Outside The Walls…
When it comes to inspiration, answers don’t always sit within our walls.
What we are familiar with we can cease to see.
Like you, I am looking for inspiration and activation all the time. I’ve sought it by going outside the walls, reading different material, looking for lyrics, talking to different people, seeking non-obvious parallels. And there’s something about engaging the radicals, the progressives, the extremists, the expressive in all different running lanes…in books, music and articles, in various venues…another reason I love the library!
It lets you see what a small sliver of people, those early adopters, were saying yesterday about today…or today about tomorrow.
Inspiration is the necessary fuel for creation. It’s everywhere – and that God-thirst will sometimes direct us to find it…outside the walls.
