Fighting Stagnation!

I don't know about you, but I dislike the feeling of stagnation and repetition. The knowledge that I have same task ahead of me that I had the previous day, week, month can be grating, and I relish each opportunity to try new things. Fortunately, my occupation (I work from home) allows me ample time to pursue my hobbies and interests, but even then I still get that itchy feeling that I am stuck with the same routine ahead of me. When this happens, it's a sign that it is time to shake things up, start fresh and begin a new project or two. 

Well I got that itchy feeling this past week...

What am I working on? I began composing a new piano piece, haven't written music in a while, and it has been thrilling to sit down and add a few new notes the score each day. While it is not finished yet, here are two other piano pieces that I previously composed:

This last weekend I also participated in a tournament at my local board game store that began at midnight and went to 7am - crazy right, but a great way to mixup my schedule (no I didn't win, sadly). I was able to get some lovely photographs of the pale sunrise as I left the store that morning that I would not have captured if I hadn't gone to the event.
