Anyhow, on one recent indulgence I bought Vanity Fair - Rooney Mara was front and center. Within the glossy gem, one of the features included this behind-the-scenes photo of the fashion photographer's Inspiration Board. A cluttered wall full of photos he was looking to be inspired by.

In the short-term, it's the things I have at my fingertips that actually need to be in front of my eyeballs.
In the long-term, it's the loveable art, the likeable font, the photo that inspires, the person who motivates. Maybe a list of the women I want to interview... next week.
