For a musician, there are few things as difficult as selecting the right group of musicians to spend hundreds, and sometimes thousands of hours working together to create and polish music. Liken the task to putting a beautiful and complex puzzle together; but not the way we all learned growing up (starting with the edges and corners and working your way to the middle), build this puzzle starting in the center. This puzzle started by sifting through dozens of pieces, some of which looked to fit pretty good, to find five pieces that fit together perfectly. You can try and force mismatching pieces to fit together, but ultimately the puzzle will not end up being what it was meant become. Finding these select pieces can take a long time, perhaps you even find pieces to a different puzzle you initially wanted to put together, and might consider building that puzzle instead. But with enough hard work and patience, you will find those select pieces to start to create the picture you had in mind.
We have five puzzle pieces, which fit beautifully together at the center of a beautiful picture. When looking at these five pieces by themselves, you can tell they are part of something special--something far greater than just themselves. One looking at the group of them together might not be able to see what the whole picture around them looks like. But ultimately, as additional pieces are added to the five core pieces, you begin to see just how beautiful the picture can be. Here's to spending the time and effort to finding the right pieces, to make the picture everything it was meant to become!!!
