put one foot in front of the other.

I just thought I'd drop a line to let my two readers know that I haven't totally abandoned this blog. I'm just waiting for my life to improve and fearing that it won't.

You know this hits everyone sooner or later. I think those people who have the ability to write a post everyday- have a writing fairy tucked away somewhere- or barring that an inspiration fairy on payroll. Be patient it will come when it is needed.

I hope. I've felt things slipping away from me, writing wise, for a couple of months now. And it's just slipping further and further away. I hope it slips back soon.

Grab your camera and create some more of those beautiful pictures.
None of my business, really, but thought it may help.

Livia Indica said...

Thanks Goatman, it does help.

We all go through this stage. I simply plan to go somewhere, anywhere and take pictures. Those pictures may inspire the words you want or need to say.

Get out and grab some shots, try to take something you have never taken before.

We are all eagerly waiting!

oh i know the feeling~and i have just moved so feeling really unsettled! i have not forgot about the tattoo pic but having moved things are crazy!

Livia Indica said...

Thanks Mike, you're right. I just need to get out and do something.

Solsticedreamer, I was wondering, but I understand about moving. That is bigtime stress. Looking forward to seeing your ink.

I know how you feel! Unemployed in summer is miserable; it makes me feel like a high-schooler again (not something I ever wanted to go back to). I'm getting through it with a lot of sleep on the logic that that will make me feel better once things start to move again...and someday, they will. I hope it's someday soon for you, too. <3

Hey! I too dug your little Goddess pic. Also, at our monthly gathering of the 'partytheism' wiccans and pagans of New Paltz, I met someone who has some nice tats, which made me think of you. I just emailed her telling her about your ink blog.

Sorry you are down right now, will send some good intentions your way.

Livia Indica said...

Janavira, yeah I know the time will come when things will be better. I'm just impatient and sick of waiting!

Thanks Gene!
