My INSPIRATION (Travel Theme: Inspiration)

This week Ailsa, from Where’s My Backpack, has chosen the word INSPIRATION for this week’s Travel Theme. Fortunately I need go no further then my kitchen window when in need of inspiration.

Inspiration Outside

Imagine my delight only yesterday as I’m waiting for my coffee, seeing this Bald Eagle settle in a tree just outside my kitchen window. A little something special on a day that kinda needed it.





Inspiration isn’t always black and white! (Monochrome Monday)

I stumbled upon this photo the other day that I took for the Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge of Inspiration a few weeks back. Looking at it again I wondered how it would look as a black and white.

Inspiration - Black and White

Don’t know about you but I actually think it looks better in black and white as it really makes the raindrops pop and shine. To see the colour version click here.





Early Morning INSPIRATION! (WPC)

Ironically INSPIRATION, this week’s photo challenge from the Daily Post, is just what I need… 😦

You see I’m “decluttering” the house. Finally I’m getting rid of all those things we “couldn’t live without” yet have seldom, if not NEVER, used. And sadly, as you would know if you’ve ever decluttered, it always looks worse before it looks better.

So as I sat with my coffee, chin in hand, choosing to look out my kitchen window rather than the chaos within, I noticed a tree outside seemingly illuminated as the raindrops hanging from its leaves glistened in the early morning clouded light.

Early Morning Inspiration!

Inspiration right outside my kitchen window, doesn’t really get much better then that does it? These plants not so long ago were looking for some inspiration themselves as their leaves slowly withered. With the rain however comes renewed life. Dust is washed from the leaves, energy is taken within.

Not certain that’s quite what’s happening with me right now, more likely that fourth espresso is finally kicking in, whatever it is though, I’m ready to tackle my decluttering day once again. Wish me luck!
