Lately you may have noticed a dearth of posting.
Well, there's a new niece and a bunch of other stuff all just flying everywhere in a not bad way.
Yesterday I had an opportunity to finally force idle my processor.
Lifehacker has an article on creativity blocks. I don't think it has any particularly good advice for me today. Not because my creativity isn't blocked up. But because summoning it through reptitive and otherwise dolorous tedium isn't my baall of wax.
Do you prefer doing nothing? Like tuning into your internal clock? Tuning out everything else. Detaching all other dependencies. Reducing to only lowest level hum. Eliminating the abstractions.
I like to settle in for a whole lot of nothing (movie marathon) and attend to arising desires to do things if they arise. It doesn't really matter what. Sweep the floors, do one dish in the sink. Whatever. I had a subconscious habit of enforcing this habit months back but it fell out of habit for me. You can't push them, like most things. Maybe you won't do anything; this too shall pass and so on.
Yesterday I swung into that mode of operation. Just relaxed and then watched. Anyway, I got a modicum of things done around the house (probably looked like I got a lot less done), but was energized today at work.
