Serendipity

Finding things that you maybe didn’t even know you were looking for, in places that you didn’t expect. At a time, perhaps that you didn’t expect them.

I’m very tired today. I have another cold – blame the very hot nights we had on the weekend, I think I caught a chill. I have worked my be-hind off at work the past 3 days and was so very happy to have today to do exactly NOTHING. I have to work the next 5 days straight, so I needed to get my head all straightened out. I do love my job, most of the time, but it’s very mundane and doesn’t really inspire me much.

So here I sit, tissues, coffee and Salt and Vinegar chips to hand. We won’t even talk about that strange craving at the moment. I was trying to think of what sort of movie I wanted to curl up and vegetate to…. but in the meantime I was doing what I do best. Wasting time. Blog-hopping in fact. I have NOT got the foggiest idea how I got here, but here I got. And stayed. I’ll pick up my jaw later. Suddenly I am just consumed with desire, jealousy, frustration. The overwhelming urge to create. Combined with the knowledge that whatever I created, would never be like this. Seriously, I can’t paint. I have trouble just putting gesso on a box. But this, it’s something else. Something I didn’t know was missing from my life, but now, something that I don’t know how I’ll live without.

Go have a look for yourself.
