Inspiration

There are so many things in this world that inspire me. The rays of light of a brilliant sunset. The first green bud of a spring leaf. The smile of a stranger. The love of my family. The excitement of adventure and renewal discovering a new place or thing. Life is full of miraculous wonders. All we have to do is stop and take the time to look.

A big inspiration in my life has always been nature. I gravitate towards mountains and to the water of a lake or the sea. If I am ever feeling out of sorts all I have to do is take a step outside and explore. Hiking, running, skiing and walking are passions of mine that I can do outdoors in nature and instantly feel inspired by my surroundings.

Sometimes I go far….

Iceland

Or sometimes I simply go right outside my door….

Nature is always my muse and inspiration.

But what would life be without love? I am inspired by the love I give to others and the love that I receive whether it be my immediate family or the kind smile of a stranger in an unknown land.

There are so many beautiful things in this world to inspire us. Sometimes we have to remember to open our eyes wide and take a look.

  5. very nice set of photos. And with THAT right outside your door, no need to be going “far” ALL the time. But yeah, we all should go far some times.
