my first cup of tea and a good night's sleep, which eluded me last night...

a long day of painting after a morning walk with my camera as the sun shines through fingers of fog...

a long warm bath, a candle and the perfect quiet of an empty house for just a little while ;)

gratitude to you for making me think!

Pom Pom,

Your "unique people" are probably similar to my vibrant people. :)

I love the smell of coffee too, adore juvenile fiction, and believe in the power of prayer.

I certainly am inspired by writers of many "stripes" but am curious about your "agressively thoughtful" variety. Can you give me an example?

Thanks for sharing your inspirations!

I usually start the morning with coffee, but then switch to tea... so I completely understand. I am refueled by a goodnights sleep too. I'm sorry you didn't get a good rest last night. ugh.

Your day of painting sounds idyllic. For me, that would be writing (in some moods) or just working in the garden. :)

Oh the quiet house... You can't imagine how blissful that sounds to me. If everyone is gone for too long, I start to miss them... but a quiet house for a few hours is restorative!

My thanks to you too, for such thoughtful responses!
