Photographic slump (not an old British dessert)

I wish I could take credit for this beautiful time-lapse photo of Highway 101 near Gold Beach, Oregon, but I snatched it from National Geographic.  My cameras and I haven't spent much time together in the last couple of years, but I intend to change that or go down in flames trying. In my case, this blog was always photo-driven, and when I have no photos to write about, I don't write. And I miss that.

So I'm looking for suggestions on how to get out of a photographic slump. Is it simply that after X number of years of life (we won't go into how many) everything starts looking like something you've already seen and photographed many times? How do you begin to look at the world again with fresh eyes?

I'll be giving you my thoughts and experiences, and my photos, as I travel down this road, and I would love to hear about your trip as well.
