To Look, to receive knowledge by direct perception
                                                       To behold

Laundry Day
             Something big was coming.
 She felt it in the way the wind batted at her ankles, at the way the very blades of grass perked up by the approaching storm.  This would be no ordinary storm.  She needed to get home fast.  Something would be waiting for her.
                                                                                     Something Good.

Mother and baby bunny

 Even though they were poor, home was full of plenty.  It was overwhelming in its lavishness, its opulence.  Love spilled out of the door and lit up the dark forest outside.

                Overflowing state or condition.
                                                           More than enough.

Whimsy a capricious notion or fancy.

                          Deviation from the ordinary.   
Dainty Mice

"But why?"  asked Miriam, "why did all the mice get up and start dancing all at once?  There is no rhyme or reason!"
The professor stroked his chin thoughtfully, "It must have been a whim, a flight of fancy."
"Madness," muttered Miriam.

           a sudden turn  of the mind without apparent motive.            
Floating on air

Rosalind had always been the most sensible of all the geese.   But that day the villagers remarked that she had been seen floating on air for no less than two hours.

I love the word

It is the breath of life.
It is what quickens our heart.

Does inspiration come from without or from within?
When we have an idea it is as if we took a breath.  It is drawn inside us and nourishes us. Engaging the senses is the best way to gain inspiration. 

Look at something beautiful. Viewing the masters at an art museum can make you want to run home and paint.

I drew these bunnies after I saw a bunny with his paws
to his mouth. It struck me that he looked as if he had a
secret to share.  
                    Listen to the rhythm of your foot steps as you walk.
