the translative energy of good art

art, palette iconWhat have you made that you take the most pride in?

Do you remember what it was that inspired you to create something like it? If not, where does creativity come from?

For me, there are a few songs I have written that have given me more satisfaction than anything else I have created. When I think about them or play them, a sense of relief comes over me as if it was a song that really needed to come into existence and I was the one to do it.

When I think about inspirations for some of these songs, I can’t help but consider the works of Rich Mullins, Rob Bell, Brian McLaren, Seth Godin, Malcolm Gladwell, David Bazan, and Derek Webb.

Interesting that not all of these names are of musicians.

Good art, much like energy, has a way of translating.
