Life’s Inspirations

Some time ago I conducted a project during which I asked visitors to my site to tell me what inspires them—things they consider “natural highs.” As a result of this effort, I’ve collected more than two thousand statements, which I am happy to present here.

So as not to overwhelm you, I’ve configured this page to display several such statements at random. You can see a new set by reloading the page.

  • Holding your newborn baby for the first time.
  • 4 day work weeks.
  • The smell of coffee when you open a new can.
  • Hugging my twins after their bath.
  • Lucid dreaming.
  • Having someone to come home to when you feel so lonely you want to cry.
  • Seeing someone’s face light up after you give them a present.
  • San Francisco on a beautiful, sunny day.
  • Kissing prettiest girl in your school.
  • Teaching kids how to swim and canoe at a summer camp.
