The Latin word for Inspiration is Inspirare which means to breathe in or blow out.

Most people like to think of inspiration that comes to us like the air we breathe. I much prefer the image of breathing life into something.

Inspiration isn’t this mystical entity that decides to bless us with its presence. In fact, inspiration doesn’t precede the work. More often than not, it is the other way around. We do the work and then the inspiration comes.
