Theme: Creativity Toolbox
I = Inspiration
Inspiration sparks us deep within our souls, minds and hearts to urge us forward in creativity. Inspiration can start with words, music, images, people, faith, and experiences and build within us to blossom in our writing, our art, our music, our words, our relationships with others, and all that we do.
Here are a few sources of inspiration for me lately:
This picture is from BlackComb Mtn, above Whistler Village where the 2010 Olympics took place. Whistler is actually home to two Mtn ski areas - Whistler and BlackComb. We skied and boarded both last week. Skiing isn't just great exercise, but it seems to fill me up on the inside too. My father-in-law at age 72 still skis black diamond and double black diamond runs. He's in better shape than all of his kids and grandkids and he inspires all of us to keep moving.
My parents are also both very determined to live life to the fullest, no matter their age. Recently, I taught them "how to" blog so they could keep everyone posted on their scooter trip to Savannah, Georgia. They are on the road and still getting the hang of blogging, but you can visit them at Scooter Trippin and see them in their all weather gear. They are both in their 70's and wearing special motorcycle gear with "armor" inside that will hopefully protect them. Then they have huge "all weather" suits for the rain that go on top of that. The way they live their lives inspires me to dream big and then make those dreams happen.
Other people that inspire me are: my homeschool co-op students, my kids, my mom-in-law, my family, my friends, and my blogging buddies.
Thank you for inspiring me to dream, to write, to create, and to live life fully!
