Something that makes someone want to do something or that gives someone an idea about what to do or create: A force or influence that inspires someone. Merriam-Webster

What inspires me everyday is the beauty, grace and joy Muriel gave the world – the simplicity of her view.

I’m inspired by laughter, dreams, friendships, and belief in the sincerity of others.  Inspired by the quality in a person that is free of pretense, deceit or hypocrisy.

Inspiration comes from within with the appreciation of my surroundings, the faces I see and the experiences I have - the hug of a niece, laughing at a pet’s antics, my feet in the sand, my face to the wind, a bunny in the park, sailing the sea, a child daydreaming by the shore watching dolphins out ahead and birds above.

These are some of the things that bring inspiration to me and to my creativity.
