Welcome to my blog, thank you for stopping by. If this is your first time to my blog, it's nice to meet you. If you've been here before, welcome back.

My writing journey has begun. The road will have some bumps and detours. I only hope that the first hill is not too high, and the journey is long.

Some Inspiration For The Week Ahead

The imagination exercises a powerful influence over every act of sense, thought, reason,
-- over every idea.
Latin Proverb

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.
Louisa May Alcott

Imagination is more important than knowledge.
Albert Einstein

We are all inventors, each sailing out on a voyage of discovery, guided each by a private chart, of which there is no duplicate. The world is all gates, all opportunities.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Seek the lofty by reading, hearing and seeing great work at some moment every day.
Thornton Wilder

Life is like a cup of tea, it’s all in how you make it!
Irish Proverb

I hope you all have a wonderful week!

The last couple weeks, I have started them off right by stopping by. Thank you so much for the inspiration!

I love days when you post these quotes. I love quotes. LOVE THEM! Today I am especially fond of the "cup of tea" quote. :)

I love that Einstein said imagination is more important than knowledge. We wouldn't fiction without imagination!

I really like this post Maeve -- I'm reading it before I go to bed, but it would be more meaningful for me to grasp something to ponder in the morning. Will have to watch for it. I use a special piece of inspiration to ponder and use before I meditate. I like both Wilder's and Einstein's quotes. Wilder's reminds me of seedthought I frequently use in meditation: "Inspiration and Imagination are wings for Soul power." Please keep sharing!

I love the Emerson quote.
