What exactly is inspiration?

I've been asking myself that very question for weeks while I've been stewing in my real life day-to-day. It seems the smallest interruption can completely derail any previous motivation due to a lack of inspiration. Wow, that was a mouthful. Anyway, that should tell you where I've been the last few weeks. As of my last blog, I've gotten a bit more done, but nowhere near what I should.

So, back to my question: what exactly is inspiration? Is it something found in books, magazines, tv, movies, real life or something that exists entirely on its own? Can I set out on a journey to find it, or does it exist in everything? Is there a small being, much like a muse or a faerie, that exists on a plane interlacing with our own, whose job it is to plant the seeds of inspiration? Or is it just a word we use to describe an overactive imagination?

I don't often struggle for inspiration, but lately I find myself circling a very dangerous drain. My creative side is dying to write, sing, dance, or otherwise express itself while my "real" side is dying to do nothing at all. I guess we see which one is winning, don't we?

So what are your thoughts? How do you see inspiration? And again....

What exactly is inspiration?
