This week Krista’s topic of choice is inspiration. After reading her post I was left dithering. She takes a look at the new Canadian Museum of Human Rights so, as a South African, the first person to crossed my mind was Nelson Mandela. I think you’ll have to agree, a sentence containing inspiration and Madiba just seems correct.
However, we no longer live in SA so I can’t give you any photos of monuments or buildings associated with the great man. That got me thinking… how do I represent inspiration in one simple image? After all, life and all it throws at you is inspirational, is it not?
Two days ago I showed you a smiley painting I’d done especially for Thursday’s post. The enjoyment of doing that colourful snap of life has got me going, really going! As I mentioned on Thursday, Senior Son annexed the smiley so Junior Son, not to be outdone, commissioned his own copy.
So… if I really have to look for inspiration I don’t have to look too far to find it! A smile… yep, what’s the old story? A smile can sink a thousand ships!! A smile, especially a smile inspired by my family, is worth it all! We’re not going through the easiest time at the moment yet we are substantially more fortunate that about 90% of the global population. So, come to think of it… a smile is not so difficult to conjure up, is it??
SMILE! It’s easy…
