There is an endless, continuous supply of inspiration for us all out there, I love that! We each see something different and unique that captures our hearts and makes us ponder on that moment for that second longer. What is your favourite source of inspiration?
My backyard has come alive this past week! The Wattle Trees and Blackwood are in full bloom (making for fabulous sneezing competitions!!), the birds are busy, singing day and night, yes I said night; the magpies are warbling away at 1am?! and everything is so green and lush. We’ve been blessed with the return of our distinct 4 seasons this year and I love the individual aspects of each. I’m ready for Spring though now, come on, please, you can stop teasing us all with these half days of brilliance and warmth pfffft, just bring it on!! The hint of warmth has been so invigorating. It’s awakening my mind and refocusing my attention to detail after the lazy, long winter we’ve had. I’m inspired to get out walking daily again as it’s not so finger and toe numbingly cold and frosty anymore. I’m still traumatised by a childhood memory of being told to stay indoors out of the cold or Jack Frost would bite my toes off! Maybe a slight excuse… One thing I’ve been wondering though is where is all our birdseed disappearing to?! There’s a lot of birds around at the moment, but we’ve been putting out a lot of seed! Last night we discovered who’s been devouring it all…Mr Barry Brushtail Possum is the culprit!!
Today, I also want to thankyou all for the incredible response you’ve shown to my blog, the positivity, encouragement, compliments and feedback has been heartfelt and generous and I am very grateful. A beautiful breath of relief has been breathed and a very happy smile is settled upon my face as this has been an almighty step forward, one that took a lot of work and courage. I am especially happy that this little regular post brings you some inspiration, a moment of joy, an escape for one to reflect and ponder those inner thoughts and yearnings. Listen to them and take note, don’t supress them for years like I did! There’s such a beautiful, meaningful message in there if you want to hear it. A few of you requested some images of my illustrations, so I’ve shown a couple for you today, hope you like them (o:
