Ten Pieces of Inspiration #93

Share Button

Each week, I highlight ten things each week that inspired me to greater financial, personal, and professional success. Hopefully, they will inspire you as well.

Consider this an autumn edition. I spent much of the week collecting pictures of fall colors for a display project. Many of them were absolutely beautiful, so I decided to share the top ten with you.

Mixed in with these pictures is the poem “To Autumn” by William Blake

Till clust’ring Summer breaks forth into singing,
And feather’d clouds strew flowers round her head.

The spirits of the air live in the smells
Of fruit; and Joy, with pinions light, roves round

The gardens, or sits singing in the trees.”
Thus sang the jolly Autumn as he sat

Then rose, girded himself, and o’er the bleak
Hills fled from our sight; but left his golden load.
