Rowing out of a Trough

From the quality and frequency of my posts, you can conclude that I’m in the middle of one of those cyclical creative troughs we all go through, when time, energy, initiative, and intellect are sapped down into a whirlpool of idleness and something bordering on, but not quite, ennui. I guess writing about it is the first step to beating it. That, and removing Fox’s daily 2-episode Simpsons from the VCR timer. And turning off the TV.

Speaking of troughs, Capital Weather is predicting one for next week, but no snow. Pity; by this time last year it had started snowing in DC, but it doesn’t look like I’ll be seeing any for December.
