Last night capped off a busy week at the piano. All the churches in Garner got together for a concert of individual choir selections and ending with this mass choir singing The Battle Hymn of the Republic. It gave me goosebumps!
On Sunday morning I played for church and our choir.
On Friday morning I played for a funeral at our church. On Friday afternoon I played for the monthly birthday party at the care center and last Wednesday I played at Prairie View senior apartments for their monthly birthday party and at night I played for choir practice.
It’s been a busy piano week and because I’m playing so much I knew that 50 years of music needed sorting and organizing so I didn’t waste so much time looking for selections. Here’s what I’m doing today on a chilly Monday —looking through music and sorting through it all.
Oh, brother, what a job! Then I stop and play some which gets me off track. I recently picked up some old sheet music from the 30’s and 40’s which is really fun not only to play but to look at.
I have sewed very little in the last week but I have worked in the yard and played the piano.When people see my swollen, misshapen, crooked hands, they wonder how I can play but I tell them that if I didn’t play, my hands would become stiff claws. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Ha!
