As I have explained a few times in earlier blogs, I love learning. From learning to cook, learning to sew, latch hook, speak Spanish, or even playing video games or putting together computers… I just love to learn. So when given the prompt that I must learn something for four hours each week the next several weeks, I was excited yet perplexed. I want to learn so much. How could I possibly narrow it down to one thing I wanted to learn?
I spent hours this week asking myself, what am I passionate about? What makes my heart leap when I think about learning it? It has taken me down 10 different roads, a thousand rabbit trails, and many many different possibilities. Then, I was taken back to my childhood. From a young age I fell in love with the way the piano sounds. My grandmother had a piano in her living room and I loved to listen to her play. I always imagined that someday I would play for my children the way she played for us. For this reason I have decided that I will spend the next several weeks learning to play piano.
I have some minor knowledge on the keys and hand placement. However, that is the extent of my understanding. I am quite privileged though, as my teacher will be my wonderful husband-to-be. I am excited for the bonding time this will give us, and the adventure it will spark in my eager mind as I learn the art of playing piano! Stay tuned readers, there is more to come from this!
