I haven't posted on my blog in a long time. Why? It's not that I have been busy exactly. I haven't. In fact, I've had an exorbitant amount of free time on my hands lately. It's mostly because I feel bland. Colorless. Uninspired.

Don't get me wrong, I have a list of projects that I would love to embark upon a mile long. And the files on my computer are brimming with inspiration. But nothing can get me to start. Have any of you ever had this problem? I can't put my finger on it.

Remember the scene from the Wizard of Oz where Dorothy opens her door to Oz for the first time? I always loved that the movie was in black and white before this scene and then it instantly becomes spectacular color.

That's the best way I can describe the feeling I have. All the world around me is in spectacular color with inspiration practically banging down my door. Yet here I sit... in black and white. The color surrounds me, but I can't find a way to draw it in and make it mine.

So I continue walking around a black and white figure in a world of color.

Well this post was very inspired! I love that image. I'm thinking maybe you need some recoup time after having such a crazy college schedule. You'll bounce back! Just enjoy the quiet. :)
