corner view :: something difficult
|Instagram Photo | 10 March 2015|
When I first met with the piano teacher in January, knowing a few things about me she expected that I had at least some knowledge of music: after all, most Americans experience some form of music education during the K-12 school years; after all, I am married to a music educator (who has changed career paths after nearly 25 years of teaching music in schools); after all, I do have a ten-year-old daughter who is proving to be quite musical; after all, I am an avid supporter of the arts; after all, I hail from Louisiana, just outside of New Orleans.
Nope. Nothing. Nada. Zero. I started from the beginning.
We are moving forward, slowly, but let me assure you that this is one of the most difficult endeavors I have undertaken... quite possibly, EVER. Maybe the only thing more difficult for me were the first several months of being a new mother. Maybe.
Making my fingers on both hands do what my eyes read and my mind commands, keeping it all in sync, while maintaining some type of beat or rhythm...oh, my. I've read that challenging your mind as an adult wards off dementia. No chance of dementia here, my friends.
