Inspiration Is Like A Ship In A Bottle

During a conversation I had this flash about the challenge of expressing an idea:

The inspiration comes all of a sudden, landing fully formed with a thud.  I can see and touch the fine details. It’s beautiful, like a ship inside of a bottle.

The challenge is to extract that ship from the bottle through the narrow, constricted neck using only the communication tools at hand, without breaking anything.

If I don’t quickly attempt to extract my idea, it dissolves into nothingness.

Inspiration only lasts a moment. If you don’t capture it right away, it’s gone.
