Where I Look For Inspiration (2)

I try to be conscious of where and how I find inspiration.  Last November I wrote THIS BLOG listing other fantastic blogs I follow that give me inspiration.  I think it's not only important to feel inspired but to be mindful as to where that inspiration in coming from, I don't want to miss out on a great experience because I'm not paying attention.

When we were living in Cache Valley inspiration was not hard to find; driving home from work we often saw spectacular wildlife:  Moose, wild turkeys, hawks, bald eagle, and deer.  The terrain in Cache Valley was diverse too:  Pine trees, aspen trees, rocky cliffs, rolling hills, corn fields, beautiful old barns, and farm animals on every corner (we lived in a farming community 30 miles North of Logan Utah).  Moving to Texas has been a bit hard for me because there isn't a lot of nature diversity here; there are beautiful trees and I've seen squirrels and rabbits. . . do cicadas (insect) count?  The cicadas do sing beautiful songs (Listen Here).

Different people find inspiration in different ways and places.  I don't have to limit myself to the outdoors and wildlife, I have several other ways of finding inspiration:  Music, reading, watching a good documentary, listening to a good Ted Talk, cooking, writing, working on a creative project, and finding other creative people that I can relate to.  Lately beautiful photography has been helping me find inspiration.  I follow these three blogs solely for the beautiful pictures they post, take a look for yourself.  (Click on the name under each photo to be directed to their blogs.)
