In honor of the spring equinox, I'd love to see what gets you inspired. Or even what gets you out of bed in the morning!

Here, is a picture that sort of represents what I'm looking forward to this spring, this year, (this decade?).

Hope and flowers in the midst of (in front of? ) lots of innovation, learning, construction and community building.



Though I should really post a picture of coffee. Coffee helps me get out of bed! :-)

What about you?

Spring is new life. Turkeys havent hatched yet, but we have new chickens, sheep, and cows.

For me, it is deciding to go ahead and submit an application for a building permit. I realized that in my situation it would be best in the long term to go legit and be able to focus on the building itself, rather than having the paranoia of it being reported. A form of inspiration in the sense that I wont have to waste time, money and energy in hiding it and can make it truly my own design. (and I am lucky enough to live in an area that does not require inspections for buildings that wont be occupied as a residence). It is quite a relief actually!
 
Note to self: don't get into a fist fight with a cactus. Command this tiny ad to do it:
