amen...


I'm passing along these words from my friend Brock Street, because when I read them on his blog, I couldn't forget them...

"why, oh why am i always on the prowl for inspiration. is it because i cannot find satisfaction in my own surroundings? is it because i am not grateful for all the blessing? these are the questions i ask myself often...as if my thirst is never quenched.

i must confess the above is far from the truth. i simply am addicted to dreaming and creating and living a bit outside of my reality. aspire...not for more or better or even beauty...just an enormous appreciation...."

My thanks to Brock Street for putting into words what I could not.

Yes, I love seeing what other's have done for inspiration, I guess the key is to remain happy with your own situation at the same time. Janell

Thank you for sharing that link. I saw him comment on something recently that made me look to see if he had a blog and I couldn't find a link.

That is perfect...

Charlotta Ward said...

Very well said.

I think for me it is also the opportunity to learn more, develop and grow. I love to learn and have an addiction to expand my knowledge and to philosophize over all the marvelous inspiration presented.

Happy weekend my friend and warm hugs.

Brock *did* express so perfectly what I think so many of us feel...daily, in our hunger to visually appreciate all the glorious creativity out there.
