Inspired by…

photo 1 (2)After reflecting on the magic of writing last week, and how the extraordinary often lies in the ordinary, I thought I’d share a few things which have inspired my own writing this week.

Said inspiration refers to both writing still locked away in my thoughts for later, and also actual writing written. 🙂photo 3 (1)

My coastal walks with the pup offer a daily source of reflection of course, with the landscapes either inspiring in themselves, or simply allowing the space to think on other things.

But I also picked up the violin again over the weekend, after a fairly long break in playing, and have included this in my reflections this week, for I think music is another great way to step outside of yourself and give the mind free rein to wander and explore new ideas.photo 2 (1)

Music and words – whether we’re playing and writing, or reading and listening – can conjure up a torrent of emotions and ideas if we let them.

We can lose ourselves in both and maybe even make a few discoveries along the way…
