MUSINGSAt the end of last year I was reading something some where, they were asking what your favourite inspirational quote was.
I looked at it blankly and felt quite grumpy.
I'm not one for that kind of thing, but have a vague feeling that maybe I should.
Maybe it's a failing on my part that I don't have an inspiring mantra to ponder upon.
But then I throw it all up in the air realising its all a load of hippy crap and I've been happy without an inspiring quote for over 40 years. I'll probably be happy without one for another 40.
I then continued on my rambling page hopping way forging a weavey way through the internet. When the next place I alighted and I can remember where it was, it was on the Guardian's website. No idea what the article was about though, had this quote on it.
They attributed it to Julia Margaret Cameron, though on further investigation it would appear its something a lot of people have said over a long period of time.
But I think it was her name that grabbed me, I find her quite fascinating.
Somehow it was exactly what I needed to hear at exactly the right time.
So I decided to record it and keep it so I can remember.
So now I have one, an inspiring quote.
One that spoke to me and helped me make some decisions.
Helped clear up the direction I need to go in.
It is quite handy to have this inspiring quote thing. I repeat it to my self when I get confused or the fear about what I want to do.
May be some of this hippy crap has something to it, not all of it though, I'm not going to start wearing crystals and patchouli oil.
