Today's inspiration

These are the words that have inspired me today.

"Because it was such a very small class, they had a very small classroom, which was perched right at the top of the school. Up four flights of stairs, way up in the sky, like a colony of little birds nesting on a cliff, blown about by wind with the high, airy sounds of the city coming up the hill in the ocean breeze."

Page 6, The Golden Day, by Ursula Dubosarsky. (Allen and Unwin.)

Beautiful, eh?


  1. Thanks Sue. Now I know what to get Ursula to talk about at our festival. She's a very hard writer to pigeonhole but she creates such beautiful imagery.

  2. She certainly does. Great that Ursula will be at the festival!
