Ideas, words, sentences, action and imagery all come from a mix of sources. Whether I am creating for professional or personal accomplishment, influences inside my head connect with what I see, hear, read, watch, feel and experience.
What about you? As you may conclude — from the title of my post — music is a key motivator; especially today. Credit goes to the Doors and other artists who push me to take a few extra steps to imagine, dream, write, run, and dance.
Music inspires me because of the connection it can make with so many different people. Upon dropping my son at school this afternoon, I was listening to Journey, one of my all-time faves. Don’t Stop Believin’ and Wheel in the Sky transported me to summer memories. Instead of seeing a bleak, rainy winter scape, I saw blues mixing with greens, yellows, and reds. All of a sudden, I could see myself sailing the Great Lakes with my dad, sister and mom in the late ’70s.
Where does music take you?
