Inspired Concepts

Seek out the inspired concepts in your ideas

Pull on strands that lead you deeper into wonder

Disregard the naysayers

At least until they you feel they have truly seen

Your vision

Is only yours

And your passion

Is what will see that vision through

to fantastic proportions
