Lots of things inspire me.

Visiting the Smithsonian inspires me to learn. Photo
Witnessing the raw power of Mother Nature inspires me to respect. Photo
Listening to one of my favorite bands in a small venue with a ridiculous sound system inspires me pay greater attention to the small things . Video

On September 25, 2010 at 8:27 am Kalina Louise Racheva was introduced to the world. She has a full head of dark hair, a humbling dimple in her right cheek, long thin fingers (and toes) that will be perfect for the piano, and spirited vocal cords.
I’m amazed and proud and thrilled and excited and nervous and…inspired!
