Orange Flames Licking At Green Streaks, 2012 – Light Signatures :: (click to see more)

I find myself struggling today. No idea what to write about except how thick I feel. It’s fatigue. Just want to stare into space and think not. A total zone out would be ideal. Even fill the vacuum between my ears with something inane and unchallenging like a low intellect action flick.

I’m pretty close to zero creative production of late. Here is the latest Light Signatures image that I began working on last week but couldn’t quite get completed in time. Then today – tweaked and chided it to this place and I’m still not entirely happy with it. There’s something unsettling in it that I can’t quite get a handle on enough to resolve. This is one of those times to give up gracefully.

I definitely need more rest. My mind is just circling – cycling – oscillating – endlessly, when I close my eyes. I’m finding it very difficult to concentrate on anything that actually requires decision making or even long periods of thinking. Just decided to take Friday off – I’m desperate.
