Inspiration comes in many forms.
When time and our family budget allows it, I enjoy getting out of Austin to recharge. I find that if I change my environment, I am often able to change my perspective. Sometimes it’s an adventurous trip, and other times it’s all about being pampered in a beautiful locale. Either way, I enjoy shaking up my routine and giving my mind time to wander. Travel is the perfect solution. I usually come home invigorated and with a notebook full of new ideas.
As an attorney representing the public school districts of Texas for over 17 years, I got a lot of windshield time to experience Texas’ wide open spaces. There’s much to love about the diversity in our geography, culture, and food.
Sometimes I feel the need to venture further afield, to immerse myself in the colors, sounds, and tastes of another country. Mexico is always a favorite, but all in all I’ve seen over ten countries. Somehow the list of places I want to visit grows longer each year.
