Without idea

My regular visitors knows there is a new blog post here every week. Once a week at least, to be precise. But, today is tenth day since my last posting and I still have no idea what to write about. I thought about few topics but none of them seemed interesting enough. Tried few times, but… don`t feel inspired enough to make research and put up interesting facts. On the other hand, I suck at making rhymes, so this way of posting is out of question.
I don`t feel like ranting at all, even though sometimes I think ranting in Serbia is a matter of everyday life. A part of folklore, as we like to say. People rant about everything, from weather to car, about waiting a bus too long, high prices of food in shops, small salaries, coleagues at work, neighbours, parking spaces…. Well, I don`t feel like that but something is…. wrong.
Either this winter lasted too long, or the full moon last few days made me more nervous than I was a week before. It is raining again and that greyness "infected" my way of thinking. I am glad that my friends here in Opera Community are having a lot of ideas and made excellent and amazing posts. Good ๐Ÿ™‚
There was a bright spot, though, last saturday. In one of my trainings we had cutting practice and I tried few things I never did before. And it went pretty good :happy: I would put a video of it here but I don`t want it to be accessible on You Tube. Or somewhere else on the Internet.
So, here I am, waiting for something to happen, to bring some colours around me and make me move. Any inspiration that will make the wind blow, sun shine and water flow. To make puzzles connected.

    My advice is to post about little things and details around you. They may seem unimportant to you but they are interesting for others. At least, they would be interesting for me.

  2. MizzMartinez says:

    I agree totally with Lorenzo! :)The lack of ideas of what to write is very common at times. But as long as we get to know that you are doing fine and working hard I'm fine. So, simple posts which may seem dull to you are interesting to us. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. SittingFox says:

    Well, you may not think that you were able to write a post but you wrote one anyway! ๐Ÿ™‚ I like the "jigsaw". I know that long spells of grey weather can make people feel a bit flat, but the sun will return, in its time :)My posts are more sporadic than they used to be ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I am busy with work, and dependant on the weather and wildlife helping me out when I do have a spare moment. It's getting easier as the days get longer though.

    He gets nervous because he is a werewolf.

    your visits to our posts it is extremely appreciate alone,you give us so much in your comments, from ideas, links and kindness jokes,funny pictures,that it feels like you are micro-posting on a daily basis :heart:

  6. thaodp says:

    Wonder why the full moon made you nervous? I want to see your cutting pracitce, at least, a picture ๐Ÿ™‚ When I was in a training I always admired my "older brothers" when they perfomed cutting posture.

  7. Zaphira says:

    I agree with Angeliki on this one. You comment a lot, so it doesn't feel if you're not posting at all.I saw a big beautiful moon – and it made me smile. :happy:

  8. thaodp says:

    ๐Ÿ˜Ž It sounds attract me ๐Ÿ˜†

  9. Dacotah says:

    Take your time and you will find something you want to post about. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Javaen says:

    :D. I loved it! Sometimes, to those who adore you, like we do, it's just really interesting to see how your mind thinks, processes. What it enjoys, sees, or fears….You never know what others will find interesting, anyway. Some of my self-proclaimed more "brilliant" posts are largely ignored, while. "I can't find my notebook with the good writing one" had people asking daily if I founded it! :P. So, good job! I rather like ramble-y Dare! :PHere! Wanna nookie cookie? ๐Ÿ˜†

  11. PainterWoman says:

    I was going to say the same thing as SittingFox….you wrote one anyway. And I agree about writing of the little things around you. My posts used to be at least every two or three days. It is down to once a week, or even ten days, because of all the projects I'm working on. Gray days definitely have an effect on your thinking process.

  12. wickedlizard says:

    ๐Ÿ˜€ I agree with Angeliki and Zaph! You do get around so don't worry about it! ๐Ÿ˜€

  13. sanshan says:

    My advice…don't post! When you feel like it you'll find something to write about. No need to force the ideas.

  14. ricewood says:

    You did the right thing. I suppose most bloggers know and fear "the empty textbox anxiety". You did the only thing there is to do in that situation – you sat down and wrote. And, behold, a nice and readable entry emerged after all.This will pass. Keep on writing.

  15. rose-marie says:

    I can totally relate to this, Darko! I haven't felt inspired in ages either… Have had a few ideas, but rejected them one after the other. Thank goodness for the other excellent blogs around here that keep going :D.I am sure things will loosen up for you as soon as it gets lighter and warmer, or maybe even tomorrow for all we know :yes:Oh, and what's cutting practice?

  16. gdare says:

    Lorenzo and MizzM – writing about little everyday things sounds like a nice idea; I may try it; maybe just because I never did it :DMit – full moon never makes me nervous; but during full moons people do unusual things; something with tide and ebb in our veins, probably ๐Ÿ˜€ What is this that you practiced? Some Vietnamese martial art?Angeliki – I like that, too; commenting as posting; micro posting as you`ve said :happy:Adele – ahhh, jigsaw is a word I was looking for :doh: Couldn`t remember when I wrote a post ๐Ÿ˜€ What are you working now?Zaph – it was here too, on southe-east, full and yellow, low on a horizon :happy: "There`s a moon over Bourbon street, tonight…" was instantly in my mind :cool:Issy and Carol – thanks girls :DJava – before I answer that… what is nookie cookie? :PPam – it is not only grey days… maybe a longevity of the same pattern, every single day is exactly like the previous one, and exactly like the next one; it feels like waiting for something that will maybe never come :left:Sanshan – I still envy you on that cabin, beach, ocean and mountains there ๐Ÿ˜€ even with a snow :PRose – I am practicing Battodo, a form of Japanese fencing; among other things we are practicing cutting with a live blade; maybe I will put one of movies on line for a short time so you can see it :)Allan – thank you; yes, it was in my mind – to write something, anything; but just to write; luckily, a photo was there, ready and waiting ๐Ÿ˜€

  17. Javaen says:

    ๐Ÿ˜† you know what a nookie cookie is! :P. And I wouldn't let you eat it, I was kidding! I care too much about ya.. :heart:

  18. PainterWoman says:

    The same thing every day means the 'hum drums' or 'doldrums'. Everybody gets them. Change your daily routine if possible. Such as take a different route to work or, if you take walks, and always take the same path, take a different one. You'll see different people and scenery. If you go to restaurants and order the same thing every time, order something you've never tried before. Just simple little things but you might be surprised with the outcome.

  19. thaodp says:

    No,Pam ๐Ÿ˜€ I answer Darko question

    What is this that you practiced?

  20. thaodp says:

    It's Fut Gar – a Buddha's style. I just learnt for some months but like it very much.

  21. gdare says:

    Java – :doh:Pam – unfortunately, there are only two ways I can go to my office and if I choose another, I might be late to work, it is so unpredictable; but you might be right, I will meet different people, at least. In a bus I usually take to go to office, I almost know all the passengers already; I got worried when some of them are missing sometimes :faint:Mit – Fut Gar… I Googled it and in Wikipedia it says Northern Shaolin style of Kung Fu; I didn`t know Kung Fu is popular in Vietnam; how long did you practiced it?

  22. PainterWoman says:

    Do you mean what I just said has a name? Fut Gar?

  23. thaodp says:

    Ah, I got lost – I thought about cutting – a posture of footworks ๐Ÿ˜€

  24. PainterWoman says:

    Oh…:doh: ๐Ÿ˜†

  25. thaodp says:

    Pam, sorry for my confusedness ๐Ÿ˜€ I got a new word "doldrums" – I had tried to find it many times.Darko, many kinds of Chinese martial art are popular in Vietnam. They have many effects. I just practised for about 6 months. My father intended to teach me martial art but he didn't because he worried his "little girl" would be more selfwilled ๐Ÿ˜€ When I was high school I found out there were some classes and convinced my friends to go with me. Then we were too busy to prepare for graduate so we had to stop.

  26. studio41 says:

    enjoyed your little 'rant' there about Serbian ranting ๐Ÿ˜€ and like your cutting, too.

  27. studio41 says:

    do let me know ๐Ÿ˜€

  28. LorenzoCelsi says:

    I stopped practicing karate for three reasons:1. I was always late because of work2. I was always nervous because of work, that was affecting the practicing.3. I could not progress any more, both because of the place where I was practicing and the poor effort I was putting in it. Then I got a little bored.Besides, when you get older, you know, things get more difficult. I started to have pain in my knees, etc.

  29. gdare says:

    Mit – your father is in martial arts? is he practicing some kind of Kung Fu as well?I know that a lot of people need to stop practicing martial arts (or something else) because they needed to choose between other important things in their lives. I might say I was lucky. Choices I had in front of me alowed me to share my time between them and my martial arts practice :happy:Jill – thank you; well, I am considering of making one short temporary post with that video; we will see ๐Ÿ˜€

  30. rose-marie says:

    Ah, Battodo! I believe I saw a picture (from a video) of you doing that once :up:

  31. thaodp says:

    Darko, you're really lucky ๐Ÿ™‚ About my father, he isn't doing anything related but he likes martial arts and good at some kinds, not Kung Fu but our traditional martial arts. Practising and traditional medicial herbs has helped him got over cerebral vascular accident because of high blood pressure.

  32. gdare says:

    Jill – of course :DLorenzo – feeling a pain in shoulders, knees, toes, fingers, back… this is inevitable after some time of serious practice :insane:Rose – I have put photos about it earlier, I think after my return from Japan in 2006 :DMit – what kind of traditional martial arts you have in Vietnam? Maybe you can post about it, I would like to read about them :up:

  33. thaodp says:

    We have Vovina, Nhat Nam, Tay Son, Binh Dinh… However I don't know much to write about them ๐Ÿ˜ฎ You can read something here and here

  34. SittingFox says:

    I'm working for the government, actually – for the Home Office. I'm a Civil Servant (and yes I'm a big Yes Minister fan :D)

  35. SittingFox says:

    It's a good mental challenge ๐Ÿ™‚ I have lots of things to arrange and lots of spreadsheets to make using Excel. It's not a permanent job though. I'd like to work there until I get a puppy later in the year though ๐Ÿ˜‰

  36. gdare says:

    Mit – thanks for links, it was interesting to read :up: I didn`t even know Vietnam has such developed system of martial arts :)Adele – I have heard of Yes Minister but it was not in our television; so, your work is actually a fun? :left: *envious*

  37. sanshan says:

    I have an idea! Get yourself a cat. They always get into trouble, and they are very photogenic. Always something to write about when you have a cat. :lol:Also, I think everyone here should write to the Opera people and tell them it's time you were member of the week. Then you'll have lots of pressure to write about something. ๐Ÿ˜€

  38. ellinidata says:

    Just stopping in to say "have a great weekend"

  39. gdare says:

    ๐Ÿ˜† I don`t like it, really. I use it in my work sometimes when I have to have a lot of numbers counted at the end of lines or columns. But if I need to make a table, I rather use Word :POn the other hand, my job is focused on use of CorelDraw and Photoshop most of the time ๐Ÿ™‚

  40. gdare says:

    Adele – :sst: Excel is boring :PSanshan – :no: I don`t think I need that much attention ๐Ÿ˜† On the other hand it would be nice to have a cat. By I live with old grandparents and my grandpa is having asthma so having a cat around would be hard for him. But this is a nice idea :yes:Angeliki – thank you, have a great weekend yourself :happy:

  41. studio41 says:

    Excel is one of my favourite things. (I have to say that because my husband is listening) ๐Ÿ˜†

  42. edwardpiercy says:

    Well I just did a post on a pair of frigging pliers. Hummph! :pYes, I agree with Allan. You just pushed through it, and something good came out the other side.

  43. gdare says:

    Jill – when this is for getting things done in work, then this is usually not a fun ๐Ÿ˜€ But I like the power that software has :up:Ed – and you did it very good :yes::sst: I will try to make another post today :left:

  44. studio41 says:

    I don't know CorelDraw, but I assume Photoshop is fun! Joe enjoys reading computer manuals (instead of books)… like Excel. ๐Ÿ˜†

  45. studio41 says:

    I probably would to, if I knew how to use it! :confused:

  46. Spaggyj says:

    Everyone has those times when nothing particularly worth mentioning seems to surface up from the murky depths of the mind. I think you put a lot of thought and time into your posts. Probably more than anyone on my friend list, actually, and it's always a pleasure to read them. I know I watch this blog eagerly, because when a post comes up I know I'm going to be in for a good, thought-provoking read. I would wait a long time for that. And besides, quality is better than quantity, right?

  47. gdare says:

    Thank you. I am really giving my best to make my posts interesting and worth spending some time. Even with easy topics ๐Ÿ™‚

  48. Marike79 says:

    I dont post regular so I can't really tell you anything…. I'm sorry :awww:

  49. gdare says:

    It is ok Marike, I will find my way out. I always do ๐Ÿ˜€
