Isn’t your first instinct usually your best? We as humans are given these little moments of inspiration throughout our lives, these little moments of beauty. I often wonder what inspires great musicians. It’s probably moments of silence where their ideas can float to the surface. Claude DeBussy had a great quote: “music is what happens between the notes.” Think about that for a moment. I am not a musician, I am an artist by training, but I understand what he means. It’s the moments that are not filled up in a drawing or a melody that are just as beautiful as the rest of the composition.
I’m sitting at my computer right now writing this blog watching the leaves float down in the cool fall breezes. A moment of inspiration. Just look around you, there is so much to be discovered.
