Inspiration comes when???

“Neccesity is the mother of invention.” This morning I logged on and stared at this blank post screen waiting to be inspired. I thought about my actions up until this moment and how I could put those actions into some sort of order or some “wonderful” metaphor / analogy. However I came up with snake eyes and then in my moment of loose I realized what to write about.

Inspiration of course! So where does your inspiration come from I told you mine.  I am inspired for the most part by my day to day life. Small things that I see happen and I am part of happening. One of the Fathers of Nike found inspiration in his wife’s waffle iron. The story of the most successful tread running shoe goes a little like this: “Bowerman began experimenting with different potential outsoles that would grip the new urethane track more effectively. His efforts were rewarded one Sunday morning when he poured liquid urethane into his wife’s waffle iron.” 

Bowermans inspiration came at breakfast, he acted on his inspiration and history happened. Todays inspiration could happen at anytime. When I think of inspiration I am reminded of this quote

Every moment and every event of every man’s life on earth plants something in his soul.
Thomas Merton
