Sometimes, when it seems that I am completely out of inspiration, something falls into my lap. This time it was a quote a friend sent me.
"Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I cannot reach them: but I can look up, and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead ..." Louisa May Alcott
Louisa May Alcott has long been a favorite author of mine. This quote reminds me why I am always moved by her words.
What are your aspirations? Do you dream of writing words that touch others, as I do? Or do you dream of painting a beautiful picture or composing a haunting melody? Whatever your aspirations, I hope you keep them close to your heart, so that you are reminded of them with each beat. For where would we be without our dreams, our hopes, our reach-for-the-stars wonderments?
Joy for today: dreaming, hoping, reaching for the stars.
