What is inspiration? For me – it’s the beauty of sunlight, a blooming flower, a babe’s smile, the wet pavement after a summer rain (can you smell it?), walking down a road, freshly bleached clothing, the sound of the dishwasher, a crisp bright morning, deep meaningful eyes, a hot cup of coffee, belly laughter, windows […]

Sarah Awesome! I too have been shooting the Bradford Pears, love em! Love spring too – to me it is like a rebirth; like all things are possible! Glad this year is going well for you; its hard to make a leap of faith…..March 17, 2010 – 8:28 pm

Marylie Mach This may sound ‘cheezy’ but YOU & your work inspires me. Your passion and your energy. Feeling the power that comes from focusing on what excites you. I wish you the best in your wonderful journey xoxMarch 12, 2010 – 9:02 am

Kristin The small things in life inspire me. The way that light glistens off a spider web. A flower, hanging low with morning dew. Mirror smooth water creating an illusion of an endless Texas sky. The purple velvet of an Iris, unequal by the creations of man.

I have always admired life in small pictures, it wasn’t until I became a special education teacher that my appreciation for it deepened.

Check out my photo blog, I would love to hear your comments.March 11, 2010 – 9:49 pm

Lynn I LOVE love love this post Arden!! It’s such a blessing to be alive in this time. I had a pretty crummy shift last night, and I walked out of the hospital at 6am just as the sun was about to rise. As I walking to the parking lot, I was just STRUCK by these beautiful flowering trees by the lot. I felt so happy in that moment to see them. I whipped out my iphone to take a pic, and a gentleman walked by, and said “The Bradford pears are out! Enjoy them now because they will only last a week”. So funny, that I first about “Bradford pears” twice in one day! Have a great weekend!March 11, 2010 – 9:32 pm
