i've had a fairly large shortage of inspiration lately. like i'm the last person to think of something good. the last few days have been rather busy, and i do believe this is the first time in a long time that i've been able to just sit down and figure out what's going to happen next. 
 it is nearly ten minutes after a bacon + eggs breakfast. there is pride & prejudice for schooltime and i can't seem to stop thinking about my swim meet this weekend. i am taking this opportunity to listen to peaceful, passionate music. hear.

i have come to realize that innovation--inspiration comes when you least expect it. it doesn't like being sought after by a sword, or a hatchet. when you need it, it is quiet, and when you don't, it just won't seem to stop talking. in some cases, this is not a good thing. but it my case, why not? i will take all that is thrown out of me and i will make something out of it. the sky is not the limit, it's just one atmosphere. and of course, there are many more than one. 

on inspiration: “Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, 'I will try again tomorrow'.” -Mary Ann Radmacher

"When all think alike, then no one is thinking." -Walter Lippman

"Creativity, as has been said, consists largely of rearranging what we know in order to find out what we do not know. Hence, to think creatively, we must be able to look afresh at what we normally take for granted." -George Kneller
