don't stop believin...

if there is something that instantly puts me in a good mood,
it is listening to my children play music.
my daughter knows me well,
the minute she starts playing
she knows i'm smiling... 
if not on my face, definitely in my heart

journey's 'don't stop believin'
her latest, favourite piano score...
the melody is so sweeeeet

our piano is an ancient upright that
we purchased shortly after my daughter was born.
it needs annual tuning but all the work is worth it because it is capable of quite a range.

we are blessed because our little miss loves pounding on its' ivory keys.
we are doubly lucky because she practises without prompting, 
learning to play her pieces with emotion,
continually restarting when she makes an error.

all the while, 
my heart fills with glee !



  1. Music is such an elixir - my daughter plays too. When she plays Charlie Brown theme I smile all day long!

  2. Oh how I would love to hear her play. I love music, a definite way to bring a smile to my face.

  3. we have an ancient upright that sounds pretty good. When my daughter plays it is loud and dramatic classical music. When my son plays it's smooth quiet gentle music. Both are good to hear :) Love the photos and your snippet of life!

  4. Both my sons are musicians, so I know the wonderful joy of listening to them play :0) our old piano was the same old one that needed constant was a sad day when we had to let it go .


thank you for your kind words... they really do make my day !!!
