“You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.”
― Jack London
Be very very quiet. I am hunting inspiration. I listen to friends speak and sometimes in the odd moment they say something that sets thoughts cascading and I write or draw or find insight into something that’s been puzzling me for years.Occasionally I find inspiration in the words to songs that I had forgotten or in a melody that reaches inside of me and pulls on a thread that I have long let lie. I often become inspired by dreams or by meditation, the quiet moments walking the dog or doing laundry where the mind finds the exact answer it has been looking for. Still sometimes none of those things work and I call on my muse only to hear no reply. Her messages have been forwarded and her mailbox is full. In those times, I need to actively seek it myself and go hunting for the words and images I momentarily lack.
