Ok, so I’ve been painting vases A LOT. It allows me to sit down and watch a movie/be lazy AND do something I enjoy. When the movie/show is over, I don’t feel like I’ve wasted my time. And, unlike writing, I can do this creative activity without being fully engaged.
So, again, I painted vases. This time while watching The Holiday. I love this movie. Not for its acting (ahem, what happened Kate Winslet?), not for its plot, but for the little old man character and the consistent reference to “gumption.” That’s what I need…gumption.
