Daily Prompt: Forlorn

I’ve been feeling rather forlorn lately, and haven’t been out with my camera out for ages. The last time I deliberately took my camera with me, I forced myself to try to take photographs, make myself focus on creating interesting images, and I ended up failing badly, frustrated and in tears. So please do excuse the recent lack of enthusiastic new pics on Image & Word, I seem to have temporarily lost my photo-mojo. Mind you now I think about it, I haven’t written any poetry for the longest time, either. So please excuse the lack of poetry, too. All I seem to have in me just now is whatever drivel I come up with for each day’s Daily Prompt – but it feels better than simply disappearing and not blogging any more, so here I am with today’s half-hearted effort!

Thanks to all of you for sticking by me until my mood and motivation picks up, I truly do appreciate it πŸ™‚

      I’m sure it will – and in the meantime I’ll just keep plugging away! πŸ™‚

    I agree. There seem to be a lot of ppl funky right now, but the sun will shine again and you will get your photomojo and your poetry mojo back…keep your chin up. It’s going to be okay.

    Post holiday blues….pre holiday blahs….use whatever you need, the prompt of the day, photos of your own garbage can, just don’t give up. Life is a beautiful place. Take care.

      That’s a good idea, actually – just photographing boring everyday stuff might help lift my mood – thank you! πŸ™‚

    Raises hand slowly, “Funkish person here, too!” It’s the dark of the weather, and everything else. Sometimes, all I have in me to post is a favorite song. πŸ™‚

      Maybe it is just the time of year as much as anything… πŸ™‚

        It seems almost mandatory, perhaps so we’ll do an inner inventory and be ready to change enough to get into Spring a more whole and happy self.

    Ruth, you matter to so many of us. Maybe it’s the winter, or the news events. But this too shall pass! Take a dumb photo and just call it that. I’d probably like it!
