Inspiration Derived from Latin inspiratio is the process of creative stimulation. Always timely and often brilliant, it can occur suddenly (the typical light bulb moment) or take a slow burning path and the outcome drives you to do or see or feel or make or write something new.
I guess it is a matter of personal opinion whether a particular inspiration is indeed ‘brilliant.’ Or not. But it is something that we all experience, probably every day – whether we stop to notice it and how we use it, is what matters.
