Another storm appeared out of nowhere the other day. After the rain clouds passed, I went outside and discovered something in the puddles. It was inspiration, staring back at me as I viewed my reflection in the pools of water. I reached down to touch it and it ignited a spark that electrified my whole body. In my head I could hear new music, a combination of Bach and Beethoven mixed with modern music of our time. An aroma of sweet flowers drifted in with the light breeze swirling around me. I memorized each sensation so that I could return to my writing and find the words to match my thoughts.
I don't know how to describe creativity or the inspiration that allows it to appear out of nowhere. You can't find it with a road map. It finds you in the midst of the winter storms. As I look at the chessboard of my life, I now see how each piece has a purpose; each of the five senses plays a role in sharing the vision with you. Somehow I'm separated from the confines of time and space. I see the moves that are ahead. Now it's time to find the words to match this new inspiration that sprouted from the rain clouds. Today will be a big writing day. I can't wait to share my next book with you.
