This beats my finger-tapping …

It’s raining here this morning for about the fifth time in two months so I really can’t complain. In fact, it’s very refreshing.

My problem is this. The always inspiring view I normally lock into when I’m at my trusty Mac writing is completely covered in cloud. As I was sitting here, chin in hand, fingers tapping aimlessly, awaiting some sort of profound or even just kind of … hopefully … um, interesting thought to break through my momentary block, I remembered this clip a friend sent me a while ago.

Time for a break. I poured  myself a big glass of Orangina and watched the video three times. Click here to watch it and prepare to smile. How do they do that? And not laugh? I sure couldn’t, could you?

But then I had a thought … and I’m ready to get back to my writing. Maybe it was the Orangina.

What works for you when you need to take a short break from whatever you are doing?

  1. Blimey! My knuckles hurt vicariously! When I need some serious recharge / inspiration, I go to a gallery and wander around with my headphones in. I have a specific set of albums I listen to, and somehow the experience always relaxes and re-energises my brain. Possibly not as fun as tap-dancing with my hands, though…

    1. LOL – I even wondered if it was computer enhanced the first time I saw it. It looks like you have found a great combination for inspiration with art and music. Fun is all relative! Write on! (And thanks for commenting.)

It's always good to hear to from you!
