"Listen, when I was a little girl, I used to spend hours looking for ladybugs.
Finally, I'd just give up and fall asleep in the grass.
When I woke up....they were crawling all over me."
as told by Katherine to Frances in the movie "Under the Tuscan Sun"
sometimes when i'm looking for inspiration i'll look through some of my favorite magazines....which leads me to looking through my collection of books.....and then i'll find myself on the computer ooohing and ahhhing at other people's blogs....which will somehow take me straight to youtube. and after hours of searching, i discover that i've managed to cross that fine line between inspiration and overwhelm!
usually when i feel like i need to search for inspiration, what i really need to do is just give my creative brain a rest. and when i allow myself to take an artistic breather....just like ladybugs in the grass....inspiration will find me when i'm ready for it!
