a divine influence directly and immediately exerted upon the mind or soul.
Isn’t inspiration so often visual? That’s why Pinterest is such a success and has spawned such terms as “Pinspiration.” It’s not just a place you go to pin things you enjoy, but to find inspiration for remodeling, craft projects, or dinner. The visuals are what cause our souls to stir, creating that spark inside us, which hopefully fans into a flame (versus sputtering out after three hours of web surfing).
Technically speaking, a “word cloud” is a graphical representation of word frequency. The more often a word is used (for example, as topics on a blog site), the larger it will be in the cloud. It’s a quick visual of word popularity.
The word cloud above represents our favorite things of Christmas here at Diva Connection. Doesn’t it just give you warm fuzzies? The holidays have a tendency to make us forget why we go to all the trouble in the first place, so I posted a little copy on my computer screen to inspire me during the next few weeks.
As the season of Christmas approaches, let’s all try to remember why it is we try so hard, to reach out and ask for a hand if we need it, and to offer one if we can. If you need more inspiration, Diva Connection is a great place to start.
