The day after

I'm back at work; after an initial evening, following a 4 day weekend that involved a bunch of retardation and horrification. Not a bad gig, but I'm feeling better that I can resume being in my routine. I never thought it a big deal until I was away from it for an extended break (i.e more than 2days). I think having a solid routine makes me sane.

Saturday afternoon, I recieved a gift from Vinny and Val that was most unexpected. If you look at my link list, there is a listing for Oblique Strategies. It's basically a random thought and suggestion card deck that can help you in a tight creative pinch if you happen to be stuck, creating music, writing, or painting. I assume it would work for a miriad of other things as well. Vinny and Val hooked me up with an actual deck SHIT-YEAH!....

Here are the first three cards I drew last night when I was having an issue with a new piece..."I don't know if they are good or bad, but they're definitely comical if you know me".

"Carry On, Change Nothing and Continue with Immaculate Consistency, Disciplined Self-Indulgence"

Sounds like a recipe for masturbation.

If only it were legal; with the professional medical personel/staff, I'd give punching my nuts off a try. 6 weeks down, 46 to go.
