003Happy whatever day it is. Truth be told, I’ve been so busy with customers lately that I haven’t had time for this blog.  No excuse, just fact.

So this will probably be a short one, but I was inspired today and had to write about the inspiration.

I have an incubator in my writing studio, and in that incubator are little quail eggs.  Well today our first one hatched, and honestly, I was blown away watching that little baby climb out of her shell and lay there so beautiful and helpless.  I gently picked her up and yes, I had tears in my eyes.

Life is so damned precious.  How could anyone feel differently?  I was in awe of the scene playing out in front of me, and I was humbled to be holding that new life in my hands.

And that leads us to today’s topic….inspiration!


The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.

Helen Keller

Excuse me if I sound like I’m on my high horse. I don’t mean to sound like that.  It’s just that I can’t understand how writers cannot find inspiration in their daily lives.  My goodness, open your eyes and look around you.

Last night two young girls came to our door. They were selling cookies for a school fundraiser, and of course we bought some, because I’ve never seen a chocolate chip cookie I didn’t like.  Anyway, they were adorable….two sisters….polite, innocent, their whole lives in front of them…and I was touched by it all.  Such a simple scene from life, but it was heartwarming and I just wanted to sit down and write about them at that very moment.


Get out, live life, and let it inspire you.  Allow your senses to swallow up every magical moment of this gift called life, and then write about it, paint it for others, and share in the wonder.

You are writers. Use the talent you have to inspire others…please!


I just don’t know when. I seem to have a lot to do of late, but I’m sure I’ll be back sooner rather than later. I hope you are all enjoying this week…and life.
