Finding Inspiration

I started this year in search of inspiration.  I was home, alone with a not very busy schedule for the first time in many years.

My path veered and I now spend at least an hour and sometimes over two per day driving (and the rest of the time teaching K-8 music in two schools, plus accompanying two children’s choirs!).  I listen to the radio some, but I quickly get frustrated and bored with music stations.  Instead, I tend to listen to NPR or to my iPod (plugged into my car’s stereo).  I often hear very inspiring stories.
