I posted a photograph of something that inspired me a few months ago. It was a random moment to be inspired. It’s not something I plan to do often, but I did like how it broke up the story posts with something different.
Had a bit more of that in the last couple of days. The movement restrictions have eased in the area so I have been out walking. The spot I prefer to walk in the morning gives me a fun, two kilometer (a bit more than a mile) stroll. I suppose the time away from this spot, made worse because I rarely go there in winter, made it more impactful.
I took quite a few pictures, partly to compensate for my photography failing and partly to capture as much as I could. I will not spam these. Posted are highlights. If you like nature and trees and such, then this will probably appeal to you. A recent post by the Wee Writing Lassie also helped prompt this exposition. Yes, trees and nature are amazing.
The goal of this blog is not to get into the nitty-gritty of my creative process, inspiration or the like. Most of my story ideas come out of nowhere; and the rest from a potpourri of experiences. That said, I do have more traditional moments of inspiration that get my creative wheels turning. This morning I was walking the dog in a familiar place, like I have done many times before, and a particular look at my surroundings got me started. Completely formative ideas, mind you. What’s funny is how this same (same-ish?) look at the scenery never struck me this way before. Another random moment, perhaps? I do not have an answer to that. I thought, for no good reason, I would share that moment. It is a blog thing to do.
Sorry about the picture quality. I was not thinking about posting this at the time; and it was roughly 1 degree Celsius (34-ish Fahrenheit) and beginning to snow.
