Share Your World: Inspired by Nature

Many of us find inspiration in Nature.

Singapore may be a city, but there are many wonderfully green places for pedestrians to wander about, mull over life’s mysteries and be inspired.  I love exploring the Park Connector network when I have the chance; these dedicated walkways/cycle paths run between parks to allow one to park hop,  providing safe passage for pedestrians & cyclists.  The Alexander Canal Linear Park is a beautiful and particularly lovely example, running alongside several housing developments.

In the spirit of sharing my world, here are my answers to Cee’s Share Your World for this week.

If you were given the opportunity to ride in a helicopter would you go?

Erhmmmm, NO!  Motion sickness!

What are some of your favorite type of proteins to eat? (meat, seafood, eggs, soy, cheese, nuts)

Eggs, in all forms!   Cheese is a close second, also in all forms.

What would be your preference, awake before dawn, at dawn, or awake before noon?

Dawn; although most mornings I have to be up pre-dawn.  My brain is mostly asleep till later in the morning anyway.

What inspired you this past week?  

I was having a conversation with Irene at Heaven’s Sunshine about a lovely butterfly photograph she had taken, so when I had an opportunity to visit a butterfly enclosure myself several days ago, I jumped at the opportunity.

Although very small, there were enough lovely specimens of butterflies for me to gawk in awe and be inspired to quill my first project. Again, Nature was my muse! Daughters and I have started quilling as a new craft interest.  We borrowed several books from the library to get us going; my favourite one was Jane Jenkin’s Quilling: Techniques & Inspiration, from which the idea and instructions for these butterflies came.  Jane can also be found at janejenkinsquilling
