Unimaginative







Consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative. – Oscar Wilde

This quote made me laugh, it seemed to suit my frame of mind this week, hugely unimaginative, but productive. That's a good thing, right? I'm already looking forward to Sunday when I have nothing on my plate, no event to attend, no more books to make. Whee! I'll be posting a Self Portrait tomorrow *fingers crossed* Stay tuned!

What a great quote! It doesn't really ring true with me right now but I will keep it in mind for when I do lapse back into my dreary monotonous clock work. Which probably will be very soon.

Oh, that library makes me oh so jealous. I wish I was unimaginative and productive, instead of being both unimaginative and unproductive right now!

paula said...

Karen said...

Haha -- I love that quote! I think we all have our moments where that applies :)

Productive is good! :) So is consistency. :)

Can't wait to see the self portrait! What fun!!

and, by the way, have you ever lived/ been close to ann arbor? It's a possibility for the boy's grad school... and I know nothing about it!! :P

Oh my gosh, that living room / library wall is amazing. I am so jealous, I want to live in that room.

Have been feeling a little the same this week -- a little drained of imagination and inspiration . . . things are simply too busy these days -- really looking forward to the holidays! :)

I am looking forward to tomorrows self portrait. I love that you do that! Have a GREAT day.

dojski said...

Wow, at least you're still productive. Sometimes, when I'm imaginative, I'm also unproductive. Hehe.

Oh yes - I know those days! Glad to hear you had a wonderful holiday and now getting lots done!

Laura B said...

I know exactly what you mean, I go through phases when ideas and inspiration are flowing, and other times I am dry and am best to just cut and stick, cut and stick!

wunderbug said...

Callie Grayson said...
