What's inspiring me today

I'm feeling creative today and inspired by so many things.

♥ This song—a reminder to seize the day.


Lyrics here.

♥ Poet Ted Kooser. I try to write every day, whether it's fiction or memoir or just a vignette about something I've seen or done. Today feels like a poetry day. One of my biggest inspirations is Ted Kooser, a poet who has the ability to see so much in the simple things in life. I adore "Tattoo." The poem he reads in this video, "Daddy Longlegs," is also one of my favorites.




♥ Today's sunrise. I wish I would have thought to take a picture. The sky was gorgeous this morning, all pink and blue stripes—absolutely beautiful and inspiring!

  3. Beautiful picture of the sky--I wish I ever got up early enough for a sunrise! At least I see pretty sunsets from my office windows lately.

    1. I love that picture, but I have to say that the sunrise I saw this morning was even more vibrant.

      Sunsets are beautiful, too. It's just too bad that they come so early in the day now. :)

  5. Carpe Diem.
    MUCH better than "Carpe Carp."
    Who wants to seize a fish, anyway?

  8. Sunshine found a crack in dark gray skies, and hit my desk with some golden rays at the exactly the right moment to give me a little umph today. I'd have taken a picture if I'd had a camera. It was a moment of awesome beauty!
