Life’s Inspirations

Some time ago I conducted a project during which I asked visitors to my site to tell me what inspires them—things they consider “natural highs.” As a result of this effort, I’ve collected more than two thousand statements, which I am happy to present here.

So as not to overwhelm you, I’ve configured this page to display several such statements at random. You can see a new set by reloading the page.

  • Making the winning score.
  • Being best friends with your brothers and sisters.
  • Riding the Mindway to Nirvana.
  • When she says “I love you too”.
  • Waltzing on the main square of Prague in a pouring summer rain.
  • Bubbles and icecream on a sunny afternoon.
  • Baby deer playing in a field with each other.
  • Redefining “Love” each new day-after 12 years of marriage.
  • Finding a little romantic bed and breakfast in the country.
  • Getting mail from overseas.
  • Waking up from a deep sleep after a bout with the flu — and feeling clear-headed again.
  • Using candles instead of electric lights.
  • Having a roommate who you share a personality with, who will cheer you up when you are sad, and who you love unconditionally, even though she leaves the closet messy.
  • Feeling the wind rush through your hair and not caring if you hair is messed up in a red jeep.
