Where I find my Inspiration

There are times when I get down, lose my energy and inspiration.  We all do.  I look around and often find inspiration in unusual places.  This week, I found it in my young grand-nephew Tyson.  He and his family took their first-ever airplane ride to Texas.  He and his brother Eli learned among other things that yes, tumbleweeds are real and  – oh by the way, they have thorns.  I learned something from young Tyson, too.

This first picture is my favorite actually.  He’s aboard the Skylink tram at DFW airport, on the way home, sporting his new cowboy boots and hat and you can SEE him sizing up that pole. That large figure on the left is Dad, who is clearly within range to stop what’s about to happen here.

But what will happen?  Will Tyson attack the pole?  Will Dad reach out and grab that little shoulder and stop him?

And, he’s OFF!  His Mom said he got pretty far up, too.  These photos made me smile and reminded me of several things.  First:  Go for it – take a leap. Because why not?  Second:  Live a little.  And Third:  Have some fun. Be a little weird.  So thanks Tyson for reminding your old aunt to enjoy life a little more.  Keep climbing, kiddo! *

And for my  traveling friends and colleagues:  Admit it – we’ve all wanted to do this.

*Disclaimer: Stunt performed by an untrained kid on an open course.  DO try this at home.  Have medics standing by.  No poles or children were harmed in the making of these pictures.  Use only as directed. Your mileage may vary. Pictures by Mom who was clearly laughing her butt off.
