Summer Doldrums?

Heat. Humidity. Long days. Short nights. It’s summer here in the river valley.

I’ll be the first to say: Summer is not my favorite season. It’s too hot for me. Too bright. The humidity is awful when you live in a river valley. I much prefer the cooler months. If it’s above 70 degrees, I’m uncomfortable. And now I seem to be stuck in the doldrums.

I’m having problems blogging. I don’t seem to be passionate about much of anything right now. Not photos, not music, not even books. It’s taking me far too long to finish a book. Nothing seems to interest me. I guess the only thing to do is to work through it somehow. So I’ll keep reading. I’ll keep posting here. Get out and take some new photos. Start learning how my music composition software works. Maybe try something new.

Here’s a photo I took in late August 2007 that sums up how I feel right now. It was taken at New Harmony, Indiana. It’s a fascinating place, with lots of history. Maybe I should head back there sometime. Get some inspiration from those old Rappites and Robert Owen’s later community.
