Being inspired

The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #115: Inspiration

Have a listen to a bit of Aussie music while you have a read

Inspiration. What inspires me? Who inspires me? The list of bloggers who inspire is far to long to list and I am afraid I would leave someone out which would be unforgivable. Probably if you are reading this YOU are an inspiration either with your wonderful photos (whose ideas I might steal every now and then) or incredible your poetry and words.

With what I do in the shed, my inspiration has to be my Grandfathers and Father who gave me the innate skills to use tools

This is the first shed I built to do stuff in.

Music has always been part of my life inspired by my Mother who played piano and encouraged me to pick up a guitar. I have lots of music and mostly always have music playing.

A few of my CD’s

I still have that guitar in the above photo

Probably my early life in Scouts gave me a love of the Australian bush and our environment. I became part of the solution and still do my part to try and make our world a better place. Landcare is a wonderful way to help others.

An Australian poet Nan Whitcomb who wrote The Thoughts of Nanushka, inspired my poetry. My Mum saw her on TV and told me about her while shelling the peas in the kitchen when I got home from work.

Towering

Terri’s Sunday Stills: Towering Turmoil

I don’t know about the turmoil part but I sure I can get on with a bit of towering. Here’s a song to listen while having a scroll

I guess I did find a bit of towering turmoil after all. The good news is that the big Tallow Wood tree on my place is alive and standing and has new growth after the devastating fires of last year. In case you didn’t know here is a bit of what happened at Durranbah
