Boredom. Sounds like such a mundane word, doesn’t it? Almost… banal.

I was asked if I was bored the other day, and it just struck me. I wasn’t, so perhaps the surprise of the question was what made it dawn on me. I am a writer, I am an artist, and I am no mere mortal. At the time, I had a backlog of podcasts and audio books, a book on the War of 1812, a Netflix subscription, and a solid internet connection. Why, for the love of frozen yogurt, would I be bored of all things? Rather off the cuff, I answered the question by saying…

Bored

Seems like a pretty solid motto to tuck in your back pocket for a rainy day.

By the by, I have other inspiring things like this posted on my “Quote Bucket” Pinterest board. Perhaps I shall post one or two here at a future date.
