Life Inspiration (Part 2)

I’m continuing this month’s visual journey of inspiration, each week a different theme. Why all the pictures? Sometimes we need to shake up our brains and see how it all settles after the fact and the brink of seasonal change is a good time.

A great motivator for me is curiosity. What might I find just around the bend or over the horizon? How’s the view from the other side of the bridge? Life, even moments in our lives, are a journey. Even reading this post is a journey. What might you find as you scroll down.

I’ll tell you.

You’ll find my fascination with roads, paths, and bridges. What lies beyond? I look at such pictures and they pull me along. If I can’t physically follow, then my imagination does so for me. If you continue just a little further what might you find? What picture might your brush paint? What tale might your thoughts conjure? It’s like the opening notes of a song.

Again, clicking on a picture will bring up a larger version. I hope you enjoy viewing these as much as I enjoyed taking them while traveling what was before me. Let your imagination take the journey. Ask yourself, what happens next?

  2. Beautiful! I have the same fascination… I much prefer loop tracks to those where you follow a trail a certain ways and then have to turn back, because I always need to know what happens next! What’s around the corner, over the next ridge, down the valley?! I’ve taken a lot of long walks that way, having to find out!

    • Absolutely! I know what you mean. Much rather loop than backtrack. That desire, that curiosity, pulls me along and it’s at its most intense when I’m taking pictures. “What shot might I get if I go a little bit farther?” That burning curiosity dragged me to the top of Mt. Sentinel in 2014. Our desire to “know” is a powerful force and it works in stories, too.
