i still don’t quite know where the idea began or what pushed me over the edge to start a blog. but one day the thought was there.
now, mind you, i have lots of thoughts and crazy ideas. some flit in and out. some linger and fade. some i attempt and they fizzle. some stick around. some persist no matter how often or rationally i talk myself out of them. this thought falls into the latter category.
i really don’t know who would want to know what’s going on in my brain, and i’m not sure anyone will even get what i see in my mind’s eye. but, then again, i’m constantly inspired by the world around me, and that’s a pretty sweet thing to share.
i love to create in any and all forms. i love seeing how simple things – seeds & dirt, a pile of ingredients, pictures & paper – with a touch of our hands grows and is transformed into a meal and a captured memory that we gather to share. [please note: i know exactly how cheeze-ball that sounds. but i’m for real!]
anyway…back to that thought that i couldn’t talk myself out of. my “ultimatum” (with myself, of course) was that i wouldn’t catapult myself into the blogosphere unless i could come up with a good name. and wouldn’t you know…last night…somewhere after midnight on my 30th birthday,’inspired desire’ came to me, and that was that.
i think it has a nice ring to it, and it just sorta feels right. blogging itself is still scary and a bit overwhelming, but at the same time it feels big and new and comfy and exciting…and, yes, a bit ridiculous. i’m hoping “good” ridiculous. we shall see.
