Recently someone asked me where I get the inspiration for the stuff I write about each week. It made me laugh, because I’ve often thought of writing about that, since I think some of you would be a little surprised (and hopefully entertained) by what’s on that list.
An idea for an article can come from practically anywhere. When you have a mind like mine, it twists and turns everything that’s coming in, like a child playing with a toy.
It happens automatically and it’s actually a form of entertainment for me. I did it as a kid. The teacher would say something very interesting, and my mind would tear off on a tangent, manipulating, analyzing and dissecting a concept brutally, devouring it until there was nothing left of it.
