Creation can be a high pressure moment. It doesn’t
matter if it is writing, a machine design or a new
layout for your garden. That blank that needs to be
filled, mirroring the blank in your mind. Those moments
when you need the inspiration, and it doesn’t come.
In the Ancient Greece, inspiration was believed to
come from the muses. Armed with a laurel branch, their
"wondrous voices" singing their verses full
of the knowledge of the past and the future, caused
the emptiest of minds to become flooded with countless
and utterly creative ideas.
Inspiration has evolved through the years, though:
from those almost ecstatic moments to more mundane
sources of inspiration. Famous painters like Picasso
and Dali found theirs through their women. Truman
Capote got it from his cigarettes and coffee; well,
a coffee that turned into tea that turned into a martini,
as the day wore on. Contrary to what the gossips say,
Lennon got the inspiration for "Lucy in the Sky
with Diamonds" from one of his son’s school mates,
Lucy O’Donnell. Chris Martin, Coldplay’s singer, got
the inspiration for Clocks from a night of insomnia.
The last place in the list will be given to F Scott
Fitzgerald who, it was claimed, got inspiration from
his wife’s diary; allegedly he copied entire paragraphs
into his novels. Let’s put this in the same category
as the LSD claim for the Beatles song.
So if you are in one of those high pressure moments,
just try any of the above inspiration methods. And
if it is your application which is under high pressure,
you can rely on the latest Electro-pneumatic regulator
