Those moments in time when we feel a sense of renewal or the nudge or surge of inspiration are precious. It’s a time when the lenses through which we view life may clear. It’s a time when we feel inspired to take on a challenge or overcome an obstacle. When we value again that which we have stopped noticing or have been taking for granted. When the seed of an idea appears, turns to a concept, and starts us on a creative journey.
That moment may occur out in nature.
Or in the quiet of a zen-like garden.
It might occur with a small group of friends over tea.
Or in a large group of women with stories to share that inspire us.
As creatives, we need time to be open and renew; to feel the energy of being connected – to each other, nature, and ideas; to be quiet and listen – to ourselves, to the ideas that are knocking …
Where do you renew, refill, and let inspiration in?

I renew with taking a walk and getting out of the circles I run inside my head and noticing the world around me. Also, a ride on my horse, or just hanging with him taking in the smells of horse and hay. Love his big eyes watching me.
Taking a walk. Being around such a stately animal. Wonderful.
