Caribbean Holiday by Laura TreveyI have been unable to find a topic I wanted to write about this past week. I may have writer's block. I may just be depressed. I usually have so much I want to write I keep a list so as not to forget my topics. However, that is not the case of late. I post once a week to Empty Next Evolution thanks to Theme Thursday. But that blog is suffering too. This blog, so often a mixture of political POV from the female perspective, is stumping me right now.
I am still reading the book "Game Change" but it's slow going as I come home tired from work and just flake out. The news has been so depressing of late, what with Haiti, the President's many dilemmas, the economy. I find work to be difficult as well. We've had strange weather in the east, heavy snow followed by torrential rain. Doesn't do much for the economy in our ski town. People seem to be walking about in a daze, unsure of tomorrow and worrying, worrying, worrying. Me too.
I need a vacation. I chose this piece of art by Laura Trevey because the title reflects my desire to get away from it all. I'm getting ready to watch the State of the Union. I don't expect to hear anything I don't already know. But I would like to hear that the vision is there and a plan is in place. One constantly has to reinforce one's sense of values. This goes ten fold for the President.
You know, if you look closely at this water color, it has a very stormy appearance. Trees in a strong wind. Perhaps I picked an appropos painting after all.
