The Most Interesting Thing: Hunting Inspiration
"Words are often seen hunting for an idea, but ideas are never seen hunting for words."
Does that quote make sense to you? Lately I haven't been feeling very inspired, so this month I'm on the hunt for inspiration. Books, music, poetry, and movies are my usual hunting grounds. I also find inspiration while tromping through the forest or working in the garden. Last week I discovered an interesting movie, Pandaemonium which sparked my curiosity about the 18th century poet, Samuel Taylor Coleridge. I've been gorging on his poems ever since. But I'm always on the lookout for new hunting ground.
What has inspired you lately? Where do you go when you need to fill your creative well?
