As you may have noticed from my last post, I've been feeling kind of down about my lack of musical achievements of late. Also pessimistic about my ability to turn that around. Opportunities abound. Barriers to opportunities also abound. My motivation to find my way around the latter to get to the former have been low.
Today I practiced. It was the first time in a week or so that my fingers made contact with keys. When I finished, my outlook was a little better. Not so much for my ability to overcome the barriers, but for my worth as a human being. Music is something I can do. Okay, I haven't found a vast audience to hear us play. Music is still something I can do.
