It’s as if my house is filled with light. I come home and colors are more vivid, sounds more brilliant, and smells more delicious. I am filled with contentment; the message ‘everything will be alright’ beats through me. I love coming home, particularly because home is filled with music.
One of the very first things I did after getting back to MN (after I went on a run with Dad, the dogs, and Cale, and after I ran into the house to give Mom a big sweaty hug!) was to lift the piano lid, sit down and play, letting the music spin around me. I have an electric piano in MS, but it just isn’t the same as the real thing. After playing piano, I played guitar with Dad.
Today, I’m going to leave you all with the first piece I sat down to play. It’s glorious. Of course, there are about a bazillion I’d like to leave with you, but this one has some wonderful parts. So relax, sit back, and enjoy some beautiful music.
Oh, and uh…before y’all start getting crazy ideas, I don’t play it near as well as this dude ;)
I’m feeling uncreative with blogging today, but still feel I should post, so instead of writing something I’ll leave you with a video of Piglet and her first time in snow. It didn’t snow much this winter, but both Pig and Pre like it when it did.
Ira Glass on storytelling, watch it, all four parts.
