Inspiration is so hard to come by, and so easy to lose; but when it DOES come, it comes from such unexpected places!
So not long after my last post, I found myself again complaining to a friend of mine about the piece I was working on, and how frustrated I was with my inability to play it. The frustration would quicly cause me to put my instrument down and walk away for a day or two. And it ended like this:
