I was sitting on the plane waiting, waiting for a maintenance problem to be fixed.
My neighbour was more cheerful than me. She had her earphones in and was already enjoying the music. She began to sing under her breath, completely oblivious to the fact that although the rest of us could not hear the soundtrack, we could definitely hear her version of it. I recognised the tune. It was “You’ve got a friend”.
I found it hard not to join in.
Maybe the spiritual life is like this. The music may not be heard directly but we pass it on anyway in the way we lead our lives – and the music is sweet!
