    Books, good writing is always a joy, a pleasure very dear to me.

    I just finished re-reading Tony Hawks books 'Playing the Moldovians at Tennis' very funny, a gem of a book.

    Music.

    Any kind of music that holds a message can really inspire me.

    Yeah Music I suppose.

    To be honest lately I find my life holds no inspiration..

    I mean my son and girlfriend inspire me to make something of myself - but I guess that's more motivation rather than inspiration.

    I am sad.

    That is not sad to be honest. That is a very honest answer and would've been surprised if you said something else :)

    I bought that on a whim many years ago because I had book voucher I'd won in school or something. Anyway, didn't regret that at, very fine book!

    Back to topic... I'm inspired by hearing about how focused people can be on certain issues. Like Nelson Mandela kept a picture of a dancer torn out of National Geographic in his prison cell because it reminded him of the positive aspects of human nature or something like that.

    Music, things that have happened to me, stories that people have written, my dog (to an extent) and the way people act towards me all inspire me.

    for a second there i had this vision that you had written something poetic and tear jerking about how you draw your inspiration from the beauty of nature/music/newborn babies/hot girls and how precious life is.

    should have known better :p
