Things that have helped me cross that river of blue funkiness.
1} A fantastic orange-yellow sunset cresting over the trees/mountain/town/city while driving home from work. There is something very magical about a beautiful sunset that touches you...right...there.
2} This cute post from my good blogger friend Jannie.
3} This funny post from my good blogger friend Joe.
4} A close friend of mine adding a new member (teenager) to her ever expanding family. May she always be blessed with a heart of gold and always has that little child in her pop out every once in a while to show the world that life indeed can be fun and carefree.
5} Writing a short story with a theme (mild cannibalism) that I wouldn't even had thought possible six months ago. Yes, sometimes putting aside one's current writing project to try something completely off the wall, can help jumpstart the creative juices again. Many thanks to Charles for the genre idea.
6} My Winnie-the-Pooh calendar, which uses the classic Pooh drawings and scenes from all the books. January's scene was where Pooh gets stuck entering Rabbit's home.
7} Two drawings of colorful flowers that my daughter made for me.
8} Realizing that I can bring a smile to a co-worker's face, simply by uttering a malapropism and having it remembered weeks/months later.
9} Realizing that I still have the gift of wittiness, when I can make a young lady smile and blush at the same time.
10} My stuffed animals that reside in my cube: Roger Rabbit, Taz, a teddy, an Easter bunny and a cuddly dog.
