“John Coltrane is sometimes described as one of jazz’s most influential musicians, but one is hard put to find followers who actually play in his style. Rather, he is influential by example, inspiring musicians to experiment, take chances, and devote themselves to their craft.” ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi (from Pandora)

This just makes me think: You may not be able to see the evidence of your influence inasmuch as others following your exact lead; this does not mean you are not influential. I think sometimes your mere presence allows others to ponder life-changing, freeing possibilities. When coupled with the truth and grace of the gospel…oofh!
