    This was an easier question to answer years ago when my adult identity was forming. It was eye opening to learn from the experience of people outside my own family. I dove deep.

    These days I find that my interest/inspiration is more transient, and more to do with specific skills or areas than an overall approach to life. I think I'm also more inspired by people I actually know.

    I also don't have any particularly grand ambitions at the moment, so famous people aren't particularly inspiring. I read some piece of gossip recently about a starlet who dropped out of Hollywood for several years because she didn't like being a sex symbol and she wanted to raise her kids. I wouldn't say I was inspired by I felt a pulse of empathy. Does that count?

    If you had asked fifteen or twenty years ago I would have described someone who was... a poet, a scholar, and a mighty warrior.

    He starred in a famous TV show in the 90s, lost countless family members due to violence

    Is generally a good dude (probably) and resilient

    I love his resilience
    His spirit
    His acting
    The way he talks
    His rich vocabulary

    I just love him

    historical figures count. i'm not particularly inspired by most contemporary celebrities...

    mine's really obvious and i guess this person is both, though

    20th century pop mozart


    and/or

    psychedelic childhood harmony

    and/or

    i am seeing him in concert with the zombies in september. i wonder whether performing has kept him healthy or done him harm.

    edit: Heph got this one! but what does he win? is this a game? you tell me! i don't even know even though i made this thread

    After breaking his arm, had it set so that he could still pursue his passion.

    Nearly electrocuted himself to death in an early attempt to put himself on the radio.

    You know his name but have forgotten any other than his main contribution.

    1. She’s a barrister and worked on the recognition of the Armenian Genocide.
    2. She studies “shame”. She’s a great storyteller and she inspired me so much on embracing my vulnerability.
