Let's Do Something Remarkable

Jilda and I were invited to take part in a creative (musical) think tank. We had our first meeting last month and it was delightful. 
It seemed like a meeting of the minds. We sat around in a circle and played some of our songs. We shared information about festivals, coffee houses, open mics, and other venues.
We talked about inspiration, and our approach to writing songs.
When Jilda and I left, we were both buzzing like we'd been sniffing nitrous oxide. 
We promptly set up writing appointments with other members who were at the meeting. We've written four songs in a month. 
I wasn't sure if the gathering had an effect on the other attendees until we met tonight at our house.
Jilda had whipped up some amazing brownies, some cheese, crackers, chips, salsa, and some fruit.
Everyone in attendance had written at least one new song. 
I sat with my eyes closed and listened as the guitar passed from hand to hand and we sang our new songs.
We've been kicking around the idea of a mission statement. My votes goes to:
Let's Do Something Remarkable
