Introduction

Hello all,

I started this blog in May 2012 in order to connect with like minded people. People in the arts who, like me have something to say and feel the need to say it. As a visual artist and a writer I like the idea of having an audience, afterall part of the reason I write and produce art is to share the emotions and ideas!

I post when I have an idea, when I have news about my books, and when I feel the need to share others work.

Part of my goal is to get to know more about human nature and to allow people to get to know me. Inspiration Import is and always will be an all inclusive place to be full of honesty and hopefully a bit of wisdom in the mix.

Thanks so much for joining me. Let’s explore together!

Oh, and these are my books! Lest I forget to mention the fact. Click on the cover below to lead to 5 Pillars of the Gypsy, All I Want for Christmas is a Wishmas Tree, Hey Angel!, and Prom Girls-A North American Rite of Passage along with wonderful Reviews for which I am truly grateful.

Humanity i love you because you
are perpetually putting the secret of
life in your pants and forgetting
it’s there and sitting down

    • Happy 1st birthday and lots more too. Really enjoy your blog. I had a 1st birthday not too long ago and I couldn’t believe how fast the year had gone. So many new friends and like-minded ones at that! Congrats and lots more success :)

    • Yes – one year passed so quickly. The people I connected with here on WordPress were my biggest surprise. At first I was posting almost everyday as I was so excited to have a platform for my thoughts and stories and art. It took nine months for me to slow down and stand back a bit from posting! So much fun. Thanks Mariane and Jane for being a part of it all. :)

      • Most welcome. Enjoy your blog a lot. I don’t post all the time. I am doing lots of interviews and guest blogs of late so there is more going on but I try to not go mad.

    • Thank you James. Good of you to come by. I am not sure now how I came across your blog, but I am always interested in new subjects and have now followed Digging History, even though history was my least favourite subject. How things change with age!! :)

      • Yes your right, I also disliked history at school, too! I think it was a lot to do with the teacher I had!
        I would never have guessed I would now be writing about it ha ha!
        Regards James :-)

  4. HI Lesley!

    Thanks for the visit to my blog, I love the concept behind yours. Always great to connect with like-minded people! I have been through an amazing creative journey in the past few years that has taken me from photographer, to published author, and recently designing cushions to raise money for a special needs shelter in Vietnam! I love the flow of life and where it takes us.

    Thanks for the connection beautiful lady!
