Last of the Mohicans

There are days where I absolutely feel like the last of the Mohicans. Luckily though not like the survivors/protagonists in the movie of said title! As we speak I’m busy looking around for another gig, one that doesn’t require this absurd early rising for one, but also one that can offer a bit more of … Continue reading

Feeling the blues

As I find myself literally counting down the months, weeks and to a lesser extent the days, the more incumbent it becomes for me to get out of the office as soon as possible. I can handle being cooped up behind a desk and sitting in front of a computer screen for an X amount … Continue reading

Down the drain

Being back behind a desk just re-affirms those things I need. The fact at the end of the day I’m just exhausted and don’t want to do anything, is always a telltale sign for me. All of my energy has been sucked dry and the battery desperately needs recharging. In that regard I’m very much … Continue reading

In retrospect

It’s always interesting to see some obvious patterns emerging when one actually pays attention. I’ve been metaphorically speaking so busy with pushing back the direction I was expected/supposed to take I’ve been at a standstill. The pushing back and trying not to lose any ground has lead me to a place of inertia, and I … Continue reading

Upon closer inspection

While I’ve been going about with my creative challenge this year, I often find myself simply making things. Usually well enough et al, but in some I definitely sense something is lacking. That something I can’t really put my finger on, but enough for me to notice and not be content with it. I guess … Continue reading

Unspoken words

After another lecture from my mother some weeks ago, I did get to say some of the things that had always bothered me. How she’s always so focused on the negative, and do nothing but complain about all the things I’m not doing or haven’t done. Why would I want to engage in that discussion? … Continue reading

No comment

October in a nutshell for me. I don’t know about you, but for one reason or another I simply can’t make myself to find the right words or the need to write them down. Plenty of thoughts and frustrations going around, don’t get me wrong on that, they still manage to linger about. Is it … Continue reading

God only knows…

Don’t worry, I’m not going all religious on you, that’s not me. It’s merely a BBC Music promo using the Beach Boys’ old hit. I just really like the art direction, because I’m shallow. 😉

Hanging on

Hanging on

I honestly wish I’ve managed to vanquish that stubborn thought of not being good enough by now. Alas as of yet it has shown to be a tough opponent to beat as it still very much lingers in the back of my mind. And I  have no doubt it will haunt my mind for many … Continue reading

Resolutions wk30 pt. 1

This week I was mixing a large batch of paint as preparation for my paintings. As a general rule I don’t paint the sides of my canvases, however as I don’t think most will be framed, the sides do need something to cover all the random streaks. Since I don’t like to continue the painting, … Continue reading

Resolutions wk 28 pt. 1

Whoops, it seems I’ve kind of forgotten to post some of my resolutions! Not that I haven’t made them, but I guess sometimes other things got in the way of me actually posting them.Trying to find some of the more concrete answers to the many questions that still manage to hang about. Well, a few … Continue reading
