The lull

The last post I made turned out to be my 100th.  I should I have marked it somehow?  Meh. Anyway, at the moment, I am still in cruise control with my mood.  It hasn’t dropped much at least.  The only problem is my motivation to do anything creative outside of work has dropped off a cliff.  It is strange.  Just before I go to bed at night, I have all these ideas and think to myself that tomorrow I’ll do those things.  Then tomorrow comes, and I don’t.  I wish I could get out of the rut.  I will have to force myself to do a little each day to get back into things.  I’m sure that when I do, I’ll find my groove again.

However, reading the news today about antibodies not …
