I grew up playing the piano since 4 years old . I remember the relationship I developed with all the runs of the notes, dynamics , interpretation and articulation delivered by my fingers that it was how the music played spoke to us. This is where I understood at such a age that it’s medicine to my soul.
Life wasn’t easy growing up for our home , there was lots of challenges to find your peace and your outlet to bear all things and to go through it all .
I see similar to the other passion I love in my life such as my Yoga and my cancer nurse, those challenges, struggles, disturbed days were strengthening practices for then, today and the many today thereafter to follow to appreciate everything life is and to listen, see, feel just how far we can also overcome unhealthy situation and turn it into something soothingly beautiful.
During my childhood and adult days, this was my therapy, the piano.
Always running to the ivories to soothe pain, discomfort to allow the harmonious blend of notes to heal wounds for every occasions in our lives. It was and still is The universal language of love, life, forgiveness, understanding and healing. my classical music score such as Chopin, Rach, Liszt, Mendelssohn got me through many hours of practice, playing tears and joys into my life My ashtanga yoga practice my saving grace to my early cancer stage , today and the many today thereafter will forever be my Medicine.
My cancer nurse work my epiphany to witnessing life is precious everyday and this is my medicine to embrace human kindness, generosityto humanity. Never take life for granted as I say hello and goodbye to someone nearly every week for 15 years now.
today, I give my fingers a break from classical pieces until I practice them a bit , instead a simple version Adele relaxes my evening here in paradise.
It’s been awhile feels good to reconnect with the keys. 🎹
