INSPIRATION IS EVERYWHERE!
Inspiration is everywhere! The young man getting his girlfriend’s name tattooed on his arm; the wife shopping for seductive underwear; the husband ordering flowers at the last minute; the elderly couple strolling in the park holding hands. There are couples riding in horse-drawn carriages, ice skating at Wolman Rink, dining at intimate restaurants, dancing until dawn. There are the marriage proposals, flashy diamond rings, big announcements.
Use all your senses! Pay attention to the sweetness of a box of chocolate-covered strawberries, the bubbles in a flute of champagne, the aroma of a dozen red roses, the shiny eyes of seduction, and the soft sounds of love songs playing in the background.
See? Inspiration is everywhere. But even as you draw inspiration from the world around you, do remember to show some love to your significant other, family, and friends (cards not texts; face-to-face not Skype).
I can feel the love already. I’m giddy with it, and with inspiration and camaraderie. I am ready to write! Are you? --mcf
