|Inspiration Station, DoubleTree by Hilton PDX, NE 9th & Multnomah|
On my way to the Willamette Writer's Conference back in August, this "box on a pole" caught my eye. Turns out there are five Inspiration Stations in the Lloyd District based on the poetry post concept: a wooden pole, usually mounted on private property, facing pedestrians...a box on top with a a glass face and lid...inside a sheet of paper containing a poem or some other artwork.
What a wonderful reminder to pay attention to the world around us. From a bird's morning song, to the calming aroma of Stumptown coffee, to the smile of a stranger. Inspiration is everywhere.
