Here are some of the things that are inspiring me this week. Some of the MANY things…after last week I was convinced that the Internet would offer up no more treasures. WHOOOOO BOY was I wrong!
Let’s get started!
First of all, I am falling in love with Vivienne McMaster’s amazingness.
She creates beautiful photo collages and has an e-course all about self-portraiture. If you click the photo you’ll go to her first post on the incredible website Roots of She. And here’s another kickass post on her own site: The Dangers of Self-Portraiture
Next, I am loving The Caffeinated Elf. I love the name. I love the philosophy. And I LOVE LOVE LOVE this article. LOVE. Plus, she’s totally adorable.
Speaking of adorable people, The Bloggess is quite possibly my favourite…bloggess…of all time. I read this article and actually LOLed. Really:
I’d also want him to shoot me in the face for the good of humanity. It’s not *all* vanity, people. (a post about zombies and werewolves…and photoshop)
This was a big week for my friend Andrea! Just after revamping her amazing website at www.abccreativity.com, she has launched www.creativedreamincubator.com, a website devoted to growing your creative dreams and bringing them to life! As you know, I’m in the first session of Andrea’s Creative Dream Incubator e-course. If you have creative dreams you want to make real, I highly recommend this site (and the course).
Here’s a story that I LOVE: Never Underestimate A Pregnant Woman. Seriously, if/when I’m pregnant again, can I please be this kickass? Please? With Xander, I stopped dancing after my second trimester. Oof.
Here’s an absolutely amazing post by Jen Lemen. I met Jen through The Beckoning of Lovely when Xander was just a tiny one, but this is the first time I’ve checked out her blog. I LOVE IT. I will be going back again and again. There’s so much beauty there!
And, to continue the beauty, here is Your Other Name, the latest poem by the lovely Tara Sophia Mohr. I found her site in December when I was working on my Goddess Year workbook. I loved her gentle approach to goal setting (I’ve mentioned it before, but her Goals Guide is wonderful for people who get completely stressed out by typical “goal setting” approaches). This year Tara began including her poetry on her blog, and I am so glad she did. This is my favourite so far.
OK. Now go and get some Kleenex. Seriously.
Got it? All right. Check out this link.
Told you you’d need Kleenex. How beautiful and brave and amazing is that woman? Wow.
OK…two more things. Not a lot that can top those photos. But I always like to include some dance in my Inspiration Tuesday posts. This week I have two videos to share.
Here is a video from the amazing Nederlands Dans Theatre, which is touring the US right now (you lucky bastards). This show looks completely amazing.
And, finally, a stunningly serene montage of rehearsal footage from Pacific Northwest Ballet. It gives me chills.
And that’s it for this week! Have a great one!
