About the Book

By Inspiration can be compared to my journey through life. Departure began at birth on March 15, 1948 on Jack Craig’s Place in a little shack surrounded by a cotton field, located across the pass at the end of a little dusty road. I was the tenth child born to William J. and Callie Donnie Davis Robinson. Life has taken me on an expressway with many exits, detours, and points of construction. By Inspiration is a compilation that reflects a shallow view of life experiences at different intervals through expressions in creative writings and visual art. In it, a myriad of emotions of love, joy, sorrow, gratitude, disappointment, and disgust are evident. By Inspiration gives the reader and viewer a glance at my interpretation of how life experiences can influence and impact the mind’s eye’s reality. “But we know that all things work together for good to them who love God to them who are called according to his purpose” (Romans).
