What inspires us? You may say: a book, a painting, a movie, this or that but regardless of the inspiration, it always comes from something or someone else. The inspiration imprints your work, leaving an eternal mark on whatever you produce. With an inspiration, is there any original work? Who has produced a piece of writing or form of communication without a predecessor significantly affecting it? It’s easy to call your work “my own” but is it really yours? What thoughts, inclinations, hopes, aspirations, caused you to express such a work or helped you prove your point (if it’s your point at all)? But if everyone receives his or her inspiration from someone else there must be some form or source that was there in the beginning, right? Everything comes from something;surely, something didn’t just come from nothing. Therefore, all we write has meaning and energy from its original source. It is the original inspiration that unleashed our ability to produce our own train of thought and work. That original inspiration must be eternal. The sense of creation would defer that because every painting has a painter. Before you decide to “write” this off, stop and ask yourself those questions I have so gently touched on. It’s difficult to ask those questions and not want an answer. I am not saying I have those answers; I am merely asking you to think. Just threw my thoughts on paper. This piece is not yet finished.
