So what happens when a small town designer hits the city with her son to explore his education opportunities? For one, I remembered that there are buildings taller than two stories. Another, that book stores exist that cover the same square footage as our entire downtown. And finally, that I am a very small part of a much larger world. As a creative person it is so important to get out of your environment and see what others are doing, what’s current, and look for inspiration. It can come from anything—buildings, bridges, trees, sky, clothing, books, signage—man made or God made use it all. Get out and refuel. Go somewhere new, or go to your favorite spot and clear your mind so you will have room for some new fresh ideas.
