Tales of Quirk and Wonder

Lisa Ahn’s blog, Tales of Quirk and Wonder, is one of my favorite corners of the internet.  Since late last summer, Lisa has been running a fascinating series about inspiration.  I was both startled and hugely honored when she asked me to contribute to her series. I’m so often not inspired, is the thing.  And part of why I love Lisa’s series is that it always triggers a cascade of thoughts, ideas, and reflections in me.

I decided to look for inspiration where I always do.  I went outside, tipped my head up, and gazed.  And then, after a walk, I sat down at my desk.  The muse doesn’t find me unless I sit at my computer, after all.

I believe we are all full of stories.

I believe we are all looking for the way home. To whatever our essential, fundamental home is, where we are truly ourselves, where we are seen and recognized and known and witnessed as such.

I believe that telling our stories – to others, maybe, but most of all to ourselves – is the only way to find our way home….

I’m delighted to be guest posting at Tales of Quirk and Wonder today, writing about what inspires me.  Please click through to read the rest of my piece.

    Lindsey, there is so much beauty in your writing. I’m constantly amazed how you take what so many of us feel every day, and turn it into the true poetry that it is, through your words.

    You may feel like you are at a loss for words sometimes, but as your readers, all we feel is the glory of your end result.

    Thank you for sharing it with those of us who really cherish your words.
