Whence comes Inspiration…

Inspiration comes…

From Happiness.
From Misery.
From Anger.
From Despair.

From Love.
From Longing.
From Loneliness.
From Being in a Crowd.

From Disappointment.
From Agony.
From Ecstasy.
From Emptiness.

From Just About Anything.
It just lurks around, hoping to catch your eye.
You just need to keep your eyes, ears and nose open.

And once you spot it, don’t let it get out of sight…
Scribble it, draw it, paint it, sing it, hold on to it!

    Yes, it is everywhere and nowhere depending upon the perceiver. Be open and broad and let the breeze sweep pass your entire perceptive organs. And instantly transform it into words or portray it on a tapestry or sing it as a lulaby or a beautiful lyric.

    Dear Jean,

    Yes, without any sort of inspiration, there is no charm in life…. Inspiration and awaiting something positive are complimentary to each other, I have learned!

    Honestly, let me tell you, your blog, especially about "Tales from the Garden City" has inspired me to the core. Will write to you later, once you DM your email ID.

    Best of Luck,

    i say don't hold on to it – let it flow into your creative work and release it…

    such is the role of the artist.
