Everyone has slumps. Everyone has their ups and downs. The higher our spirits soar the bigger our dreams and ideas.
Over the years I have been fortunate enough to realise that a well phrased anecdote or quote can have a surprisingly positive effect on my perspective, which in turn lifts my spirits.
This little site is where I collect some of these spirit-lifters, as well as those passed in to me. Alongside the right visuals, these can serve as a quick pick-me-up and I hope they can do the same for you too.
This site is built with a static site generator called Eleventy.
The code is managed on GitHub and uses webhooks to auto-deploy to Netlify.
Image management, manipulation, optimisation and delivery is by Cloudinary
Fonts are from Google Fonts: Cabin and Cormorant Upright
Each of these platforms and services offers Free Tiers and lots of people kindly share their tutorials and how-to's online which means that however old or young you are, if there is a project you would like to try to make, it is Distincly Doable.
