Inspiration!

What inspires any of us to do the things we love and also to carry out the task we don't always want to do? Music, the weather, laughter, a child's voice or something else? What brought this question to mind was  Rosalind Adam's Blog where she talked about rainbows. The same day I read Rosalind's Blog, that morning, whilst walking the doggies, we saw two amazing rainbows in the early morning sky. These are not something we see often down here, and as the dogs tugged on their leads, we watched the rainbow spread until there was a full curve, the colours dominating the sky creating a spectacular scene. Seeing both ends of the rainbow, we searched for the pot of gold, sadly it alluded us!

For me the weather plays an important part in my inclination and inspiration to do anything, I love the warmth and the sun, the freedom to sit outside and work. And as long as the sun shines, I will be inspired to do more and more, even the things I would rather not! Maybe you will share what inspires you to achieve.

Wow! I'm almost lost for words (but not quite). How wonderful that you saw that rainbow so soon after we had been talking about them. I'm sorry that you didn't find the pot of gold but what you have done is to send a special message of hope and strength to me and I suspect that's worth as much (or maybe even more) than any old pot of gold. Thank you so much for sharing your rainbow. X

We could see a really strong rainbow out of the office window the other day and my manager pointed out that it ended on the roof opposite (of the local post office!). Unfortunately there wasn't a pot of gold, otherwise I'm sure we would all have raced out there to get to it.

The weather has such an impact on what and how I write! I was just looking out through the window, where it's quiet, grey and rainy, and thinking about the impact it was having on my writing mood--then I read this! Hopefully we'll get a rainbow later in the day.

a favourite saying of mine: "to see the rainbow, first you must have the rain"

Loved your saying, Helen. x
