Inspiration! Everything is raw material


“Everything is raw material. Everything is relevant. Everything is usable. Everything feeds into my creativity. But without proper preparation, I cannot see it, retain it, and use it.” — Twyla Tharp

This connects perfectly to last week's inspiration, if you ask me. Part of preparation is to be DOING. I remember when I first took photography in high school, suddenly I was seeing everything around me through the lens of a camera. Everything had was a potential photo with imaginary edges all around it. Then I took a film production course and everything became a film clip. When studying acting, everyone becomes a character. When you work on something, you see the potential everywhere for that medium.
