LOOKING FOR INSPIRATION
I was feeling particularly blank today. I am not sure why, but it probably has something to do with the moon or the rain or the numbers at the wrong end of the temperature scale. Perhaps I'm just tired, which isn't wholly out of the realm of probability with me on any given day.

I don't like feeling blank, and I don't WANT to feel blank. I sat here and stared at the screen for several minutes and nothing, but nothing, came to me. I thought earlier about some things to write about, but inspiration has flown off elsewhere and is hopefully lighting a fire under some other lucky writer and not sitting in a dark, smoky bar somewhere, with her head in her hands and a whisky sour in front of her, because there's nothing uglier than a drunken, belligerent inspiration getting all up in your face and demanding to know what you intend to do about it, huh, HUH?

Not that I'd know, having never been drunken and belligerent. At least not ever having been drunken. I'm pretty sure I've been belligerent. In fact, my brother can probably confirm that I was belligerent just recently. Heh.

I have these urges to go and play with art supplies, but they usually occur 10 minutes before the dryer beeps or dinner needs to be started, or while I'm in the shower getting ready for work.

I have these urges to sit down and write a poem or a short story or a journal entry, but they seem to occur while I'm zoning out in the passenger seat, or right before I fall asleep, or while I'm in the shower getting ready for work.

I haven't talked to my mom in weeks, maybe that has something to do with it. She's busy helping my sister pack up her family and house and move to St. Louis. Talking to my mom is very grounding, usually (unless she's just been to one of her psychic seminars*).

Then, I thought, well, duh. Go read your friends page. There's always something going on out there, and someone to talk to, and cheer up, and cheer on, and read about, and maybe you'll find that slacker, inspiration, and remind her it's your turn, dammit. And there she was, and she was TALKING ABOUT ME. (and she was right about my link!! LOL)

Reé, thank you. I'm floored and moved and touched and grateful. :)

muahahahaha!! I added them, too! Just what I need! More blogs on my list! *shakes head at self*

and thank you again. You were my angel today :)

Lizspotting, what a cute name for that post! She is right you know, you always have great links and are the consumate reader and responder as well as
writing your own interesting entries on your thoughts and life in Sweden!

:) thank you for that. I always feel like I never have half the time I'd like to read everyone and comment on everything.

Confirmed.
Actually she is quite often belligerent, I can also confirm that she has never been drunken. (having rarely in her life ever tasted alcohol.)
My straight laced sister. (which confirms the sibling belief that she is adopted.(sorry Kathy, for the adopted comment))

I was also in awe of the post Lizspotting, which confirms my belief that my sister is awesome and inspiring. Thanks Liz, even when you are not talking to me....

(Loving the peace and quiet, hehehehehe)
Coming soon - Lizspotting in Germany, Lizspotting at Neuschwanstein Castle, Lizspotting the sequel!
Maybe Spielberg or Lucas can make something out of this theme, since I cannot.

You are a goob. :P

You could help me guilt him into writing in that journal he started oh so optimistically once upon a time >:P

Wow! Great post about you! I think the same thing. I love reading your recommendations. You're like my little spider in the net.

I was totally floored by it. :) Thank you. I'm glad!!

It's okay. Even your nothing is better than a lot of people's something. Someone needs to make a website with blogging prompts. It would be way better than a meme, but still help us when we run out of things to say.

Oh, I agree! That would be very helpful some days :)

Wow, what a wonderful honour :)
