It was thought that the gods blew on creative people, who would then inhale the god's breath and have an idea. This is the premise of "inspiration": inhaling divine breath and ideas.

Illustrations of life...

Carry on Tuesday 37

This week our prompt is a quote from the 18th century artist Sir Joshua Reynolds

A room hung with pictures is a room hung with thoughts.

Use all or part of it within your poem or prose, and then leave the url of your post with Mister Linky and a comment

I strongly believe that a picture speaks more than words do.There are a few pictures I instantly fall in love with... There are some which take sometime to make an impression on me. There are pictures which inspire me, some which lighten my mood, a few that have a radiating peace embedded. Some pictures I hang on my wall, mostly my wedding photos, close family. Some of these pictures are my wall papers...Some pictures are so deeply seated in my mind that I don't need one for external display!

Divine love!

Very long ago, the National Geographic Channel had published on it's magazine cover the photo of an Afghan girl. No one knew her name then, but the picture moved the hearts of millions who came forward to help the people of Afghanisthan. And when you look at that picture, her eyes reflect the grief of her people!

My all time favorite wall paper... I couldn't stop myself from mentioning this one. Baby photos!
