i can be inspired by almost anything. it depends on the situation and mood that i have at a particular moment. when i am into nature, i can be motivated by its elements. and this phenomena goes on with the other moods i may have.
If I give most things my attention long enough I can get inspired. Would this be something to do with the fact that Zen practice produces an "empty mind" in which there would be space for more interests? I don't know :-)
