What I have found in the few short sessions that we’ve done so far is that I’m getting at least as much inspiration and motivation from talking with Katy as she is from me. I’ve always loved sharing what I know because formulating my ideas and getting them out so that someone else can understand and benefit from them makes me really think things through. This process is crucial, especially in the fast-paced, ever-changing world in which we live. Ideas and strategies get outdated so fast and replaced by new ones, and constant re-evaluation keeps me one step ahead. I hope!
The process of sharing inspiration is a beautiful thing. It’s cool that two people can come together and make each other better at what they do by merely talking things through. That’s a powerful thing. But even more powerful is the effect that can have on the larger world. You see, when we get inspired we glow. We radiate an energy that is palpable to those around us. Even if they never know why we are glowing and radiating, they can feel it. And often that’s all one needs to get inspired ourselves. Then I pass it to you, you pass it to someone else, and little by little, one person at a time, we send that inspiration out into the world.
This is how change happens. One person at a time. One thought at a time. How exciting is that???
I’m going to pour my inspiration into everything I do today. Hopefully those I come into contact with will feel it and pass it on.
What’s inspiring you today?
P.S. – Katy played me a few tunes from her forthcoming CD, due out in September on Pony Boy Records. It sounds amazing!! Katy’s band is made up of some of Seattle’s finest jazz players, including, Randy Halberstadt, Doug Miller, Chris Spencer and Steve Korn. They are swingin’ hard on the CD and Katy has never sounded better! I hope to convince Katy to share some of this great music with you soon…for now you can hear some of her former recordings here.
