When You Don’t Feel Inspired

Do you ever feel like disguising yourself and crawling out of your usual habitat?

Do you ever feel like disguising yourself and crawling out of your usual habitat?

I confess.  It’s been a rough month. Between surgery, kidney failure, traveling, spending 12 days working at a booth in a crowded convention hall and using all of my supply of extrovertedness (probably for the entire year), I don’t feel very inspired this Monday.

I’ve scarcely looked at my blog in three weeks, and as another Monday approaches, all I have energy to do is throw up some photos of how I’m filling myself up with peace and quiet to make up for the hustle and bustle and plans-gone-awry that have made up my summer so far (only two more weeks of vacation until I report back to work for another school year).

I find comfort and peace wandering around with my camera tucked under one arm and my binoculars tucked under the other.  I know that I’ll see something beautiful–a gift from my Creator–if I just get outside and start looking.

And so I look to you, dear friends, for further inspiration. I’ll have a lot of reading to do once I escape the heat and humidity of south Texas (I’ll suffer through heat and humidity for new birds, though 🙂 ) and return home at the end of the week. Thank you for hanging in there with me throughout this crazy summer.
