As of now, I’m taking a break from the image I am working on. It looks like I’m going, once again, for visual impact with lots of color. What can I say? It’s what I’m ‘good’ at. But it’s tricky to manage, and because of the nature of the image, I’m kind of making it up as I go along, and the process is a bit irritating. Furthermore, I’m getting to be rather aggrivated with my cellphone. Not outwardly, of course, but it’s always annoying to have little problems like that nibbling at the back of your head.
But I try to push aside those feelings. After all it is the weekend, and there are much pleasenter things to meditate on. For instance, I watched Thor yesterday- on account of Thor being one of my favorites in The Avengers. Reason being a) he has one of the best lines of the move (‘he’s adopted’) and b) his presence is one of the few things that makes Loki less of a flat villian, their relationship gives Loki more demention. I enjoyed Thor, and thought that Loki was a much better villian in this move than in The Avengers. He had more demention, he was more interesting, he was also less evil. Besides that, the movie overall was funnier than the Avengers, and relied less on explosions and battles to make things interesting.
And yet, as much relish as I get from contemplating character developement, potential for redemption, and inner emotional turmoil, it’s a bit hard to apprecaite that sort of thing when you have a nagging feeling that you ought to be doing some work. Not because you have to. I can come up with plenty of excuses for me to take a break; the fact that it’s what the rest of my family is doing, the fact that it’s the weekend, the fact that I will work better if I take a break every once in a while, and so on. But sometimes you feel like you ought to be working, simply because there is nothing in particular that you want to do- including recreational things.
I’m not sure if I made that quite clear, but no doubt there is someone in the world who understands. I shall take comfort that thought.
