New Practice: Inspiration Days

IMG_1344 2


“Keep some room in your heart for the unimaginable.” -Mary Oliver

I have somewhat recently started a new practice that I have coined, “inspiration days.”  What is an “inspiration day,” you might ask?  An “inspiration day” is a day I clear once a month where I do not have anything on my agenda and I am free to do what I would like for a day, non-work related, which helps create space thereby sparking inspiration and creativity.  For example, on “inspiration days” I have gone to the museum, a really long walk, and read some inspiring books, uninterrupted.  Each “inspiration day” provide a new experience, which helps spark creativity and new ideas.  The “inspiration days” come in really handy when I am trying to work through a problem that I cannot solve.  Usually, most of the time, out of nowhere, it seems, the answer presents itself, after taking a step away.  Therefore, in an effort to finish the final leg of my long-term photography project, I have implemented “inspiration days” to help keep inspiration and the creative ideas flowing.  No matter what, I believe, “inspiration days” can be fruitful for anyone.  We all need to take a step back every now and then, right?

Happy Monday!
