Urban Dreamscape

I shot this a week ago during my seemingly regular night walks. Twisting the iPhone a bit during the shot gave it an otherworldly effect that I rather liked, especially when processed through ToyCamera, a favorite photography app of mine.

I've spent the better part of the past week shuffling through my life like a zombie. I've been sick with a virus. Fluid in the ears, body aches, and a sore throat in August is a new experience for me. Despite all that, I drove my daughter, Bri'anna, around to her various county fair gigs here in Utah and slept between engagements. Wiped myself out rather well by Friday.

Saturday was a blur.

I can tell I'm getting better because I'm starting to think about time again, and how I'm not utilizing it wisely. That's not something I tend to worry about when I'm ticking or ill. I'm hoping this week will be better than last.

I don't regret the time I spent helping my daughter. I just wish I could have juggled my own todo list items along with all the driving I did. It is rather typical of me, though, to irrationally blame myself for not being productive when ticking or sick on the couch. So I'll stop that.

Here's to productive weeks. Wish me luck. I'll do the same for you.
