I haven't been particularly inspired to do any music or art lately – November has been a busy month with work, and the two trips to cities named “New…” – and now the extremely cold weather here isn't helping. Neither is the news, both out there in the world or recent tragedies closer to home. I'm not one of those people who finds inspiration for music from pain and sorrow, so hopefully things pick up…
One bright spot today is Luna's birthday. We marked the official occasion this morning with some gifts and treats, and will probably have some more fun on the weekend (and I'll post some photos).
So what to do when feeling cold and blue and uninspired? Buy a new computer.
It's one of the new Mac Books, the black one of course. That means that I will probably be selling my trusty little iBook soon. If anyone reading this has interest before I list it, please feel free to contact me.
In the department of unloading money, there also the charitable and public organizations I support that could probably use some help.
This is also an opportunity to reflect on what's important and/or precious to me – Luna of course, my music, my home, artistic and intellectual pursuits, family and friends, the causes I support…how bad or not bad are things really right now?
