A few months ago, I went to visit a friend in Eugene, Oregon. She lives on the outskirts of the city on a quiet street. It was Sunday morning when I decided that I needed a little exercise and took a long walk. I couldn’t help admire and take pictures of the creations of one of her neighbors. No, it didn’t inspire me to work with scrap metal or to start welding. It did motivate me to use my creativity in ways that are comfortable for me- writing, cooking and gardening.
