Salvation through Inspiration

Water Droplets on Reed

I try to live a life full of adventures (you might take a peek at some of them here), but not every day can be spent floating above the earth in hot air balloons, hiking to waterfalls, or exploring caverns. The menial tasks and obligations that occupy the majority of my waking hours are necessary but not always easy to endure. In coping with the less enthralling aspects of life, I’ve found that there is often significance in the seemingly mundane, beauty in what first appears banal, and art just about everywhere. And knowing that makes living a lot more pleasant. Gleaning inspiration from the trivial events or daily activities that permeate modern life may seem like a naive and overzealous attempt at deriving meaning from a chaotic universe, but you’ll never know what is out there until you look very, very closely.

    • Thanks, Brenda. Your book reviews are very thorough and well-written. I found your review of Lost City Radio particularly intriguing; I think I’ll have to pick that one up sometime. I’ll be checking out your blog for more good reads!

  4. I can relate to your sentiments here – very much so. Observation is what keeps a writer sane – often times the larger scenes in life, later make us wonder what we missed in detail.
