If you're like me you are wondering where the days have gone. Wasn't it just New Year's Day or even the Summer Solstice?

At the same time, I'm almost ready to give up the heat and hunker down with a good book or finish or start that book/story that's been bugging me to write it. 

If you're even a bit like me you procrastinate. Well, I like to consider it reflective or research procrastination. In other words, 'creative procrastination' :) 

There's YouTube:

Restored Washington DC canal

The History of Cats - Part 2

There are the books:

"A Journal of the Birmingham Emigrating Company" by Leander V. Loomis 1850

"Around Monarch Pass" Duane Vandenbusche 

And of course, the quotes:

"Be careful who you give your midnights to" r.h. Sin

"I cheat my boys every chance I get. I want to make 'em sharp." William Avery Rockefeller

"Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else. Margaret Mead

And of course, I can't leave this post without some music:

2 Cellos - Thunderstruck

Yuve Yuve Yu

Colorado Sky - Flying W Wranglers

And yes, each and every part of this post fills my creative cup. Hope it can fill yours also.

How do you creatively procrastinate?

Here's to creativity!



  1. Inspiring post, Angela/Doris! I find music and films great aids for creative procrastination!

    1. Glad it was useful. I do it when I want to not feel to guilty. LOL. Doris

  2. That was fun! My procrastination usually comes in the form of me wondering about some trivial historical detail for my writing, and then disappearing down the rabbit hole for the rest of the day.

    1. I can relate with the rabbit hole. I try to have some of these available so I can pull myself back to the 'present'. Grin. Doris

  3. What a fun post! And I love your photos. Sorry I didn;t see it sooner.
