For me, there are many things that bring a peace of mind and make me feel inspired. There are various items I could consider my rainmaker.
The number one thing that inspires me most is photography; capturing light in a unique way to create an image that causes emotion. When I am somewhere with my Nikon around my neck and the golden light catches the scene perfectly, I am at one with myself. The sound created by the flip of the shutter is like music to my ears. It gratifies my eardrums tremendously. The moment is preserved and I feel complete.
During instants like this, or even anything that gets me thinking on a deeper level, I write down a thought or two. I strive to convey my feelings in a unique way of words. Or when other pieces of writing catch my lyrical eye,
I remember them and write them down also.
There is one place where these items converge. It’s my blog site; which is titled the same as this paper. It’s here that I post photos I take, ideas I write, or other’s creations that I love. It’s where I connect with the language of my soul. Expressing my personal thoughts really helps me to analyze myself and the situations I’m in. It provides a peace of mind and a clarity that sometimes I fall back on.
