Where does inspiration come from? Does it come from the dark places in our souls? Does it ooze from the wounds that life creates? Or does inspiration come when we begin to heal? When the light begins to reach the dark parts of our souls. Creation, inspiration, it is a balm that heals. It comes from both, for without the darkness there can be no light. Inspiration comes from a need; a need to both express one’s self and to feel understood. This is a natural longing because we are social creatures. So in essence inspiration comes from society. And inspiration creates society. Inspiration is an entirely unique experience that both gives and takes. A cathartic expression of the soul.
