It's been a while since I've done a "Monday Muse" post, but usually they have been about a musician who inspires me. Of course music is not the only thing that inspires me. Gardens and nature do, of course, and people I meet who are expressing themselves creatively. Some of my best inspiration these days comes from the blogs that I read, not always on a daily basis, but as close to it as possible.
For the next few Mondays, I'm going to tell about the blogs on my bloglist: who they are and why they're on my list. I hope you will take that time to visit some of these blogs which inspire me. My list is alphabetic, so there is no preference suggested by the order of my list. I enjoy them all, or they wouldn't be there. That reminds me that I have a few "new discoveries" to add soon.
The first blog on my list is Beyond the Fields We Know. Cate, the author and artist who pens the blog, is inspiring in her connection with and knowledge of nature. I go there to see beautiful photography, and read informative, moving prose, and amazing poetry.
Next on my list is Cedar Chest of Dreams. Robbin is currently resting and recovering, but when she is "up and running" her blog is filled with inspiration, humor and dreamy thoughts. It really is like visiting a friend to bring her blog up on my screen and catch up with her each day. If you're reading this, Robbin, I'm sending prayers and healing thoughts.
Next on my list is Cor Blimey She's a Limey, which currently carries a heading "life at the hovel" in honor of recent renovations at Lesley's cottage in England. She provides a great number of film reviews, as well as glimpses of her garden and her cats. I have known Lesley for many years on line, primarily through homemaking email groups. Many of those old lists have gone "by the wayside" but I have been glad to keep in touch with Lesley through her blog.
