Where do your ideas come from?

I try to be on the lookout for ideas the whole time, eyes open, ears open, absolutely anything might give you an idea. So anything you've seen or heard, perhaps you see a film which gives you an idea, maybe you meet someone who gives you an idea, anything like that I try to do, but also very often I'm just a little bit like children in schools, people will ask for a poem and I don't have any ideas at all to start with. I just have to get a blank piece of paper and really make myself start thinking and scribble down anything to get started and hopefully the ideas will then come if you work at it.
