I'm trying something new. I'm trying to wean myself off the TV habit. Used to be, I'd get up in the morning, make my coffee, turn on the TV and sit. There was nothing worthwhile to see. Nothing intelligent, or edifying, or, for that matter, even entertaining. And, most of the time, it was a rerun of something that I'd sat through before. So, my experiment is to not turn on the TV, but turn on the computer instead. So, now, as I drink my morning coffee, I scroll through blogs. I check the ones that I follow, and then branch off into ones that they follow. There are things that I read that are intelligent, and edifying and entertaining. They are inspirational, and make me want to get up from the couch, and go to work in my studio. Sometimes, I find a new technique to make something easier or more efficient. Sometimes it's a new project that I just have to try. But, it is never the same old rerun of something that means absolutely nothing. So now, I'm off to get an hour's work put into Charlene's quilt before I have to go to work this afternoon.
