This week we’re talking about what inspires us. So I had to think about this one, because everything inspires me.
Let me give you an example. Gene and I were standing on the deck of a bar we were at, waiting for a charity ride to begin. I saw a couple walking up to the bar that I hadn’t seen in a while and I smiled. This couple had been married and divorced and married to each other again. I’m happy they’ve got it right this time. Then I glanced over at my best friend and her husband chatting with some folks. They’ve been married, divorced and remarried to each other. My husband asked what I was chuckling about and I told him what I just figured out. He then pointed to another couple of friends of ours who’ve been through the same thing. It was at that point that I realized, every person, couple, family or group has a story to tell. Some of them, many stories or snippets of stories that can be strung together and woven into a great story.
Looking around at the people I associate with either on a daily or minimal basis, I find that all I need to do is ask a couple of questions and a story unfolds. What inspires you? It doesn’t have to be telling stories, it can be drawing, painting, cooking, or any other pursuit.
What inspires you?
