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.

  • Playing miniature golf.
  • Lying in bed listening to the rain outside.
  • Dancing naked in the rain.
  • Hitting the road with a good friend and having no destination!
  • The dizzy felling you get when you stare strait up into a clear night sky.
  • Seeing your puppy get excited because you’re home.
  • Meeting new friends.
  • Hearing the sails!
  • Paychecks.
  • Boarding a plane bound for a distant, exotic land.
  • Listening to a friend sing his own compositions.
  • Getting goose bumps from the “going the distance” scene in ROCKY.
  • Your first car.
  • Eating a pool of jello while in France sunbathing next to many slender busty beautiful women with blond hair.
  • San Francisco, CA.
