I heard the other day that by the 17th of January most people have already fallen from keeping any new year resolutions they may have made. I found that somewhat of a dismal outlook even though I do not tend to make resolutions anymore. I do agree that they always seem to be something that one is destined to fail at and well who needs that, especially at the beginning of the year when we all sort of want to just start over.
These past couple weeks though it seems that I have been a bit of a slowed pace, not wanting to do much of anything. I am not really sure for the reason. It could be the cold that crept over me just after Christmas and will not seem to completely go away. Maybe it is the cold weather that for the last few days has made it not very enjoyable to go outdoors. Or maybe it is just a case of the winter blues that is spoken of so often at this time of year.
Being stuck inside I have watched television a bit more than usual and will admit that I am not finding much that is worth watching. I watched the second Twilight movie (New Moon) the other night on HBO and as I was with the first one, was again disappointed. I guess that I am just one of the weird ones. I was told by a friend that Twilight is the greatest love story ever told. I have to say I beg to differ.. No really I think I do more than beg to differ. Where I can see the appeal to a teenage girl who has stars in her eyes in regards to romance and love for that dark stranger that doesn't seem to fit in any piece of normal; I can not see why so many middle aged women are so taken by this .Yes it does involve vampires and where I find them also to be strangely romantic and alluring it is hard for me to call the Twilight series an epic classic of romanticism.
In my idle time I also ventured to the movies to see "Season of the Witch". The previews looked interesting and it had Nicolas Cage in so of course my curiosity was there. Again I was disappointed. Where I will admit that there were a few instances where Cage's blue eyes were quite captivating, the story and acting was lacking to say the least. I felt that they could have elaborated so much more on the story line and made it a bit more interesting.
I keep looking for something to jump start me into some sort of energetic frenzy yet as of yet nothing has sparked. Maybe a bit of a conjure to help spruce up the spirits is needed. Something to awaken that hibernating muse inside and possibly help to inspire me to do something invigorating. I welcome any ideas any of you may have. Suggestions are greatly welcomed and strongly encouraged.
