Shared Inspiration

After nearly a full week of writing, I’m aching for some discussion. Or perhaps some good old fashion show and tell!

I truly believe we are all creative beings. It is how we express this creativity that makes the world a delightfully variable collection of human endeavors.  This post is an opportunity for my readers to engage and share. I’m looking forward to knowing what makes your world go around. What inspires you? When to you feel that fire of life? How do you express yourself? Do you draw, write, act, play music, make old things new, work with clay, or sing? Do you enjoy cooking, caring for plants, or finding a quite place in nature? Do you gain a sense of inspiration for reading others work or visiting museums and then developing your own ideas? What is it that you do that helps you feel at ease in the world? cropped-dscn7677.jpg

  1. First of all, this blog inspires me! The fact that you are so honest with your experiences and have asked people to share their’s just makes me smile.

    When I was younger I used to think that being creative meant that you could paint or draw. I couldn’t do either until I tried recently. Whether or not anyone else thinks my work is spectacular doesn’t really matter. It’s mine and I felt something magical while creating it. Since then, I have expanded my views on what an artist truly is and what it means to be creative. We all have an artist within. There is art in how we raise our children, write our names, speak to others, and dance with life. Being a mother and wife inspires me, listening to great music, practicing yoga, working with children, and connecting with others is what brings so much meaning to me on a daily basis.
