I know what I like, and because of that it’s very easy to get into a rut. But tonight, and time’s like tonight, I get inspired and that’s what all of those days work towards. I hope to get to a point that the space in between these nights is not so far apart. But everything is a work in progress. Here’s to never peaking and consistently improving.
So what am I inspired by tonight? The mess in my room. This is usually something that gives me anxiety, but tonight the piles represent excitement and creativity. I started using the sticker maker Matt got me for my birthday, and I made stickers to post up as part of the Spread The Love installment that I want to keep going with Miki.
There’s also my Awe-Manac which gave me a creativity tip tonight: “do some work that prepares you for the creative accident to happen; look up some facts, daydream with a focus on your idea, expose yourself to something different or inspiring, defy the rut today, make a list of ideas.”
I’m inspired by the quote I read last night from Yayoi Kusama
“…a polka-dot has the form of the sun, which is a symbol of the energy of the whole world and our living life, and also the form of the moon, which is calm. Round, soft, colorful, senseless and unknowing. Polka-dots become movement… Polka-dots are a way to infinity.”
… but more by her story which involves her inspiration from personal hallucinations.
I am perpetually inspired by Keri Smith and her ideas. Although, lately, it’s not as much the ideas that she’s come up with specifically.. it’s that I can make my own and provide inspiration to others if I choose to do so. Did I mention today is her birthday?
I’m going to do something great, you know. This is the summer that begins my greatness.
