Over the long weekend, I happened to brave the crowds with my oldest son. We visited a local fancy shopping mall on one of the biggest shopping days of the year, Black Friday.

As usual, I dropped by the Apple Store. They had an interesting display of Santa on a giant iPad, with app icons floating down from the sky like snowflakes. And echoing that theme were app icons suspended from the ceiling, as if also floating down from the sky.

It wasn’t one of their best displays, but it had enough interesting twists to make me want to share it to you.

So, as you go through your daily life, keep your eyes and ears open to discover what you can find that will give you inspiration. Look in places you don’t normally look. Listen to radio stations you normally avoid. Pause and smell the roses. You might be surprised at what new ideas you find!
