Rome Respite

I’m feeling uninspired. So many photos and recipes in queue, so little to say about them. I desperately need an escape from the doldrums of everyday life: a vacation, a thrill, or at least a great work of fiction.

I feel like I’m biding my time in my current situation, bobbing along on a sea between youth and maturity. Memories near and far grab me by the hair and pull me under, flooding me with the warmth of intimate moments past. The future is a mirage, and I am drifting upward and downward, forward and backward.

Enough. Let’s wander the streets of Rome as I did four springs ago, wide eyed and curious. Embrace the warm Mediterranean breeze and golden sunshine. Whiffs of wisteria grace our noses as we meander down stone-walled side streets. Mopeds buzz by, and we duck into a cool gelateria on our Roman respite.

    I feel the same way! I’m lacking motivation and inspiration entirely at the moment. And until I find some, I’m not going to post. It’s a standoff, officially!

    lovely pictures by the way…

    I miss Rome. And Florence. But mostly Istanbul. You can always come to Tulsa, and we’ll have another adventure. Find some buildings to sneak to the top of, crawl in some holes, spin in some circles. There’s a big blue whale that I can show you. It’s famous.

    Your writing and photos are beautiful and inspiring, even if you aren’t feeling inspired. Here’s hoping the blues get chased away.

    you write beautifully and that’s exactly how i am feeling of late as well, except for me its a bit of france and austra (might be the re-occurrence of quarter life crisis again!).

    Nice photos of Rome, I have plans to visit this place early next year if all goes well. There’s so much history there, I hope I can only capture a bit of that and somehow translate that into digital.

    I know the feeling about being uninspired, that’s exactly how I feel right now. I would love to have so many photos in queue like you, but sadly I need to make more edits and I just can’t find it in me to do it right now. Then there’s also that part where I have to write to each photo and create some form of a story interesting enough for people to read :P..

    Cheers, I hope you’re out of your rut..
