The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life’s plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life. Robert Louis Stevenson
What inspires me to blog? This is my 4th Anniversary as a WordPress blogger and I’ve crossed a lot of bridges since that first day when I had the temerity to add my voice to the global conversation. I haven’t looked back even though I’ve had my share of major setbacks. What I’ve come to learn is that writing gives me hope, inspiration and joy, and infuses my spirit with a sense of gratitude and awe. So what exactly inspires me? Lots of things inspire me to blog. Top of my list is probably my love for meeting people, nature, travel, family, advocacy/volunteer work, learning, adventure, exercise, good food and much more.
With gratitude, all life appears as a blessing – without gratitude, all of life is perceived as a burden. Jonathan Lockwood Huie
I put together a wide range of pictures that show some of the things I do… I wanted a shot of me taking a shot of something but didn’t quite capture any that fit the bill… So I kept going through the piles… ADHD me! It’s all good. I hope these help and that they give you a glimpse into my world.
Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky. Rabindranath Tagore
I could probably write a book on each of the shots I included in this post as they tell a wide range of stories. They were taken all over the USA and in other countries; hence my international nomad title… But I’m coming close to feeling at home here. Home is where the heart finds rest. What inspires you?
