    Dec 14 2011: We must not wait for someone / something to inspire us. We must be pioneers and inspire others, and by all means get inspired by others when there is something worth it!

    Nature, Dreams, and TED are some sources of my inspiration.

    Dec 13 2011: Trying to apprehend something and communicate it. Definitely through music - it's like a spoonful of sugar with the message, if there is one.

    For what reason: the only thing I can think to say is that it's the thing I'm good at.

      Dec 14 2011: I hope I could be good at playing something really well too. Never really had the patience or the passion to learn it all.. One of the things that I hope I can learn is playing an instrument really well. So, great!

      thanks

    Dec 13 2011: Over the past 2 or 3 years, TED has been a source of my inspiration. All music, and, oh yeah, Jean Luc Picard of the Star Ship Enterprise has inspired me since 1987.

      Dec 14 2011: I think inspiring others is one of the most difficult things to do. If your inspiration is inspiring others, that's so great!

      thanks Justin :)

    Dec 13 2011: My greatest source of inspiration has always been from music. Music was a sort-of surrogate parent for me growing up and I turned my creative energy toward it. Through music I learned journalism, photography, video-editing, web design, record producing, record collecting, a sense of rhythm and beat, met my wife through being in bands, etc.

    MUSIC...My inspiration...definetly!

      Dec 14 2011: One of the things that inspire me is music too. I've grown up with music in my house all the time, and now, I can't live without it.

      It's opening up such a big and beautiful world to me.
      thanks Greg
