- Sending a trumpet blast from a jazz band would set your teeth on edge. He knows you would not listen.
- Sending a full orchestra would paint the contrast too stark. You would only compare. Comparison steals your joy.
- Sending even a worship tune would build a wall in your heart that no joy could crack,
…but the surprising, quiet hum from an insignificant, diminutive wonder can hover just fleeting enough and land just long enough to bend the corners of your mouth toward the maker, and your heart flies with it.
The core of inspiration lies not in pulling the new idea out of a hat, but in pairing two distant things, and finding their connection.
