Inspiration comes to me from many places, though the most influential source for me are my friends.
Spending time with friends always inspires me to explore and move forward on whatever project I may be contemplating. Spending time together, chatting, and sharing books always opens the mind and enables new concepts that were just bits and pieces to coalesce into something complete and whole.
Our dining room table is currently strewn with books from friends and loved ones. I know I need to pick them up and clear the table, but I must admit I like seeing them there... it like having my friends with me right now with me.
