moody blue



such a great couple of days i had this week, so now that i'm back before the computer and have to settle down to some serious writing, i'm feeling a little bit moody blue. the overcast day yesterday, made for moody lighting when i took pictures to document my theory that there's not a boring chair in denmark. the curvy sofa-agtig (that danish for -ish is just so much better than -ish) chair above, the curvy blue chairs below, prove it once again.



i think my moody blues are stemming from leaving behind my good old friends and the good energy of the place (i guess the atmosphere can't help but be fantastic in such surroundings). but it's also the people there. people are motivated and happy and busy and energized and the good energy every individual seems to have feeds all of the good energy of everyone else around them in kind of a big happy, productive circle. it's a wonderful, motivating place to be. i used to go there frequently in my previous job and it was so nice to be back there this week. i wish i could hold onto the good vibe and let it carry me through the rest of this week, but it's somehow so fleeting, so instead i feel a bit sad that i'm not still there today. maybe writing the stories i gathered there, which is what i must do next, will bring it back.

You are so right about the productive circle. Love reading about it, some food for thought for today while planning the next couple of weeks.

Sorry but this thought is not that deep, I just wanted to tell you that I love your softas indeed.

Cheers

it's always all about the people. my best job was temping for a group of accountants, I was doing filing, but the people there were so fantastic that I have only good memories from that place

I love that second set of charis, they look very plush

That's the beauty of writing, I'm sure it'll take you back and help you recreate that feeling again!
Oh, how I love those sofas!

Tessa said...

Ah, curvy blue perfection. And yes, writing always brings it back...I do that all the time, but it sometimes makes me bawl buckets! But only sometimes...

I'm sure I've told you before, -agtig is Afrikaans too and we tag it onto the end of everything. Wonderfully expressive.
Lovely blue chairs!
And PS, no more verification words?

i know that feeling so well. it's weird. a bit like a social hangover, although that comparison doesn't do it justice.

glad you had such a good time though, and you seem very creative despite your blues: those aptly blue hues - not only in those chairs, but also in your new header which i love - are really beautiful.

margie said...

exactly as kristina says, a social hangover. i never though of it that way but it is the perfect description of the letdown. have a great day. your photos, as usual, are to die for.

Very timely for me today as the weather here is overcast and has got me feeling blue as well.
I love the sofa-agtig thingie too, and the suffix itself. How is it pronounced?
Have a great day and I hope you find your sunny spot...

i love the blue chairs. very sensuous. its so true what you say about people. they play such an imp role in mood, your energy level, and most importantly in making you feel positive or even vice versa

glad you had a good time and share the energy here

julochka said...

Ah the moody blues - love the curve of the furniture, blues aside. I usually associate the moody blues w/ being tired and overwhelmed. Hope things in your world soon are looking up! xo

When you work with great people. it doesn't really feel like work after all.

I do love those chairs.

Things you need
- a cosy blanket
-somewhere warm looking to sit
-some soup
-a hug
and
- to tell us your stories full of happiness and positiity!

I do hope your moody blue go away, you strike me as a very positive person!

I like how the blue in this post matches the shades of blue in your header! To me, this post is visually very happy. Hope you feel better soon.

Bee said...

I"m just hung up on the detail of agtig being ish in Danish. I may try that out with some English words!

More seriously, you are good at creating circles. This energy will come back to you, I'm sure.

I understand those feelings so well this week...
