34 places to look for inspiration . . .
Through the lens of a camera
In a great neighborhood bookstore
In a garden where you can dig for it
Through the eyes of a friend
In the laughter of little kids
On the shelves of your local library
In the conversations around you — Listen in!
Via movies, TV shows, and YouTube videos
In the sound of a burbling spring
On the beach, on the street, or on the subway
In the faces of lovers and strangers
Via Craigslist, Buzzfeed, Reddit, or StumbleUpon
In People, Vanity Fair, Wired, Woman’s Day
On Facebook, on Twitter, on Google+
In a great retail gift store
Via Tumblr, Medium, Flickr, etc.
In your notebooks, junk drawers, or diaries
On a random street or highway
In the wag of a dog’s tail
Via a podcast, a webinar, or a Google Hangout
On the pages of Amazon, Ebay, Wayfair, etc.
In one of your old blog posts
Up in your attics and down in your basements
On the pages of your favorite bloggers
In WalMart, Target, Home Depot, or Lowe’s
Through the hearts and minds of your friends
Via a Google or Bing search
Amid the hustle and bustle of your office
On Pinterest, Instagram, or Snapchat
In a book, a poem, an essay, a manifesto
On the dark side of the moon
In the stillness of the night
Via the deepest inkling of your soul
