…the notes from the piano….
I sat perfectly still, my eyes closed, my breathing steady, at once calm and excited by the notes from the piano. Amazing how just a few notes could warm my heart as they did. I smiled and opened my eyes to watch the performance, following the player’s fingers as they pressed and released the keys. I could see the concentration written on her face.
When she finished playing the piece, I clapped heartily. Then I went and hugged her.
“Well done! That was lovely,” I said. “I really enjoyed it.”
The first piece of music my daughter had learnt to play on the piano.
