Letter "I"

Usually the best inspirations for writing a post I have before I fall asleep. In fact they make me fall asleep not because they are boring, but instead of counting sheep, I look for inspirations, and suddenly it is morning and time to get up !

So when I got up, still without inspiration, I suddenly realized that inspiration starts with an "I" ! The perfect word for a post. I immediately consulted Madame Wikipedia but she hadn't a lot to say about this word except a few examples such as

Inspiration or inspire may refer to:

Artistic inspiration, sudden creativity in artistic production
Biblical inspiration, the doctrine in Judeo-Christian theology concerned with the divine origin of the Bible
Creative inspiration, sudden creativity when a new invention is created
Inhalation, the movement of air into the lungs, breathing in

but it helped ! I had an inspiration yesterday and this changed my room completely ! The only thing I had to do was taking off the little table on my desk on which I had put the computer screen so that it was on eye level and I didn't have to bent down to see the screen properly. I had this little table for years.

And then the inspiration came how I could get rid of this table on my desk ! I just had to push down the lever on  my desk chair and I would have the correct view right on my screen, without torturing my back on the chair ! As simple as that. Another advantage, I have a perfect view on the street and can watch my neighbors ! Now I ask myself why wasn't I inspired before to have such a practical and easy idea ? It's just as being in a wood and not seeing trees.


and after inspiration

PS. The lamp on my bedside table is not to take a sunbath, but for luminositherapy, it gives you the lack of Vitamin D as we have not enough sunny days. I use it in the short days of winter months.

Amazingly, in Australia people lack Vitamin D, myself included and I take a supplement. I wonder what my D levels are like after four days of 40C+ and hot sun.

Sometimes the obvious is right in front of our faces! Bonus -- your desk looks more spacious! I hope the kitties approve!

How funny, I think of inspiring things too to help me fall asleep.

The light seems like a good idea.
It sure dampens ones spirit to sit in the dark anyway.

I could use some inspiration myself.

Sometimes it's the little things in life that make a huge difference! I know people in our Pacific Northwest who use those lamps in winter... Others of us just move to Florida))))

it looks like you lost a shelf. But at the same time, your table is not as crowded. I usually get my best inspiration in the morning, when I wake up. I usually have to write it down, or I'll forget! {:-Deb

Yes, it's inspiring. I am going to do something about my work desk too. I realise I am facing a wall when I have a sea view. ish.

I am always looking for inspiration and have never found it. Your desk looks very tidy now.

Annesphamily said...

I am inspired! I need to find my desk to remove the clutter! LOL! I should have done it today but watched football instead! You have a nice tidy area to work. I love your furry friend too! Have a great week!

What a wonderful solution! I just got a new, better-for-my-back chair this month. It's one of those fancy adjustable ones too.

This is such an innovative idea...

I am also intrigued with the luminositherapy lamp - Vitamin D is really important!

Thanks for linking to the letter "I".
