INSPIRATION comes from strange places- go there

This weekend I went to the Levittown Memorial Day fair:
    Bought one of these three items in red from the food stand below.  Watched kids, including my own, play for stuffed animals. Listened to punk/grunge teen-age rockers and picked out their groupies in the crowd, the girls wearing short skits and torn tights and combat boots in the 90 degree heat.  Watched an old man in his marine uniform in his metal folding chair at the center of the crowd tap his feet to another tune in his head.  He was happy.  I was too.  I could have stayed there all night because I could feel my brain writing the scenes.   I don't know what scenes yet, but that will come.  So, the advice: go, explore, see the world, even if it's the world right there in your own background.
