I can tell you directly that I almost NEVER get inspiration while I am sitting at the piano ready to write. Usually the inspiration comes at the most inconvenient times and in the most inopportune places. Just to name a few, how about in the middle of the night when all of my seven children decided to be sick with stomach flu at the same time, or waiting at the longest stoplight in the history of red lights, or standing in line at the airport waiting for the TSA to check my luggage?
However, I can say that most of my inspiration seems to come when I am out taking walks. I find being in nature to be very conducive to the Spirit. Another place where (and when) I seem to get inspired to write music is during the night when I should be sleeping. My mind seems to come alive at night and regularly keeps me from sleep. I also have a luxurious jetted tub that is a great place to allow inspiration to flood over me (pun intended). The challenge always is trying to remember the ideas given to me long enough to get them written down!
