The Well of Inspiration

As artists, where do we find that which moves us to create?  For me, the answer frequently is in the work of others -- musicians, writers, filmmakers, painters, philosophers.  In the case of this piece, the touchstone was the work of Carlos Castaneda, whose writings I first read avidly in the 1970s.

From where do you draw your inspiration?

If you love a good thriller, let me recommend my brother's debut novel.  It's a helluva ride!
