My Inspiration

Posted by

Inspiration is just about everywhere even in my dreams.

I remember very clearly what I was doing when the Creative Brainstorm lightening bolt hit me upside the head. I was in the middle of reading Maria and Charlie Girsch’s book Fanning The Creative Spirit and all of a sudden I realized that I needed to create a site that I could share inspiring stuff.

Where to start, how to go about it, what the heck was I doing, were some of the questions I was asking myself. Then I thought, who the heck cares, just get on with it and so I started collecting, writing, drawing, reading, photography, and designing. The point is is that I was being inspired and I was creating and this is what I had been looking for when I first started this crusade.

For me it comes down to putting myself in situations that make me think, dream, and create. What makes you inspired? Email me at heyyou [at] creativebrainstorm [dot] com. I’d love to write up an article about it.
