I actually find grey days rather productive. Not today. My mind was completely elsewhere. It was dark at 4:30 pm and I was so restless. I walked to Harvard Square and wandered aimlessly. And found that I didn't actually want to be anywhere.

The chaotic aisles of used books at my favorite bookstore offered no satisfaction, the busker playing "Wild Horses" near the T-station didn't help my mood, and I had no desire for a coffee. I didn't know what I wanted.

I'm just feeling impossible in the studio. The fragments and glimmers are not developing. Or not yet. I feel as if this uncertainty has become perpetual.

I HATE those kinds of days. When you don't know what you want or where you want to be, but you're not content with where you are right now. Ugh, so frustrating.
