I'm watching the Dave Grohl series called Sonic Highways, where he goes to major music cities and learns about the history of the area and the studios and writes a song based on that experience. It's inspiring and heartfelt and, having just watched the NY one, a little depressing. The idea of character fading from a city - just as it's fading from SF. Corporations taking over. Little shops disappearing. I guess maybe you could say well, it already happened in rural areas, and has leached into cities.
Let's go back to inspiring. Creativity. It is your responsibility if you have a gift to bring it to the world. I like to think I have a gift. I am slowly bringing it to the world.
I'm also getting inspired by my upcoming trip to Peru. A friend is living there for 6 months (her husband is Peruvian) and I'm visiting in May. I really have no desired to see the landscape. I want to spend time with people. I want to maybe volunteer. I want cultural experiences. I want to blend. (ha!). And maybe get inspired to get back overseas to live. THAT would take a great leap of faith. Me with my medical issues, and being over 50, leaving the US to live abroad and come back with no job. My o my.
We shall see. We shall see. For right now, I have to do my job(s) well so people might someday want me back. :-)
