A Passion for One Possession

  • There is one possession in my life that I really don’t think I could easily live without.  I would say that I’m even attached to it because the one time I didn’t have one, I went through withdrawal symptoms!  You may not be surprised to know that I’m talking about my piano!  🙂  When I moved from the US to Hong Kong over 10 years ago, I didn’t have a piano for the first couple of months.  I remember finding a piano store, walking in with such elation as though I had finally found a long-lost love.  Playing it brought me such joy and exhilaration.  When I left the store I was in tears as I realized how much I had missed singing and composing on the piano.
    Over the last 10 years I have been composing instrumental pieces and have been encouraged by many friends and especially my husband to get them recorded.  So about a year ago I started the process of practicing them as they are quite intricate pieces.  They have required many hours of practice on the piano to reach a level I’m content with.  It has been a challenging process working on perfecting them but I’m glad to say that I have now completed three of them.  They are mostly in the minor keys which tend to sound more emotional and melodious but I’m working on one of them in the major key too!  I still haven’t decided when to release them but I will definitely keep you posted and will share more about them soon.
