“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 start of something is always the hardest part of the journey.
2018 has started and there are many things to reflect on and many things that need to be started. Our plans for this year’s travel and adventures are well on the way.
Part of the delay in the kick start of this year has been the other writing love in my life, my play writing, has taken a front seat at the moment due to my second play being published. I have put my links at the bottom of the page in a shameless self promotion.
No excuse is a good excuse, I know. But in any case this is an excuse that I am proud of.
Any way, on to the next thing, we’re off to an exhibition at the National History Museum. More to follow…
