Diversion Precedes Inspiration
We are inspired with creative energy when we divert ourselves from what we attempt to accomplish. I experienced inspiration when I got up from the piano, where I struggled to compose music, and prepared to walk to the co-op to pick up evening dinner. As I headed out the door, an idea landed. I dropped my grocery list and returned to the piano. Song lyrics jelled in my mind. Since inspiration may be fleeting, I wanted to capture my idea before it was lost.
