This hat is a celebration of inspiration and the beauty of creativity.

“Inspiration is a reminder. It is a reinforcement. It is a remembrance. It represents that greater truth of your life that is calling you to recognize it, to accept it and to embrace it.” From the book, Wisdom from the Greater Community Book 2, the chapter entitled Inspiration
