Feel Uninspired

Feel Uninspired

An essay about bracken, depression, and the simple joy of discovering creative inspiration in ostensibly uninspiring everyday things.

"In paying close attention to ordinary objects and discovering their commonplace, yet arresting, and continually changing beauty, we might force a change of direction from bleak inaction to motivation and, from what may have seemed the least promising of all beginnings, we could start something different, something useful, something new."
