7 Deadly Sins: Acedia (b&w)

Challenge #4 in the Sevens series. Hosted by mschf.
Challenge has finished
The 7 Deadly Sins, used since the advent of Christianity, are the most objectionable vices which beckon humans to sin (more info at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_deadly_sins). This challenge explores "acedia" (also known as "sloth" or "despair"), its most basic definition being "the failure to utilize one's talents and gifts; laziness; indifference". There are numerous ways to interpret this with imagery and it is now up to your creativity and perhaps a little research to come up with something that portrays this "deadly sin".
