Share your inspiring place

July 9, 2009

Many of us have a place–or maybe more than one–that brings us peace, joy, solace and calm. Many of us have a place that excites, inspires, challenges or restores us. Many of us have places we find spectacular, beautiful, energetic, fun.

For me, it’s typically wide, open spaces. A view that includes mountains, wildflowers and evergreens, instead of skyscrapers, traffic lights and city buses. But I don’t myself in that situation very often, living in Indiana. Here, some of my best ideas come while walking on an Indy Parks Trail, or riding my bike. But for you, maybe it’s a special place in your home, or your favorite coffee shop.

As part of the 2009 Spirit & Place Festival, WFYI invites you to share them with everyone! Go here to upload your photo. WFYI will select six submissions and turn those into a “Spirited Chase” on Saturday, Nov. 7, as part of the opening weekend of the Spirit & Place Festival.

And, if you’ve got the words, but not the picture, feel free to share it with us, here.
