Making Life an Adventure …

Just a short post today about what inspires me.

What does inspiration mean?  According to the dictionary, inspiration is somewhat philosophical calling on areas of theology and grand ideas.

Dictionary Definition

Now I don’t agree with the complexity of that definition it fails to really get the message across.  Inspiration comes in many forms, it doesn’t have to be something grand, it can simply be the sun inspiring you to go outside or at the other end of the scale, a great politician inspiring you to want to change the world.  Regardless of what it is that inspires you, I think inspiration is what makes the world go round.  Without inspiration we wouldn’t want to get up in the morning, nothing would happen and nothing would change.  Today my inspiration was simply the example above – the sun.  Its just something simple but why let its simplicity get in the way of its being inspiring?

Photography Experiment … There is hope for Spring/ Summer 2012 yet!

I know its raining outside (and has been for a while now).  Its supposed to be spring, yet the Daily Express has predicted not just rain but snow as well for may 2012.  In fact its supposed to be to coldest May on record.

I know its not ideal, when we ditched the coats, hats and scarves in favor of the shorts in March, that was the beginning of summer for many of us.  At least we thought it was!  But even if it is raining periodically and not as warm as we all hoped it would by now, I realized today that Spring/ Summer 2012 is starting to rear its head!

I braved the outside and captured these shots, really lovely and colourful maybe there’s hope for summer yet!

Beautiful plants still with the rain drops on them.
