Just about everywhere I look, I find some sort of inspiration. I mean, take a serious look around and notice everything that has been invented, for starters. Even down to a simple nut or bolt, someone imagined the idea and now we use nuts and bolts in all sorts of machinery or construct. Ever wonder who came up with the chain link fence, or sourdough break, or a shovel, or the glasses/nose/mustache disguise?
Some things were created out of necessity, others out of pure fun. It really doesn’t matter the actual reason, but all were created by an initial inspiration. Everything around us impacts how we create stuff. We don’t just invent X out of the blue, without any reason for it. What would be the point. We are inspirated by what we see around us and from the desire emanating from within ourselves.
