To make something beautiful

Q: What do we need to make something beautiful?

A: I had a quote taped to my wall as a teenager, by Ray Bradbury. It said something like, “If you wait long enough, and stuff your eyes with different shapes, sizes and colours, the gumball machine in your head lends you gifts at the drop of a penny.” I like that. I think it works for music, too. Seek out beauty wherever you can find it, and while you’re busy living life, all these different ingredients will bubble on the back burner of a busy mind. If you make time and space for it, it will re-emerge in your actions, in how you laugh, in the things you make.
