What is it about inspiration?

What inspires?  What works for you?  Where is your quiet? I sometimes feel confined. I sometimes feel that art is that thing we fight for, the time, the space, everything aligned to allow for creation.  Artists live in the real world.  We have families, kids, other jobs.  So to be quiet in itself is a fight.  Let the laundry pile up, don't make that bed, be messy and put is all aside.  The world will try to confine you.  The job is to push back and create.
