IT FINALLY HAPPENED. AFTER THESE YEARS OF WRITING ARTICLES FOR THIS “INSPIRATION” COLUMN, I PAUSED TO ASK MYSELF, “JUST WHAT IS INSPIRATION?”
Webster says it is “a breathing in.” To inspire is to breathe, to infuse life, to have a supernatural influence.
So what is it that inspires us? We could remember times or places in answering this question. Sitting on the rocks of the North Shore of Lake Superior with wind and waves crashing is inspiring. Enjoying a quiet evening on a local lake while fishing could be inspiring.
