"Inspiration is only for amateurs" is a statement that intrigued me. Since that day, I've thought about it over and over. Do creative people, like artists and writers, need a determined work ethic more than they need inspiration?
What is inspiration anyway? For me, it's a revelation that causes change of some kind. Perhaps it's a change in the way of thinking. Perhaps it's a change in life direction. Perhaps it is something more intangible.

While there is no substitute for dedicated work ethic, I believe we all need inspiration. Some more than others.
And they aren't all amateurs.
Thank you, Chuck Close, for making me think. Thank you for making me consider what is inspiration and who needs it.
We all do...
