“You see, some things I can teach you. Some you learn from books. But there are things that, well, you have to see and feel.”
– Khaled Hosseini, A Thousand Splendid Suns
Who inspires you?
Who makes your mind sing?
That spark or light,
That lets your imagination take flight?
I’m very inspired by Deborah Frances-White and the work she does to inspire women to be strong and loud and visible. I urge you all to listen to her podcasts.
One of the authors that I find most inspiring is Khaled Hosseini, his books transport you into the lives of other people. Giving you a taste of something so real it strikes you as strange when you look up to find your world in front of you.
Just two of my current inspirations, I felt compelled to share.
“The first week of August hangs at the very top of summer, the top of the live-long year, like the highest seat of a Ferris wheel when it pauses in its turning. The weeks that come before are only a climb from balmy spring, and those that follow a drop to the chill of autumn, but the first week of August is motionless, and hot. It is curiously silent, too, with blank white dawns and glaring noons, and sunsets smeared with too much color.”
Natalie Babbitt, Tuck Everlasting
