Early morning episode of creative vision...

I have this thing for flavor-blasted goldfish crackers. I'm a junkie. They're sooooo good. Anyway, they come in this carton that says, among other slogans in hyperactive fonts, "Blows other snacks away!"

While staggering around looking for coffee, I saw this slogan out of the corner of my eye, except that I thought it said simply "Blows other snacks."

The mental image was brief and searing. That's all I'll say.

Vague and restless today. I have the urge to be painting but not to actually start a painting. I know this mood pretty well--anything I start will suck wombats, because I have no idea what I want to do, I have no vision, the Muse is on vacation, I'm just sort've creatively restless. Likewise, I've no desire to work on anything currently in progress, because I'll wind up getting disatisfied and wrecking the thing by attempting to overhaul a mostly-done piece and redo it all in neon pink or something. It's not quite artist's block--it generally only lasts an evening, or at most, two or three days--but it's annoying. Things that I work on in this mood are inevitably frustrating and consigned to the circular file.
