In Search of Inspiration

DSC00058In search of inspiration...

towerhill surrendinger to creativity

DSC00058There amongst the flowers and the wonder of nature was a little girl with her sketch book and pencil. She knelt beneath the flowers that she captured on her little sketch pad. She snuggled so closely to the flower that it cascaded onto her book, letting her trace it's very shadow, She had already learned the way to embrace inspiration was to simply surrender to creativity.

DSC00058Sometimes seeing a child embracing what I struggle with, reminds me to just be.

DSC00058 I think that God led me to this little dove to remind me to stop searching for spirit outside, but to embrace the child within.
