Web Authors Who Inspire Me XIII

As soon as I realized I had to leave my home and go out into the world with nothing but my body and what was on it right then, a funny thing happened. I was free in a way that I’d never been before.

Author Mom with Dogs

Here are a couple of my favorite posts I read this week.

  • Karen Shanley of Author Mom with Dogs demonstrates beautiful story telling abilities in her post, The Steering Wheel, where she chronicles a conversation she had with her daughter about surviving a house fire, loosing everything she owned and the lessons she learned. Today’s quote is taken from this post.
  • Here’s another video for you. I found this one in Sleeping Dude’s post, Get a Pet!, at How To Wake Up Early. I wasn’t necessarily inspired by this one, but as a cat owner myself, it made me laugh a lot.

About the author


I am Danny Kohn, writer and designer for this site and owner, software engineer and consultant for Inspirations Software Design. My three greatest passions in life are sharing time with my family, software design and sharing inspiration with others. I have the incredible privilege of being able to spend a significant amount of time every day doing each of those three things. I am a single father of Tristen, our 6 year old son. It has been such an incredible joy to watch him grow up and learn so much. Everything he does and says overwhelms me with adoration. We have a wonderful evening ritual of reading books together in a beanbag chair. Nearly every night, we have a laughing attack together. I smile and giggle constantly in his presence and feel truly inspired.
