The word really means "breathing in".  We all do this all this time.  Sometimes, though, we take huge breaths in.  It's a gasp of astonishment, really.  We don't do it because we are breathless, but because we are "blown away".  When you can't write but want to, and you've got your attitude on and it still doesn't work, try going onto NASA's website, or National Geographic's or really any site that shows you photographs of things that already fascinate you.  Bet you'll find some "inspiration" there.
I love caves and stones and geology and astronomy and a lot of other astounding things.  So, here are a few pictures (or kind of picture) that give me inspiration.

Thanks for the inspiration Welwyn! I too love anything to do with space, rock formations and water. I especially love waterfalls. Whether these pictures provide inspiration or simply clear our minds to allow the ideas to flow, they are beautiful.

The pictures are wonderful, especially the ones about space. My daughter challenged me to write a story about outer space so these are very timely inspiration!

That first photo of the basalt cave in Australia still holds my interest! I keep looking into the little dark tunnel area, expecting a tiny boat to come paddling out... it's intriguing.

I'm so pleased you love the same kind of pictures I do. I have to tell you the first one, the one Rettakat mentions, still takes away my breath every time I look at it. It seems so ... magical, and yet it isn't, it's real life. Or, perhaps, I'm looking at it wrong. Perhaps I should say it's real life that's magical! I love the space pictures too, Karen. They are humbling and yet glorifying. I feel so small, looking through NASA's telescopes, via the internet. One little person sitting here at the computer, and I can see so, so, so, far.... I love waterfalls as well, Jessica. I haven't been able to find any pictures as yet on the internet that catch me under the sternum, but sometimes there are calendars that show pictures like that. And you know what? I don't play golf, but there's a calendar my daughter got for Greg, my husband, with the twelve most difficult golf-holes (courses?) in the world in it, and that just makes me gasp. So many wonderful things in our world, don't you think?
