Another quote

I must be on a roll...

I found this one from Mary Oliver over at Kat's Paws today:
I keep a notebook with me all the time - and I scribble.... You begin to get your felt reaction in a phrase, perhaps. But, you know, I've said before that the angel doesn't sit on your shoulder unless the pencil's in your hand. ... And in truth that [is only] given after years of desiring it, being open to it, and walking toward it.
I think "the pencil's in your hand" could easily be replaced by "you're at your instrument" for musicians :)
