Tickling The Ivories


LOL! I finally get to use the word fingering in a post, and it has nothing to do with sex.

Good people, I am taking a piano class this semester. I needed to do five classes in order to maintain my full-time status, and I decided to follow my heart, and signed up for piano. At time, this class, is a frustrating and humbling experience. However, this class is then followed by moments of empowerment and connection to the divine. I am eternally grateful for it.

Today was my first quiz and I did fairly well. I played Ode To Joy by Beethoven. I love that piece, and know it so well. So if my fingering failed me, my ears would pick up the slack.

I used to joke and tell people if I got married again, I'd have that played when I walked down the aisle. That really would make it all about me, wouldn't it? LOL

Congratulations on doing well and for following your dream!

Darling Joy, if you ever choose to get married again, have that music played. Your beloved would be lucky to have you.

Allan, congrats on your triumphs, you are tackling something I've wanted to do for many years, but keep putting off.
