It was thought that the gods blew on creative people, who would then inhale the god's breath and have an idea. This is the premise of "inspiration": inhaling divine breath and ideas.

E for Echo...

The cool breeze hit my face yet again. It seemed to play with my hair pulling it in different directions. I had given up fighting against it. My mind like my body ceased to respond. I was trying to fully absorb the ecstasy of nature, for that is my only timepass. Tall trees danced harmoniously to the song of the wind, the leaves seemed to add to the chorus with their crisp voice. I closed my eyes and continued to listen to the songs of nature...

The River flew graciously all around me. Her path remains unchanged since times immemorial. Each pebble and grain of sand on her path feel her majestic presence as she encompasses them along. Her face is bright and radiates with a composure of a Goddess. She knows the end of her journey is close as she joins the sea. The fishes and water snakes hasten to kiss her feet, and the water lilies decorate her path...

I remain silent. From the bottom of my heart I muster the courage to bid farewell to the river, no sound is heard. I fail again. My hands pass along the blades of thick grass... my ears search a voice. So that I can be a shadow for that voice, for I am Echo.
