The only definition of "Inspiration" I found in a dictionary : "stimulation or arousal of the mind, feelings, etc, to special or unusual activity or creativity"

Sometimes before I write a post for Alphabet Thursday, I have a lack of inspiration. Of course it depends on the letter, for  XYZ  it is not so easy  to be inspired. Usually I look around me, I listen to people I watch them, and then suddenly comes the inspiration ! That's the same for my paintings, but it is easier, I just have to look at some pictures and then at least the penny dropped !

Sometimes Mr. G. inspires me, when he lays on the sofa or he does long naps or just hangs around. Then I could write a post about lazy people but that starts with L or retired people and that starts with "R". So nothing for "I".

The fact that we were without electricity and wandered around with torches and lighted candles and I chatted with the neighbors on our mobiles because the telephone didn't work, would fit on a theme about electricity breakdowns, but this again is better for E.

It also had snowed and the world around me became suddenly white. Again a good subject for S or for W which stands for Winter. That makes me think that I could write about ice, but what ? Nobody broke its neck or legs so far and nobody does ice skating they are all too old, I mean my neighbors.

This picture could also inspire me to write about very bad fashion tastes, or insane women, or about those who fool  the world and make money out of it. The only practical thing with this bikini is that she can hang her wet bikini on the machine guns to dry.

Wasn't I inspired today ?

I'll do the same next time !

Good idea for creating a consultant office !

In our home it's rather the other way around !

The machine gun bra looks like something straight out of a bad movie.

I love all the different ideas you ran by us. That bikini is certainly Interesting if nothing else!

Linens and Royals said...

I am sure you would never lack inspiration. My ideas are a bit like the second cartoon. They come and then they go, never staying long enough for me to use them.

I wish my husband would get inspired to clean his office and his side of the bed too. lol

I also look around for things to write about. I've done series, like when I only wrote about my trip to Italy (an I)! But now I'm "stuck" with anything that happens to come to me. So I have a list on my computer screen (HottNotes - they're great!) and I'll write something down for later... {:-Deb

Those are some...ummm...interesting bikinis.


If I had that bod I wouldn't distract from it in anyway.

Thanks for a fun and intriquing link for this weeks letter "I".
