I mostly write in Ruby and JS, but I'd love to take the opportunity to do something totally different. I'd gladly take suggestions. I think I'm more concerned with tooling than language preferences, so something with good support and stable community that will allow me to have an enjoyable experience developing on my Mac.

Haxe's syntax is pretty close to Javascript, and it's easy to get it up and running on a Mac (although the homebrew install didn't work well for me, had to download it and its dependencies myself).

Also, if you're feeling extra inspired, make sure to check this out: ;-)

And if you're ever uninspired, reading books like The making of Prince of Persia or Masters of Doom helps a great deal with that :-)
