THOUGHTS TO CHEW ON

WHAT INSPIRES US?

Sometimes I wonder how we’re inspired. What sparks a story? A poem? A song? What nudges us to call or write someone? 

Are we somehow tuned-in to the hum of humanity without even knowing it? Seeing and sensing emotions while unaware of what our minds are absorbing? 

And then, when the mind is ready, inspiration ignites. A title...a song hook...a phrase...a letter's first line. And, off we go to create a work to share with someone or with the world.

Who is this Muse? One spirit? Or many? Maybe this wondering doesn’t matter. Maybe it gets in the way of creativity.
