The first few weeks of 2013 have been one of the most frustratingly unproductive time periods of my life (to date) all because I can’t seem to get over this flu bug. It’s been all over the news this past week that the current flu virus is the worst in years (or maybe ever). I definitely agree.

The best cure for it is drinking plenty of fluids and rest, but I’ve grown tired of resting, and think longingly of all the projects I haven’t had the energy or focus to get working on. I’m frustrated with this situation, but there isn’t really anything I can do, except take care of myself.

Until I return to normal levels of productivity, here are a few things I’ve found inspiring:

Stained glass windows made from laser cut paper by Eric Standley
Eric-Standley-Paper-Art-8

Paper Tesselations by Kota Hiratsuka
Hexagon Tessellation

An article called, “Playing Video Games on Hard“, which is more an approach to life than it is about video games.

I could always use more inspiration, so if there’s something blowing your mind at the moment, please share.

Rachel, I’m with you on this one. I’ve had the flu-gunk since Dec. 20th and still am not back to my old self. Low energy. Hacking cough. sinus headaches … it’s very frustrating, and I’m going nuts in the house. But I’m getting a little better every day. I wish you well — hope you feel much much better soon.

Maureen, I hope you feel better soon. I’ve been sick off and in for about the same amount of time. The worst part is the low energy when there’s so much I want to do.
