“Go into the arts. I’m not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.”
When one seeks inspiration, it may not come. Sometimes you just have to come across a surprising instance of it.
Many things cause me to pause and think, some make me wonder, but to be inspired is rare. Thank you to all who have inspired me. I feel another list coming on … soon.
