Where does Inspiration come from? How do you get it?

Well my answer is simply life. The good, the bad, the beautiful, the ugly. Anything can inspire, it's all up to you.

So today I posted somethings that I get inspiration from.

Duchamp Nude Descending a Staircase c. 1912

PIETA ~Michelangelo was 24 when he created this piece. (I am not overly religious, but this piece just touches me and always has.)

Aedh wishes for the cloths of Heaven


Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

"To My Dear and Loving Husband"
by Anne Bradstreet

If ever two were one, then surely we.
If ever man were loved by wife, then thee;
If ever wife was happy in a man,
Compare with me, ye women, if you can.
I prize thy love more than whole mines of gold
My love is such that rivers cannot quench,
Nor ought but love from thee, give recompense.
Thy love is such I can no way repay,
The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray.
Then while we live, in love let's so persevere
That when we live no more, we may live ever.
What inspires you?
