What Inspired You?

This morning I decided to clean some old stuff off of my phone. I started with my notes since these are usually notes that reminded me of something I needed to do or an idea on writing. I came across a note with five questions: What inspired you today? What […]

I was walking on a hill filled with wildflowers.  They were beautiful.  As far as my eyes could see there were flowers of every color. Pink, yellow, purple, it was a sea of colors.  The fragrance flowed through the air. I could hear the whispering of the wind.   I continued to walk breathing […]
