Seems like this time of the year always brings a case of the blahs, the post-holiday blues, the winter doldrums. Whatever you want to call it, it’s here. I wrote about it last year around the same time too. This year I’m trying to head it off before it gets me down.

A change of scenery works well, but that isn’t always practical. Today I decided to change my perspective right where I was. So I did what any normal, sane person would do, I laid down on the floor.

Yes. Yes I did.

I took my camera along with me, and decided to check things out from a different perspective. The first picture above is called Red Dishcloth. I’m real creative with naming things. But I quite enjoyed my red dishcloth as I lay beneath it on the floor. I’d never noticed how nice and bright and red my dishcloth was before.

This one is called Flower On a Chair.

It’s a flower, carved on a chair. So there.

I ventured outside too. My dog was more than confused as to why I was laying on the ground midwinter. Can’t wait to show you what I found outside. It’s amazing what’s right under your nose when you change your perspective. But for now I’m just sharing these photos with ya.

Stayed tuned for more from A Different Perspective.

How do you battle the winter blues, blahs, and those long gray overcast days? Do share. I love it when you share.
