    My depression.

    When I feel down, I feel a need to go play the piano. (I love my bassoon and saxophone, but the piano is better for writing music, I think.)

    I get inspiration some so many things! Don't know sometimes where it comes from! Like a beautiful day, the countryside, london in summer, a squirral carrying nuts up a tree!

    The world at times can be soo inspirational!!

    My mood = the mood of my music

    I just play and the notes come along... it's hard to describe.

    For Inspiration -
    I look outside and see the birds or go to the park and see the butterflies but most of all for inspiration i look to the clouds and see all the amazing things around

    I dont know why but reading C.G.Jung always triggers an immense flow of creativity (music, arts, writing,...).

    Thats strange since no other author, nothing else stimulates me as much as that. And I`ve tried a lot (being in nature for months, meditating, being with other creative people and reading so much about spirituality ).
    I think Jung is one of the very rare writers from europe whom I read extensively at the age of 18 already and still do now and always can find new things within, it seems to me as if his texts grow wiser with the time and if after some years I read a book of him again, its completely different, like aktualized and full of wise things.
    Other authors may write things shorter and clearer (synthetisized spirituality) than him but strangely dont trigger any creativety within me, even if their texts seem (or are) smarter.

    It certainly eases the process. That's for sure.

    Already has been described.
    It's called Zen.

    @OP:
    Only the best, the canvas suggests!

    Feeling healthy, exercised, yet well-rested. Laughter. Storms. Colorful sunrises and sunsets. My family. A good dose. Reading anything by Richard Dawkins. Camping.

    "Inspiration, move me brightly, light the song with sense and color, hold away despair, more than this I will not ask faced with mysteries dark and vast..."

    I'm inspired by my own concepts and ideas. I find an area I want to explore and I go explore it. It's very natual and never forced.
