I started to make a list of things that can give me inspiration. I easily came up with twenty things that arouse my emotions and spark ideas which sometimes lead to some form of creative response. These days I am most likely to express myself creatively in some form of writing. I also love to take photos of things that inspire me.
Here is my list:
Natural environments including rivers, beach and mountains
Birds and animals
Old buildings, ruins, old farm machinery, rusted out cars
History and museums
Day trips and holidays
Seasons, sunrise and sunset
Clothing and accessories
There are many other things and experiences that inspire me. I enjoy sharing things that inspire me by writing or talking about them or taking photos to show others. I will be writing an article, illustrated with photos about each of the things I have listed
Friends, work mates, relatives, people we have brief random contact with, artists, musicians and all sorts of people can provide us with inspiration. When I find someone who shares a passion for something with me I find that extra-inspirational.
