Inspiration: Storms

with 2 comments

Storms are one of those terrifying and magnificent natural occurrences. There are many types of storms: snow storms, ice storms, thunder storms, tornadoes, hurricanes, dust storms, the list could go on. And yes, while they can be destructive, they are beautiful in their own way.  Storms are awe-inspiring.

Inspiration: Time

leave a comment »

All around us, controlling us with it’s simple majesty, is time. Time is invisible and yet visible at the same time. It affects us and changes us without even doing a thing. Time is mysterious and ultimately, inspiring.

(Happy Harry Potter premiere day everyone! If you are seeing it and haven’t seen it yet, it’s amazing!)

Inspiration: Nature

leave a comment »

I think a lot of people forget where we live. We can walk out of our front door and we’re surrounded by nature. Look out of your window at a tree, at a patch of grass, up at the clouds in the sky or the falling raindrops. There’s beauty even in the smallest and silliest things.

Inspiration: Magic

with one comment

Magic is the impossible. Magic is when your imagination steps outside of reality for a breath of fresh air. Magic happens when you break through normality, see something beyond the average.

Inspiration: Nostalgia

leave a comment »

Nostalgia: a wistful desire to return to a former time in one’s life, to one’s home, homeland, or to ones family and friends. A yearning for the happiness of a former place or time. I’m not sure what it is about autumn, especially once it starts going, but it always brings back good memories for me. This week’s inspiration is nostalgia. Here’s to the memories.

Inspiration: Lust

leave a comment »

So overly sexy that it drives people to do crazy things. So dangerous that it was named one of the Seven Deadly Sins. Stronger than any other sexual emotion, it’s like playing with fire. Lust is beautiful and deadly, and it’s this week’s inspiration.

Inspiration: Reinvention

leave a comment »

Inspiration comes from anything. For me, sometimes I see a picture and I’m just stunned. It doesn’t always spark rampant creativity, but it makes me want to create something. For today’s post, my inspiration is from reinvention and looking at things differently.
