easily inspired

i'm easily inspired.  it doesn't take much. walking...hiking...in the woods or at the beach...i see rocks, driftwood, shells...and all i want to do is take them home and make something out of them!!  i don't spend $$ on many things like jewelry...art for my walls at home...i prefer to make my own!

looking through magazines...seeing the sunset...sunrise...going to a craft fair...seeing the morning dew clinging to a spiderweb...watching the small bud open into a flower...finding bones...snake skins...ALL this inspires me. makes me want to sit for hours on end...creating...but i can't. i do have other obligations! damn!
there's just not enough hours in the day to get all i want to do...done...

 i get so excited when i find something that begins to morph in my head...but unfortunately...just like songs that sound so good in my head and then like fingernails on a chalkboard when i open my mouth...what i create doesn't always turn out how i had envisioned it  in my mind! but that's ok...i'll just let it sit on the sidelines...stew for a while.

anyway, i thought i'd post a few pic's here...photos i've taken. and the same holds true for photos as it does for my singing...the picture doesn't always turn out how i saw it in my mind...but it'll do.  ~enjoy!

    peace ,terica
