The Story of October

The Story of Inspiration

It only takes a moment. Or a lifetime. To get inspired is what we all crave and to find meaning is what we're all struggling with. Inspiration hits when we least expect it and it may hit hard without consideration. It may come when cleaning the house and we find ourselves in a pile of clothes searching for NASA pictures to print for the new office. Or when driving far away on an orange code for storms and we end up in a coffee shop surrounded by drenched strangers sharing a cinnamon bottle. Or when we're reading. Oh, I love that one. Reading is the best way to get inspired. We just witnessed someone else's inspiration. And then there are times when one has to write 1000 words essays, and gets to 122 and is just stuck. Uninspired.The advice I have received and follow (or try to) is that inspiration comes when we're actually doing the work. Then inspiration will come. One way or the other. The magical thing is that we cannot plan it, change it, store it or maneuver it as we wish.
