As the Sun Slowly Sinks in the West

I didn't have a very productive day.  Jerry and I went out for a pleasant breakfast at El Búcaro (where we saw flamenco back in January).  I washed dishes after lunch, did some laundry, sent some emails, commented on some blog posts, phoned my mother and brother.  I didn't go for my brisk walk.  I didn't exercise.  I didn't stretch.  I didn't give money to any street musicians, or to anyone else on the street.  I didn't draw.  I didn't write.  I still didn't whisk any eggs.  I didn't study Spanish.  I didn't socialize.

So, when I headed back up to the roof a short time ago to retrieve the laundry I had left hanging there to dry, I wasn't very energized.  Until I opened the door to the sunset. I am now inspired to do more tomorrow.

  3. Mitch, I guess your sun is slowing sinking up from the east here. LOL

    I haven't exercised much either...sadly. :)

    There's something magical to me about the idea of the sun sinking up from the east. I like that.

    What I need is an exercise buddy. But, I think you may be too far away to make that work. (Different suns and all.)

  5. Nothing like a spectacular sunrise or sunset to engage the 'inspiration drive'.

    Thanks for sharing those pics. I might get off my arse and do something myself tomorrow :-)

  7. What odd trees you have. Have they all been bent that way by a prevailing wind?

    I prefer our very late, late summer; a very short winter; and a very early spring.

    Those trees appear to be very common here. Always bare and growing only on rooftops. In Spanish the tree is called ANTENA (accent on the second syllable).

    And I didn't even have my camera with me (don't usually take it when I'm doing laundry). These are off my phone.

  15. And I can see why it would, Mitch! Great shots and to think it is always there just for you!!!
    Some days are just here to do nothing at all....which is something when you think of it. Lighten up Jim!

    Lighten up... hmmm. I'm trying. But maybe that's the problem. Maybe I need to stop trying.
