Continuing thoughts on inspiration. . . .
Just a sampling of books from my bookshelf
to show you how much I love reading the words
of others as well as looking at the art created by other artists.
My shelves are bulging with books and magazines.
I am inspired through digesting the vision, the scope, the words
from writers. I apply it to my life or I compare how my thoughts differ.
I am excited by new ways to view the world, new art
techniques, new visions. I believe in keeping an open mind,
in the continual process for self growth, in change and in hope.
I think of my father who late in life quit his secure, routine engineering position
at Xerox and partnered with a friend. He left his pension and everything
he worked for up to that point. He took a risk on his vision.
He could have failed losing everything but instead,
went on to success beyond his imaginings.
Books, words, visionaries, risk takers, beautiful vistas
I would love to hear your sources of inspiration.
