What inspires?

Joy is the holy fire that keeps our purpose warm and our intelligence aglow.

Helen Keller

What inspires?
What are you passionate about? What motivates you and inspires you to get out of bed in the mornings and get going? On a personal note I am inspired by nature, my spiritual life, discovery of new places and people, and taking care of my body, mind and soul. Taking care is an important part of who I am as I also take care of others and care about environmental changes in our world too. I have a need to explore, experience and express: Expression of my excitement of life, what I care about and my personal experiences.  Expression is where I use my creativity, whether it is writing, art, singing or dancing. It is my way of being fully engaged in life.

 My vision.
Without further ado or discussion about the past year I want to introduce my vision for my blogging this year: As we go forward into 2021 I wish to share my Artist’s Journey, our Canadian dalliance, and Weight and Health Matters in the form of inspirations, reflections, poems, art, and photos.  In short, this year will be about art, travel and health (personal and global).

What are you inspired by and what is your vision for the year? Feel free to tell me in the discussion.  

May your future hold 
the songs of Joy, 
the face of hope, 
the rhythm of purpose, 
and the spark of intelligence.

  1. Very admirable that your inspiration comes from such a deep place of experiences and expressions. I look forward to the art, travel and health in your blogs.

    My inspiration is growth, consciously taking part in the co-creation journey by being in the present moment. I think I share on collecting experiences by being in the present moment to moment. The more I find myself the more of my artistic side I discover. Untill a few months ago I didn’t know I liked poetry let alone create it. I discovered how to observe nature and spend alot of time in it, canvas paintings move me and writing.

  2. Morag, I like to write, and hopefully, this new year to illustrate some of my writing; winter words in winter, spring words in spring and so on. I wish to pay attention and homage to the seasons, the earth and my place in nature and to keep moving forward. 😊🙏

    • That is really lovely, I too am very aware of the seasons and like to do certain crafts in different seasons. I am very affected by the seasons and the cycles. I even allow myself to sleep longer in winter, I like to think of it as a partial hibernation 😀. I am looking forward to reading your posts and seeing some of your illustrations. All the best ❄️🌱☀️🍂

  3. What a beautiful vision, Morag! I look forward to your future posts. So far as I’m concerned, I would like to share my own experiences and stories, apart from some topics of banking and finance.
