On Momentary Life Lulls

I am feeling bereft of excitement or interest in my life at the moment.

This happens. We all reach lulls in our lives.

I’m not feeling particularly creative at the moment. I have no great political insights or opinions to share. I’ve read some comic books recently, but I can’t be arsed to write about them.

As I said, this happens. I blame the sinus headache or the sneezes or the general dreariness that was Baltimore today.

But something of interest did happen today.

I started living in 2010. The Year We Make Contact.

Well, maybe not that last part.

I started writing copy for the January catalog today.

Secret word! Secret word!

Well, not today. 😉

After watching 2001: A Who Odyssey for the fifteenth or sixteenth time today, after making a joke about 2010: The Year We Make Contact, I now feel like rereading 2010: Odyssey Two and 2061: Odyssey Three.

So maybe life isn’t as unexciting as I thought!

  1. I am disgusted that the word “lulls” translated to “LULZ” in my head before I actually realized you were using a proper English word. Sigh.

    Hang in there, Allyn.


  2. Wes, have you ever known me to use “LULZ” in any way, shape, or form? 😆

    I’m fine. Just a little tired. And a little lost creatively at the moment. Like I said, it’ll pass. It always does. 🙂
