The status is quo

It has been pretty dull in this corner of the universe these last couple of weeks. Since the last cannon blast of the 1812 Overture echoed away, it's been a regular cycle of sleep, work, and eat, with occasional trips to the gym. I have managed to get to the gym twice a week, Tuesdays and Thursdays, regularly for a few weeks, and that makes me feel good. The significant cold spell we had from late January through February has lifted and most of the snow has melted.

Last week marked the first anniversary of my mother's passing. I contemplated some sort of post here but couldn't really pull anything together. Arguably, seeing the DSO play the 1812 was kind of the big thing in that regard for me. On last Friday, I alternated between goofy utterances and staring off into space for long moments. I've been OK other than that.

I've been lax in photography lately, so I ran out for a short trip on Saturday and managed to snag a photo of Sweetest Heart of Mary Catholic Church in Detroit as the sunlight got really nice and warm:
Sweetest Heart of Mary
That's was about all I managed with the camera before the sun went behind a huge bank of clouds. Such is life.

I'm trying to come up with something exciting this weekend. Maybe some retail therapy, I dunno. A coworker thinks I should get a new tattoo, which doesn't seem like the thing one should just jump into. I have long had ideas for another one, but not the pressing need to do it. I've long had all kinds of ideas in general. They've just kind of sat there, needing some sort of motivation to happen. I'll report back if something does happen.

Lovely light in that photo.

I sometime think about adding another tattoo, as well ... but like you, I can't think of anything that's really perfect. Good reason not to make the leap.

Let's see what you have got...

My LiveJournal reveals all:


Now, how about yours?

Excellent tattoo. I like the significance of it, especially.

It pays to be deliberate with tattoos. It took me 36 years to get the first one. I will try to dig up a good photo of it.

Ugh... contemplating tattoos isn't just frustrating, it's been bringing up a bunch of junk for me.

Whenever I get a free weekend, I try to make something. Maybe some making would liven up your day?

That's a bummer about the junk. But the only way to get rid of it involves exposing it to daylight, I guess.

Making things is a great idea. I actually wrote a draft of a story yesterday. It's something I'll probably never share, but at least I got it out of my system so the next thing can come.

The sunlight on the church is wonderful. It has that warm glow of evening sunlight, though it's the wrong time of year. Sunlight on a winter's day has a different feel to it that summer sunlight.

How incredible that a year has passed since your mom died. I can hear you miss her. *big hug*

Thanks, friend.

It was still chilly last weekend, and the cloudbank that came in right after the photo had a wintry feel to it, though we got no snow or anything. It was kind of odd, maybe a bit out of its time.

I like the photo!
