    Jun 10 2013: Hm, my two cents - if you're a writer - read. If you're a painter - visit a gallery. If you're a songwriter - go to a concert or listen to your favourite band. See? For me though - sit on a bench in a park and observe people, I find it that people are the biggest source of inspiration. :)
