Inspiration is everywhere ~ just look. Right now, for example, I am sitting at my desk, and in my immediate view is a back-up drive. It's a commonplace object, but that doesn't mean it can't provide inspiration. It could signify setting aside the old to make room for the new, holding on to things that we want to keep safe ~ or that we're afraid to release. To my left, a handwritten list is taped to the wall. It may hold goals or tasks, steps to solve a problem... or maybe clues to buried treasure! On my right sits an eraser. Just an eraser ~ a metaphor for creating a blank slate, erasing a bad habit, or banishing chaos. It is truly amazing what inspiration can be found in some of the most unlikely places.
