Once again we find ourselves saying hello to Thursday, which is the day of the week where
we pray for Friday to hurry up and arrive, for Pete's sake we share three things, whatever we want, anything at all.
1. Because it's been a month of Sundays since I've been out shooting local scenes, I decided to review photos from the past couple of Novembers. This one, likely taken at Bethel Beach, is from November 2008, my first year of blogging. It isn't the greatest shot by any stretch of the imagination, but there simply has been no time to take any new ones, and I'm desperate.
2. Without fresh photos, I have nothing but stale blog posts since my methodology for creating a post goes something like this:
a) Sit down and stare at the computer screen with absolutely no idea--no plan whatsoever--what the topic will be.
b.) Peruse photos, find one that for whatever reason strikes a chord with me.
c) Write about it for a bit and then wander off into the wilderness that comprises the inner workings of my brain.
d) Never really talk about one particular thing, just flit from one odd topic to another.
e) Conclude by trying to wrap it all together, usually with something completely unrelated to that initial inspirational photograph.
f) Press the "Publish Post" button and wonder a whole lot of things, including where it all came from,
what planet I came from and why anyone would want to read it.
g) Rinse and repeat.
3a. One week from today is Thanksgiving, which means one week from today may as well be Christmas since they've been
shoving that down our throats sneaking it in on us since October. I'm not prepared for either one and just about flew into a conniption today when a coworker said he'd already completed all his Christmas shopping except for the couple of things he still had to pick up for his wife.
3b. Stifling the urge to cause serious bodily harm to this individual, not to mention my career, I suggested he change the subject, since some of us who are hosting Thanksgiving haven't even purchased the first item for that joyous occasion, never mind had the time to consider what is happening over a month from now for Christmas.
So, that's all I have. Angst over lack of fresh photos. A strong desire to get out this weekend and take new ones. Anxiety over Thanksgiving, and dread over Christmas. Depression over the dark, dreary evenings and an ardent desire to move to Bora Bora. The End.
Now it's your turn. Please tell us what's going on in your world, although if you celebrate Christmas and have already done your shopping, I beg you not to tell us. My coronary arteries thank you in advance.
