Lazy Sunday: A patchwork of possibilities. TB or not TB. No question. / 23 September 2014

Day in Life (working title) 2014.

Digital photo assemblage. Day in Life. 2014.

Zoom in to this image and read text description

I have a problem.

I can’t (as in it’s not happening) draw, paint, write or otherwise create. Cook, even.

Much.

These days.

Apart from Tzatzki, which doesn’t involve heat, so strictly speaking isn’t cooking.

Pathetic.

Nor can I read. I finished a book two weeks ago and since then I haven’t managed to start another.

Pathetic.

Yet!

I’m surrounded by stimuli, natural as well as the other kind.

So last Sunday I took photographs of some of the things around me; in my flat; where I live; in my life; here and now.

Next, I did the usual techie stuff e.g. bluetoothing, cropping and editing etc. Then I assembled them, as you do.

And here’s the result.

Follow that.

This is a verse from a song written by a fourteen year old. It somehow seemed apt, given my mood of listless melancholy.

Suicide is Painless

A brave man once requested me
To answer questions that are key
Is it to be or not to be
And I replied 'oh why ask me?'
