I thought the subject of muses would make a great first topic. Believe me, I know how old fashioned that sounds, but in a world of an infinite number of rabbit holes, political polarization, and environmental decline, I think focusing on what inspires is a worthwhile endeavor. Unfortunately my own muse shows up most often when I'm driving. She appears next to me when I am least likely to record any of her offerings and somehow I think she knows this. If I pull over, she laughs, hops out and disappears. If I could re-create the conditions under which she graces me with a visit, perhaps I could benefit a bit more and not cross the centerline.
What or who inspires you? When does your muse visit? How do you entice your muse to linger for a while?
