Scarlet Begonias

No, I haven't lost my mind and changed this to a blog about flowers. Scarlet Beginias is a song by the Grateful Dead. This post is named what it is for a line in the song:

Once in awhile you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right.

Holy crap is that an amazing line. It's saying that you can find inspiration anywhere you look as long as you're looking for it.

That's right, inspiration isn't always sitting around going "HEY!! OVER HERE!!!! INSPIRATION UP FOR GRABS!!"

That would be pretty cool, but that's not how it works. Most of the time you have to find it on your own. Sometimes it's right there and you can grab it. Sometimes it's under your pillow, or behind a tree, or in your desk drawer at the office. You just have to look. It can be almost anywhere. Really, I swear.

Where was the most interesting place you were able to find inspiration? For that matter, how about the most obvious? Please share...thanks.


  1. Hey Mark,

    Followed you here from changing our game! I love to comment, believe it makes the universe go round

    I find inspiration in nature. Take a real scarlet begonia for example. The interior of an opened flower is a sight to behold. The little parts are beautiful and fascinating. Us humans copy nature but rarely give it credit.

    It's our role model!

    When I stay in tune with nature, all kinds of ideas pop into my head. It's inspiration galore!
