One of my favorite things to do alone or with my kiddo is to go on Inspiration Hunts. This usually involves going on a walk with a camera. Spring is one of my favorite times to do an inspiration hunt. It makes me switch my mind frame from what is going on in my life, to being aware of what is around me.
I get back in touch with nature. I become aware of my environment. I notice things I am often too detached to notice. Yesterday my son and I went on a walk and inspiration hunt. We found various flowers, brilliant bright tulips, a water fountain, a bug sculpture hiding in tall grass, Chinese lamps hanging on a front porch, and we made lots of dandelion wishes. After my walks I always feel relaxed and happy. I sometimes even take pictures. It’s such a great way to change a mindset, get the creative juices flowing, and change the way I am actually seeing things.
Go on your own Inspiration Hunt. What things do you discover that are in your everyday life that you rarely notice?
About Anastacia Drake - Fine Artist
I am from Kansas and I have traveled all over the world. I am an artist, and I have a business brain. I love skirts and tennis shoes. I like to get dirty and ride motorcycles. I am sensitive and I can be mean. I love nature, and believe in protecting it. I love to laugh, and feel better after a good cry. I can be stubborn and impatient. I am constantly growing. I am open and free.
I look to be inspired and love to inspire. I play guitar and secretly want to play drums. I have a puppy that brings me great joy. I love hugs, cuddling, holding hands...and wrestling. I love the mountains and the beach. I have to make a pilgrimage to the ocean at least twice a year to balance myself. I believe in balance in all things. Traveling is a passion, and meeting interesting people from all over the world is the perk! I have small town values, and big city dreams. I love beer, hate wine. I believe that what you put out comes back. I believe and live by the belief of treating others like you want to be treated. I enjoy stimulating conversation, and a good sense of humor. Caffeine is my drug of choice, and coffee over chess or good conversation is my luxury. I am strong but sometimes feel small. I strive to be my authentic me.
