The Melancholy Blah Day

This has been a blah day, not rotten, just blah.

My remedial approach to a rotten day generally consists of
  • wishing the sun goes down quicker
  • quickly wash the dishes and turn out the kitchen light
  • examine consciences in a prolonged shower 
  • the prolonged shower sometimes doubles as launchpad for solutions to all life's problems
  • declare to self that the day is officially over and renewal is at hand
And it has, just now, a split-second ago, continuing as I'm typing, occurred to me that a prolonged shower may be a solution to a blah day as well. 

Melancholia by Albrecht Durer, one of my favorites among that genius' works. Durer would not have approved of my use of it as a quasi illustration of a mood called "blah." The piece is generally thought to represent melancholy induced by creative blocks. Take that as a hint, blah, blah, blah.

    Agreed - I love Durer also, and this engraving is a marvel indeed.
