~~The 50's & a Little Marco Polo Piano~~
okay - it's not easy getting another year older, or is it? No, really, it's not so bad.
I've been another year older for a whole week now & I'm getting use to it.
Doesn't feel any different really. I can even say it - I'm 53 now ~ wow.
March 2, 1955 - but my dad reminds me almost every year - it's also "Texas Independence Day" & hey, that's important too & I usually think of that first!
I'm happy, I'm healthy, & I'm ready for every new year to come ~~ bring 'em all on. I have a happy warm cozy home & a tremendous amount of love in my life.
I had a sweet, calm, simple, celebration~ music to my ears. I was given a piece of my childhood that I've missed ~ to play the piano again. It's an amazing small size so it doesn't take up much room in our little cottage. Didn't even know they made "real" pianos this little ~ but it surely is a real piano. There are a few less keys since it's smaller but like my mom says - who uses the keys on the ends of a piano?....I never have so this one is just right for me!
I am happily sonatina-ing away on the keys every day now & my fingertips are working hard to recall Clair 'de Lune - my favorite on the piano because my mom has played it since I was a little girl.
I discovered Craig's List just recently, through my sister & from seeing other bloggers with great finds. So when I didn't want to get too serious about a piano (meaning not to spend much $$ ~ just something I could play) I went to Craig's List for the first time ever & found just what I was looking for to celebrate another year ~~ this little Marco Polo cutie just down the road - for $50. Thanks TZ for bringing music to our cottage!
It's a "cute as a button" birthday piano & I adore it!
