Today I am grateful for newly recovered inspiration. Just beginning this practice of gratitude in this blog journal has re-ignited something in me that has felt dormant...or gone entirely...for a while. Putting fingers to keyboard (used to be pen to paper) and tapping out thoughts and musings have rekindled that little pilot flame to be creative.
It kind of started Thursday night when I went to Riverside's Arts Walk. Visiting museums and interacting with the creative types, "creatives", felt good. I was reminded of how good it feels to be inspired to create. Whether it be through my writings, my photography or even just garden landscaping, it just feels like home.
I am reminded that the word inspiration means first to inspire, to take in air, ie breathing. It is in breathing, that life is sustained. And the arts are life sustaining too, thus inspiring. Get it? Thank heavens for the ability to be inspired. Even when the embers grow cold, a few good targeted exhales can re-light the fire. Today I give thanks and breathe in inspiration.
