I am lecturing at Ladew Gardens outside of Baltimore on Thursday, and for those who can and can’t make it, I am giving a sneak peek at what I am talking about. (Click the image for details.)The title of the lecture is “A Quest for Inspiring Design” and each and every day, I do have a quest – it’s usually around 11:00 p.m. when I go to start writing the blog! Although, really, it’s what I am doing every day – looking for things that inspire me.The lecture will be a walk though the people, places and professions that I find inspirational. It’s been fascinating exploring this subject internally in preparation for the lecture. I had to think about how I come up with the inspiration for the blog, as well as for the other aspects of my life. Obviously, my time living abroad provided me with a lot of inspiration, but my life here in Baltimore does, as well.I hope that you will be able to join me at Ladew on Thursday. It’s going to be a lot of fun!
