Creation begins with inspiration. Inspiration triggers passion, and passion fosters creation
Being inspired is inspirational and allows others to find meaning in your words and resonance in your story, reflecting harboured desires and buried secrets. Inspiration brings to light what lurks in the dark and shines its light radiantly on issues we need to confront to fully embrace our humanity.
Inspiration shows us what it is like to be human, gives hope and allows us to see past the obvious and illuminates the endless possibilities there are to tell our stories.

When Oscar Wilde saw a painting of the Biblical Princess Salome, it inspired him to write the dramatic play Salome. The play inspired Richard Strauss to compose the opera Salome, using music and the medium of opera to express the tragic story. Eccentric filmmaker Ken Russell took the subject matter of Salome and made the controversial film Salome’s Last Dance, setting the story the brothel where Wilde was arrested for gross indecency, with prostitutes and young lovers performing the play Salome to Wilde. Wilde was sent to prison for two years’ hard labour for his unruly lifestyle.
In 1897, in prison, he wrote De Profundis, which was published in 1905, a long letter which discusses his spiritual journey through his trials, forming a dark counterpoint to his earlier philosophy of pleasure.
