Inspiration is an elusive entity that can hit you at an unguarded moment when least expected while it can let down someone who desperately seeks it! It could be artistic or creative, depending upon what one is pursuing and can come from within or from an external stimuli like nature, surrounding environments or people.
In Greek mythology there are Muses – the goddesses of inspiration of literature, science and arts. The modern world has adapted them as the ‘muse’, essentially a person who inspires an artist, writer or musician.
Moving on to the subtle quality of inspiration it is not necessary that it has to come from a person! For those who love nature can understand what it means to be totally overpowered by a breathtaking view of a sunset by the sea, the natural beauty of rain-washed mountains and grass lands or the plain rawness of a jungle. It evokes feelings that are hard to express in words. These feelings positively move even those who claim to be unaffected by nature or art.
Then there are spaces! Spaces that inspire… Ultimately all great artists give life to their creations in their most favourite space. Their den, their studio or their most inspiring spot! These spaces bear an intangible life-like quality within them. They nurture, nourish and inspire people who inhabit them! They envelop them in their warmth and create an ambience that brings out the best in an individual! They bear testimony to the highs and lows of that person inspiring him/her to bounce back from any situation.
