What sparks your imagination?

What sparks your imaginationI was thinking about “what to post?” on my blog and, to be totally honest, was faced with “writer’s block.”

Before curling up under the covers last night, I opened up the book I’m currently reading (The Vein of Gold by Julia Cameron) and there was my inspiration.

It was this quote from Plato:

Music has the capacity to touch the innermost reaches of the soul and music gives flight to the imagination.

No, I didn’t turn on any music at that moment, but as I flipped the light switch off, rested my head on my pillow, and headed off to dreamland, I did ponder “what sparks one’s imagination?”

For me, when I lived on Kaua`i, the waves (and the sound) of the amazing blue Pacific Ocean was often my inspiration. Last night, Plato’s quote inspired me.

How about you? Whether you’re writing marketing copy, a blog, poem, song or simply journaling, what sparks your imagination? Is it music, nature, a good book? Please share your comments below. I’d love to hear from you.
