Where does the inspiration go?

For a few mornings I’ve been waking up and wondering… what on earth do I take a photo of this morning? And what on earth do I write about? The sun, I guess? To find inspiration and creativity every morning is no easy task.

It may be the case that this is such a routine now that it has lost a bit of its edge. Some inclement weather would be really helpful right now. But even Superior’s waves have been the same calm ripples each morning.

I’ve been returning to many of the same places recently and need to get out of town. More new places. There’s a growing list of places to get to, but it all requires more gas money, more loding and accomdations, and time away from projects I should be working on (like jobs and clients that do pay).

This is now the 194th consecutive day. If there is someone that can feel inspired for 194 mornings straight, I’d like to meet that person and learn how they do it.


Fuel more Sunrises

There is plenty more to come from Year of the Sunrise. You can always add a cup of coffee to keep me going strong in the mornings, or a tank of gas to get me to some new places, as the sun keeps rising.
