what inspires you?

Raphael Saadiq with Rob Bacon - NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

Real real real music that makes me want to dance always. And maybe swoon a little too.

The Rules by Corita Kent

After the holiday rush I feel like my creativity just disappeared. With so much to do and figure out, I have handfuls of lame excuses. I feel like I'm always trying to "figure out" my life. There's too much to do. I need to clear my space and my head and get to crafting! What do you do when you feel overwhelmed with things that aren't what you want to be doing?

careers I wouldn't mind having (list 3 of 52)

My twirling, shot by the ever so talented Ryan 
What I'd like to be when I grow up, a list:

1. Dancer, à la Pilobolus.

2. Physical therapist. How fun would it be to stretch out  Nenê pre-grame?

3. Archeologist, more discovering, less statistics please.

4. Tree-Climbing Scientist, ever since I saw a picture of someone doing something like this in a National Geographic when I was 8.

5. Designer/Stylist/Image Consultant. Ah, picking out outfits and dressing people all day, yes!

6. Owner of a cafe/shop. Maple bacon peanut butter pancakes and homemade goodies anyone? Time to be creative and do things I love all day? Wait, that's a mom isn't it?

7. Forensic Psychologist/Examiner ish? The mystery, the intrigue! oh and the law! I might be romanticizing this...

I'm not one for resolutions. Mostly because I can't keep a routine. But I like projects. So, this 2011 I am attempting 52 lists. One list per week for a year. I see it as a good way to actually make me sit still for even if just 5 minutes and write. Regularly. And I'm kind of interested to see what happens when I run out of ideas. 
I've always wanted to do 52projects but it seems a bit much for this already busy year. Something like seemed much more fitting. So with inspiration from other list-lovers and listography, here I go!
