I truly have writers block. Many times I have opened the new post box to sit and stare at a blank page. My mind is just not doing it lately and I'm not sure why. Sometimes I think it's the addiction to Facebook and Farmville and television that keeps my mind occupied and not letting the whatever fire to create words and thoughts. It could also be the days and days of endless cold and dreary days that are depressing me. I hate, HATE, HATE this time of year. The trees are stark dead sticks that look like a nuclear war or something. There is not green or yellow or fresh, only dead, dark and brown. I am so ready for the winter to be over and yet they are predicting another winter storm here at the end of the week. Here we go again! I'm in need of laughter, friends and sunshine, warm sunshine. Maybe we ought to go south for the winter. I would not be opposed to that at all. Love the beach, especially Destin. I'm also feeling a bit lonely. We of course celebrated the anniversary and worked at Daddy's the past weekend so no cabin and cabin friends.
It's very hard to generate friendships, life-long friendships that can endure and I don't mean the casual friends that I have a plethora of. I love all my friends and cherish them but I don't feel that I have one that would just die for me, would drop everything they are doing to be there for me. I'm sure I'm wrong but that is how I'm feeling right now and I'm sure it is fueled by the winter depression. I'm sorry for being a Negative-Nellie today. Wait, sun is now streaming through my window. Think I'll sit in it for a bit and get some of the good stuff.
On a side note. I've been playing around a little with paint again and quickly dashed this off from a very old photo I've had for 30 years or so. I love it.
