Laying in bed one night, I realized my mind was blank. It had no inspiration. No want to create things. I go through these periods on occasion, but this is the first one I've had in a while. So I decided to tweet about it.

Hmm. Lacking inspiration right now... what inspires you?— Nat Welch \(@icco\) March 22, 2013

I wasn't really expecting much of a response, but instead I got a stream of funny, interesting and thoughtful responses. Two of the tweets especially stuck with me:

@icco Nature in general, the vastness of the Pacific Ocean and the physical power contained there\-in, as observed at Morro Bay breakwater.— Mark Smith \(@smittyhalibut\) March 22, 2013
@icco Art. Stories that create emotion. Anger.— David Horn \(@Madrox\) March 22, 2013
