The things that inspire us are often linked to what we label as quirks in our personalities, thing we like that others seem to dismiss. What quirk could you share with your blog readers to see if they really dismiss this or if its something you have in common?
This is going to take some thought, I've never thought about my own quirks.
The first day, when we were asked to take pictures of things around the house that 'inspired' us, I took pictures of the different colors on my walls, and the play of light...I know I like how colors 'play'..that the view of one different colored room opening to another is something I really like. I know I like the look of light, esp as it shines thru colored glass. (that's why I collect glass)
sooooo, what does that say about a quirk? Why would I say those things 'inspire' me?
all I know is that these elements fill me with 'peace'...that I feel comforted by these sights. hmmmmmmmm
Then 2 peas:
what is something about people (in general) that really irritates you?
I dislike dishonesty. I don't know how being dishonest has become so accepted. It is considered 'normal' or 'average' to cheat on tests, on your spouse, your employer, the government. It's so everyday, no one sees it as wrong anymore.
I look at the recent headlines about Madonna and A-Rod, how can we as a society put these people on a pedastal. Speaking of which, as a society, we have the WRONG people on those pedastals. Think about it, really?, entertainers and athletes. Are they really the ones who matter in the big picture? And look at what we teach our children about what is important?
(kinda reminds you of a couple of Bible verses...when Samuel went to annoint David, and the Lord tells him, something like, "I don't measure a man the way the world does"...and how in the NT, the Lord says something about how he will "humble the powerful and lift up the humble")(I'd look them up but I'm a little pressed for time)
