Inspiration, can come from anywhere. We see a great many things all around us that can inspire us to great heights. We can form new ideas, and build dreams, from the things, places and people that inspire us. I myself see great examples of inspiration in the people I love. In fact, a great many of my stories include people that I love. I recently came up with the Elementals Saga idea, and I would like to share my inspiration with you.
This little boy and the many like him is my inspiration for this story. This is my nephew Grayson. He is beautiful and special. he can make you laugh, and make you cry with his unconditional love and innocent view of the world. He also lives with autism. Every day for him and his family is wrought with challenges, and yet they know they are all the better for it.
I heard someone once say “I know someone that suffers from Autism.” Suffers is not the right word. He does not suffer, he lives! Everything in his life is special and important. Looking into his eyes, and seeing his honest smile, and knowing his capacity for unconditional love, all I can see is another of God’s perfect creations. Thanks for being not only my inspiration, but an inspiration for others too.
