Inspire (Five Minute Friday)

What does it take to inspire me? That is a tough one, or maybe it is really an easy one. The tough answer is I never know what will inspire me. The easy answer is anything and everything might inspire me.

Sometimes, it is seeing a picture. Other times, it is people watching in a park, or seeing some piece of junk on the side of the road, or maybe a billboard with some profound message on it.

I find inspiration in some unlikely places. I see textures in the blue and white speckled paint on a camping pot at a sporting goods store. I especially find inspiration in tile, specifically the tile on bathroom walls. Sometimes it is in the coolest patterns, and very colorful. Half the fun of writing these Five Minute Friday posts is the idea of making a new graphic to post with my musings using one of the colorful textures I have captured as I go about my business and live my life. Sometimes it isn’t what we see when we look at something that inspires us, it is what we see when we look a little closer and get a new perspective.

This post is part of the weekly Five Minute Friday link-up!
The prompt this week is: Inspire
The assignment: Write for five minutes on the word of the week. This is meant to be a free write, which means: no editing, no over-thinking, no worrying about perfect grammar or punctuation. Just write.
