1: the process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative.

Interesting – I found the second definition to be surprisingly directly related to the first. But there are a lot of ramifications to definition number 1. “The process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something…” This seems kind of obvious, but it bears some thought if one is stuck and looking for inspiration.
If I am not inspired, then perhaps I should actively seek out more mental stimulation. From as many different sources as possible…
