Jennifer Lin performed on Oprah and amazed me (along with Oprah and probably everyone else in the audience that day). Like Emily Bear in yesterday's post, Jennifer is a piano prodigy (she is 16, so about 10 years older than Emily) who composes melodies on the spot, and plays them with a concentrated flow of fingers and heart, both dancing in perfect harmony. As with Emily, a large part of the inspiration that Jennifer evokes comes from her own joy as she plays. Perhaps that is why we say that people play music; the joy of music is like the joy of play and both are intricately linked.
To more linking of people who love to share their joy as they play; maybe one day Emily and Jennifer will play in concert and make the whole world smile as brightly as they do.
