Oil reflects the light

Toronto, ON, November 2007

It's been a dim couple of days, so I find myself looking in corners for little snippets of color and light that might lift my mood. I'm thankful that I have my words and images, because they often seem to bring comfort when life tries to do the opposite.

It's remarkably soothing when you can withdraw to your personal archives for a few minutes and reflect on the thinking that went into something as simple as a photo or a few paragraphs.

I wish more people could seek refuge in what they've created.

Your turn: Suggestions for feeling better. Please discuss.

One more thing: Caption This rages on. If you're still mulling over yours for this week, mull no more. Click here instead and join the fray.

Metallica, baby! The louder (and more alone you can be), the better.

I know this isn't a "caption this" but...

"I like my women like my oil... extra virgin." ;)

Cool image, Carmi. I always enjoy your work.

Thanks so much for your well-wish to me and my girl, I appreciate that, man.

I've been feeling similarly, Carmi. I keep feeling like posting complaints and nothing but complaints. I should follow your example and post a pretty picture instead.

Cooking always makes me feel better...mmm cooking...

For me what makes me feel better? Spending time with family, friends or just sometimes my dog :)

Sometimes...journaling does it as well. I like having places where I can write my thoughts and feel clearer.

Felt more alive today than I have done for a little while ...

The difference ? Our work's IT got upgraded and I had a new toy to play with :-) (Plus I did the usual bit of being able to answer other people's questions when they got stuck with the differences)

New Toys = Happy Geek :-)
Can get expensive though ;-)
