Unexpected Brilliance

Sometimes creativity and satisfaction comes from unforeseen places.

As an example, I share this with you, from my friend Peggy, a bookseller and otherwise extraordinary person.



How many people on that stage grew up thinking, "I want to be really good at playing pop bottles when I grow up!" ??

I'm guessing the answer is "zero." And yet, given the opportunity, there they are, doing it well, having a great time, and giving the world a smile.

Sometimes the creative comes from the unexpected--playing around, meandering, exploring a trail to its end. And sometimes, people smile when you get there. Can't beat that!
