„Inspiration comes from many places — experiences, places, people, books, and the work of other artists.“

—  Dawud Wharnsby, The Sounds of Taqwa (2006), Context: Inspiration comes from many places — experiences, places, people, books, and the work of other artists. As a writer, it is important to keep one’s senses open to the world around and then trying to capture those impressions to a page. Writing is sort of a game or puzzle to me — playing with words and concepts to present something new to listeners.
