Four Posts That Inspired Me Today

Thought I’d share four posts that helped kick-start my day:

Dr. Andrea Dinardo’s blog Thriving Under Pressure offers inspiration for daily living.  Today’s post asks the question:  Are you left brain or right brain dominant?  Take a quiz to determine where you stand, and watch an inspiring video by Jill Bolte Taylor on the subject.  (I scored a 14, which means only 6% of the population is more right brain than me.  Guess those off-hand comments about me being a hippy might actually hold some ground.)

Charlie Hasler is a recent addition to the blogs that I follow.  In his blog, Charlie Says, he demonstrates insight and compassion, as well as a knack for turning a phrase.  His poem, Softer Seeds, struck a chord with me today as it explores his relationship with his father.

Elan Mudrow is a favourite of mine.  Her poems intermingle the ordinary with the absurd, as witnessed in today’s post:  Olympic Peninsula Beach – How to Miss a Highway.

Bjorn Rudberg, another poet who seldom disappoints, today answers the question of why he writes with his post:  I Metaphor Much More. 

There is so much inspiration to be found in the blogverse – these are just four that touched my day.  Hope you enjoy.
