Silly Saturday Photos: Penguins, Camels and Adam Lambert

Yay for the weekend!
And Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers!

I hope you all had a wonderful week! I think mine was good. Quite honestly, it was a whirlwind and between my kids' end of school things and the state of politics, it was over before I knew it. Which is probably a good thing, but it means most of my writing was done in my head and not much on paper.

Let's see some photos... (Found on

I looked it up. It's true penguins were nicknamed "arse-feet" in the 1800's!

For some reason it reminds me of Patrick Stewart?

Last night I had a dream I was riding a camel, and forgot until I saw this picture.
It was a weird dream.

Well, I think that's it for funny photos. Despite getting distracted by watching Adam Lambert videos on YouTube, this post is still taking way longer than it should to pull together. I have scrolled through lots of funny photos and I'm ready to call it for the week.

The thing about Adam Lambert is he is creatively inspirational to me. I can listen to any song - not just the ones I have on my Through the Fairy Ring playlist - and I get that itchy-to-create feeling. I'm not sure if it's the music or his talent for entertaining that makes me want to explore my own creativity. The persona he puts out to the public is unafraid and unapologetic. His music helps me to remember to be brave and overcome the fear of creative rejection. Here are some quotes from him that I like:

"I started rejecting the proper way to sing and I started singing."

"There's not a blueprint for me to follow."

"I think the more we as artists share ourselves openly, the more someone out there may feel inspired to do the same." (Flaunt Magazine, 2016)

So, yeah! Thanks Adam Lambert, for being an artistic emotional support!

Here's one of the songs that I attribute to Arden's character arc in TTFR. It's called Runnin' and is from the album Trespassing. It's not a video, just the music.

And with that, I'll call it a week!

Do you have an artistic emotional support system? What do you find motivates you to create?


  1. What a fun fact about penguins! I love the little critters. Camels, too -- but they spit! Happy Mother's Day!!

    1. Hey! I was just thinking about you this week! Thank you so much for stopping by and saying hello. Penguins are cute, aren't they? I had no idea they were ever called arse-feet, though. Somewhat fitting, I suppose, but still. :)

  2. I guess that was a walrus in #2 scratching his head. Anyway, I thought it was the funniest.

    Happy Mother's Day, Lara.

    1. I'm not sure what that is, but it sure is cute. Thanks, David!

  3. Music is inspiring too. I've got certain songs that I supposed have a lot of emotion, and they put me int he mood to write--to be creative. I don't have specific artists though, it's more or less random songs.

    I hope you had a good mother's day!

    1. I hope you had a happy Mother's Day, too. Mine was good, thank you. Very relaxing and happy. :D
