Emptiness Antidote: Friday Five

Today's prompt from the RevGals is this: What do you do when you feel empty of all creativity and unable to make/do anything? This is a completely open question, the only rule is name 5 things that fill/ inspire you.

I read. A lot. I love to read poetry to fill my cup (Dickinson, Oliver, Berry and more). I love to read blogs(A Church for Starving Artists and Marge's Next Meal come to mind).I love to read magazines (this one and this one and this one are some of my favorites.

I am energized by walking.

I am energized by a cup of tea with good friends and colleagues.

My creativity is sparked by being with others.

I am energized by listening to or being directed to videos of my second born child's musical interests. A person of eclectic musical taste, SBC inspires me all the time, without even meaning to!

We have a lot of walkers!

:-) more walking, and I like the addition of tea!

Tea--what a good idea. It's actually feeling cold here in south TX (I know 60 degrees is not cold anywhere else!) so I need to drink some tea.

Books, you and me both. And thanks for the blog recommendations. I will have to go and see.
