Do you leave your mind at the bar entrance? Might there be something of "inspiration" you see or hear in a public place, you wouldn't find at home? I can't say, of course, but observation and thinking accompany you everywhere. Visit the bar. (Not regularly).

I'll start this off by saying I wanted to go to a bar tonight but instead I'm going to stay home and try and be a creator.  So now to the topic.

What is, to you, inspiration?

An intellectual  itch that cannot be scratched away.

AH,

Ayn Rand, for one thing. Jordan Peterson (a recent discovery for me) for another. Neuroscience, modern psychology (especially evolutionary psychology), persuasion, fiction writing, the spirit in America that veered away from a collectivist/elitist cliff and resulted in the election of President Trump, probing the meaning of life, my immediate family. I deal with these everyday and I love them all. Each has their heroes, insights, mysteries and fun. What's more, I'm sure I left out some things. :) 

What is inspiring to to you? What do you want to create?

My best work was inspired by music: Jimmy Page and John Bonham, Frank Zappa, Jimi Hendrix

Yup, an inspirational source is causal, prompting action. Inspired - by something(/someone) to do - what?

(Thought is also action).

How does your addiction assert itself?  What do you do to your itch  to scratch it?

I like the inspiration I find in magazines like "Readers Digest" and "Remind." Also when I do New York Times Sunday crosswords I usually have one or more notes to myself scribbled at the bottom.

Reading about people doing stupid, horrible things to other people. I try to understand why so--just maybe--I can do something about it. No luck so far.

I've always been most focused on the macro level, from about the age of 5 or 6.

The biggest and stupidest thing I can think of was WWI.

something about the ammunition makers--metaphorically if not literally

Brant,  This is the best succinct post of yours ever. And nobody does succinct like you.  Maybe I should revive the weekly awards.

On further thought, not quite right.  What I said above is more of an obsession than an inspiration.
