Personally, I find it in many places. Nature is by far my biggest source of inspiration. I live in a Yup'ik Eskimo village on the tundra of Alaska.

Wow. AK! Thanks for starting this discussion topic. I have a son that is an AK State Trooper (Kenai peninsula).
I can't say I have any particular 'inspirations' that I can rely on, but am often inspired by nature and science as is the 'Sense of Wonder' of both.
The amazing size of the universe and how it works, life and its evolution, and of course 'stupid human tricks'
