Conflict

con·flict

noun \ˈkän-ˌflikt\ 

  1. fight, battle, war <an armed conflict>
  2.  a : competitive or opposing action of incompatibles : antagonistic state or action (as of divergent ideas, interests, or persons) b : mental struggle resulting from incompatible or opposing needs, drives, wishes, or external or internal demands
  3. the opposition of persons or forces that gives rise to the dramatic action in a drama or fiction

As the work week begins, many of us will feel the mental struggle resulting from opposing needs and/or demands… the proverbial swamp draining vs. keeping the alligators off your neck.  I would dare say this gives rise to dramatic action.

 Take this image for example, we have the warm tones and serene feeling from the sunset on the left and on the right we have the cool tone and anger of the approaching storm.  Me?  I like the dramatic action resulting from this opposition of forces.  Happy Monday!
