Smashwords Interview

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I revel in a question like that, because life is not about getting out of bed and inspiration only, it is much more complex. The question creates the idea that life is about day and night and that you have to be inspired to get out of bed. My picture is about a life where we have to live as if time does not exist, as if creativity is not from daylight only, but that it is available every second of every day, made available to you by an Entity that created the world with you and me in it. I am many times inspired to get into bed, to contemplate the meaning of life. I am many times inspired more when in bed, than outside of it. Inspiration therefore is found in all aspects of life and especially in nature, which offers zillions of inspirational ideas if you are prepared to find time to look for it. Bio-mimicry is a fascinating field, as nature already has all the answers. Please visit to see what I mean. Inspiration never stops and is not confined ever!
Describe your desk
I designed and made my desk with some hand tools in my garage, together with the rest of my furniture in my office. My desk is always covered with a few projects at a time, ranging from architectural designs to projects managed for customers and it overlooks the Indian ocean in the south and the Outeniqua mountains in the north. The sound of the never-ending waves attacking the beach, drowns most other disturbing noises created by traffic. Music from my computer will get the creative juices flowing when I design, draw, paint or write. I recently refurbished my office chair and I am sure you understand why!
