Word:  Inspiration

Merriam-Webster Definition:
1a: a divine influence or action on a person believed to qualify him or her to receive and communicate sacred revelation b the action or power of moving the intellect or emotions c: the act of influencing or suggesting opinions
2: the act of drawing in; specifically: the drawing of air into the lungs
3a: the quality or state of being inspired b: something that is inspired
4: an inspiring agent or influence


Inspiration is something close to an artist’s heart. If you love graphic design, music, dance, or writing, you know what it means to feel inspired. Many of you have hobbies or careers that call for inspiration to be successful. Inspiration can come by way of a photo, a conversation, a book or movie, or a memory. Many people feel inspired when they spend time alone and can reflect on past events. Others feel inspired when they are surrounded by movement and activity. Inspiration comes in many forms, and when released, it leads to some of the most beautiful art.

I am inspired by words, obviously, so I often find inspiration when talking with friends, reading a book or the news, and listening to song lyrics…preferably, not all simultaneously.

What is your inspiration?
