Looking for a ray of inspiration. (Copper Canyon, Mexico, photo by me, 2003)

There are days, like today, when I'm not feeling very inspired as a writer. It's not writer's block -- I can definitely get started. I'm just feeling like I'm lacking a little je ne sais quoi. Flair, perhaps?

After looking over these pieces and what made me dig them in the first place, I'm ready to tackle my writing for the day. Hope they give you some inspiration, too!
