I'm so happy right now (which you probably couldn't tell at all, based on my title)
You see, I play piano. I've been playing since I was 7. I have a very interesting relationship with it. It's like that best friend that you've known forever, and sometimes you drift apart and don't speak for months, but when you finally do get together again, it's like nothing has changed, only you're happy to be together again. That's how I feel.
I haven't played for months. Before my piano lessons ended for the summer, I practiced my lesson music a couple times a week (which is the bare minimum really; I'm so lazy), but I never played for fun. Like I never played any music that I love, or for the enjoyment. Honestly, I don't think I've enjoyed it for a whole year.
It's back though. It came back in this little reunion through a song known as "Let It Be" by the Beatles. I sat down today and played for the first time this summer, and I just felt so happy. I didn't want to get up until I learned the first page perfectly, and I did!
I'm thinking maybe I should try writing a song using my piano. I don't know if it'd work, because I've never written a song before, but I really want to try. I feel like that break I took from it really helped me realize a lot. I'm really so grateful to be able to play such an amazing instrument.
