follow your intu-wish-n
Hello! it’s such a wonderful treat to be a guest here in Louise’s beautiful new space. I often find myself stopping by, just like you, in search of a little something to fill my creative well. wandering through the online universe is something i love to do especially when i have the time to lose myself in all the delicious images and words. i always stumble upon shiny moments and serendipitous inspiration that, each in their own way, become a spark in my own world.
That’s the thing about inspiration… it most often takes me by surprise and sweeps me off my feet! it’s emotional, visceral, and spellbinding as i simply follow my intuition opening door after door, following link after link. it fills me up in ways that nothing else really can.

Sometimes I’m inspired by colors or textures, or maybe it’s an idea or a desire or an emotion. sometimes it’s wanting to capture a moment and somehow make it permanent by wrapping it in words, fabric or paint as a way to try to hold on to it forever. always, I’m inspired by the things that make me feel most connected to living in my own creative life and the little earthquakes of my everyday journey unfolding… the things that bring me real joy and ultimately mirror the truth of who i am. when i listen to what inspires me i hear my soul gently whispering, and beside me i hear the whispering of others all around me here in this beautiful creative community as well.
Creative living is vibrant and resonant in this way. it wants to be expressed and shared and to persist like a starry night. it creates a beautiful endless circle of giving and gathering. I love this quality, and adore following the breadcrumbs of all of our stories and collecting them in big yummy handful’s to feast on and nourish my own life.
Thank you for being a special part of that – of my story. now GO! off to follow your own breadcrumb trail. magic awaits.

Thanks to Mindy for putting into words how it feels to be an artist, to create, to beautify one’s surroundings through the act of making! I love to find out what inspires other artists, and that, in turn, inspires me!
Hi Jenny, thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment – i agree, it’s inspirational seeing how other artists are also inspired. 🙂
Mindy, I love your poetic view of how we connect in a starry circle of inspired thought. I do believe we do. I think we have to be open to see the breadcrumbs that lead us down the pathway to our own interpretation. It is a beautiful, soul filled journey, if one adjusts their view to the bigger picture of the whole, the creative spirit.
