Melancholy Mood

Melancholy Mood

My mind and emotions are in the process of recharging.
Keeping a low profile is the best I can do right now.
Enthusiasm and energy have temporarily fallen to the wayside,
and as a result
I'm finding motivation harder to come by.
Daydreams, however, those are plentiful!



“For oft, when on my couch I lie

In vacant or in pensive mood,

They flash upon that inward eye

Which is the bliss of solitude;

And then my heart with pleasure fills,

And dances with the daffodils.”

~William Wordsworth

  3. The shot looks like nature offering a spoonful of sugar.....very sweet indeed.
    That, my friend, was my grandmother's favorite poem. Very fitting for your current mood.

  24. BEAUTIFUL! Love the photo . . . and William always has the nicest turn of phrase.

    I think to some point we all feel like this, at this time of the year. We just need to recharge ourselves for the coming Spring!
