Perhaps you have cabin fever after a long hard winter indoors. It almost seems that you are thinking too much. I agree with Ed, sometimes we just need to take out the camera and take photographs and forget about all the motivations. Enjoy the moments, from the planning stage to the printing stage.
As I stated in the "style " thread, let someone else with more time on their hands figure out style and archetypes and motivational theories. I'm getting too much enjoyment taking pictures.
As for images that speak to the majority of us, I almost exclusively, photograph faces. The universal language of facial expression.
