Growing down

I have just been watching a series of young musical performers on a site called Flixxy, an alternative to YouTube that was new to me. One example can be found at http://www.flixxy.com/trumpet-solo-melissa-venema.htm. I was reminded as I watched of the notion that we grown down – from heaven – not up. Judy Garland and Elvis Presley along with Mozart are among the many examples of individuals who seem to have come into our world with their talents already fully-formed. They came to give; not to get. We can only stand in awe and wonder from what celestial realm these children came. And what that tells us about the world in which we live.
