Sometimes it is just a good cup of coffee (or tea) ….

Yes, it is another grey day in Toronto — but it did not seem so grey as I was walking to work and remembering my trip around the Horn.  People question why I travel — and it is for things like that.  The memories of the adventures, the things you see and the people you meet. 

And sometimes it is just the smell of a good cup of coffee (or tea) that can inspire you to write.  Today, I will write a longer post about what it was like for me to “round the Horn” and why it was so important. And yes, this time I will include the pictures in the post!

Actually, it may be a cup of hot chocolate today — in remembrance of the cup of hot chocolate I had as I was snapping pictures of a lighthouse at the end of the world! Everything feels brighter already!

Finding inspiration on a grey day …

It’s a grey day.  At 9:30 AM, there is no sun — only clouds. No rain, no snow, nothing to soften the greyness that surrounds the buildings and threads its way down narrow streets.  It is just a grey day.  Then I look at what I am wearing: grey shirt, grey pants, even grey boots. The only thing that brightens my look are the red-framed glasses I am wearing.  How does one find inspiration on a grey day?

Yes, I am looking for suggestions on this one.  How do we keep from rolling into the fog that appears to engulf everything in its path?
