Details Of, Various.

Feeling a little drained lately, void of inspiration.

Do we all ebb and flow like this?

In the interim of my blank brain, let us focus on the little things in life.



Hoboken, New Jersey


Goa, India


Seattle, Washington


Hong Kong


San Francisco, California


Olkhon Island, Russia


Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia


Ely, England


Keflavik, Iceland


Aalborg, Denmark


Madrid, Spain


Doha, Qatar


The Valley, Anguilla


Clearwater Lake, Canada


Where is your creativity at these days? How do you cope with the lulls?

  1. Ah the ebbs and flows of life πŸ˜‰

    It looks as though you have a nice selection of pictures to bring back some wonderful travel memories. I love the kitten picture.

    The question is though did you buy and wear those orange shorts?????

    • Colleen

      That kitten was so tiny and scared. Took a long time to get her to come out and play like that.
      And no to buying those shorts, but I saw the picture and I thought.. “well, let’s appreciate the little things in life!”

  2. The feeling is familiar πŸ™‚ Some day, I feel I could write for hours and hours, I have inspiration, and some days I feel completely empty.

    • Colleen

      Totally, it’s like all day or nothing. Damn creative brain. So dysfunctional.

  3. Ha, the sign from Pike Place Market in Seattle! πŸ™‚ What was the upper deck ticket/token to in Hong Kong? You’ve been in San Francisco?!?!?! My GAWD you’ve circled me entirely geographically here in Reno, Colleen! πŸ™‚

    • Colleen

      That token was for a ferry. We went to see the free light show from Kowloon.
      Hehe, I realise I have indeed circled you. What can I say, I like traveling in the US!

  4. I blame the weather (mostly overcast days) for my lack of creativity, along with the wind no longer in our travel sails. Ewan and I could clearly count and remember how many times we did laundry on the road, and yet since we’ve been back we can’t remember what we did two days ago! I’m sure it is all part of the adjustment back to life in North America, but dang can I not wait for summer and/or my next trip!

    • Colleen

      Oddly, I am much more creative when it is rainy and cloudy. I love moody weather. And I know exactly what you mean about being home and not remembering things from 2 days ago – I think it’s because it’s just a lot more commonplace and familiar, easy to forget. Everything on the road is a lot more jolting! I travel for a month and it feels like I’ve lived for a year (so packed full!). A year at home goes by in a flash.

  5. I distract myself by buying Christmas gifts. I’m not sure what I’ll do in January… buy a UV lamp? πŸ™‚

  6. Totally relate! Maybe it’s because I’ll finally be experiencing winter for the first time in 3 years. Not sure how I’ll make it though– might just have to hibernate until spring ;D

    • Colleen

      Oh, it’s hard to jump from one extreme in weather to another. I can relate! Hibernation is always a good idea. haha

  7. I certainly understand the ebbs and flows of creativity, and of life. It always comes back around, though. Beautiful travel photos!
