When I see others creating, no matter what their creation consists of, and particularly those people who are creating their lives to be exactly what they want them to be, then I am fully inspired.
Inspiration is an in-breath, a drawing in of substance and life. I am not actively creating art right now, and I’ve been somewhat down about that recently. But I know that by seeking out those who inspire me (and choosing to refrain from my comparison stories in which I am no longer enough), I am filling myself up with beauty, which eventually leads to my own desire to create.
After the inspiration comes the out-breath, the creation.
