Inspirado

I’m sitting at work, waiting until the people on the stage floor (70 feet below me) need me.

It’s the first big show of the new year.  I should be excited just to get my hands back into the game.  So, in my down time, what do I think about?  Staining wood.  I’ve been mentally working out a problem with mounting some wall pieces that I’ve been working on, and suddenly had and idea.  I’m goin’ industrial.  Tek screws, maybe.  Then, another idea.  Using initials with simple patterns, both inside and on the background.  I’m looking around me for a piece of paper or pen or anything to write on, and nothing.  Another idea, and at this point I’m almost frantically trying to remember all of these ideas.  I can’t forget!  Who knows when I’ll be able to sketch something.  Of all the unlikely places to get inspired….
