How To Kill Creativity

Another start of another week in which I don't want to do anything. Let's see; why would that be? Is it the fact that although it's October 9th, the temperature outside is 85 degrees? Or— in a related news headline; "EPA to Repeal Landmark Obama Climate Rule"? Or maybe it's the recent statement by the president that we are in "the calm before the storm." What?

I thought maybe I could pull out of my funk if I worked on this little painting, but I can't focus on the sky, and am just making a big mess. I brought the line of the hill up on the right side— it is called, "Homes on the Hill," after all. But I'm stopping before I ruin it.

All this is despite the fact that we had a nice time yesterday meeting friends and having rather delicious pub food. But today I am trying to stick to my diet, and I wonder why. What difference does it make if I gain an extra pound?
