Favorite Photo of the Day: On the Keyboard


I love this photo!  It reminds me of my almost forgotten talent... playing the piano.  When my Mom was still in Saudi Arabia, she gave me a mini piano, it was a Casio, a super mini version of a keyboard.  I would play music without even looking at the notes (I don't even know what notes are), I was about 7 years old, I just play whatever music I hear.  My first self-taught piece was Happy Birthday and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star followed and almost all the nursery rhymes that a kid knows.  My grandma saw that I have this thing about music so when I was in high school she enrolled me for a piano lesson.  I joined two piano recitals then and my pieces were Ballade Pour Adeline by Olivier Toussaint and Paul de Senneville, Vera's Theme, Somewhere in Time by John Barry and Roger Williams and Valentine by Jim Brickman.  I would practice every afternoon after school and my great grandfather would sit on the sofa to watch me practice and he would sometimes fall asleep. 

I suddenly miss my piano.  I miss my childhood.

Even at young age of two, Lance is already showing interest in music but not in playing the piano yet.  He loves to sing, he always hum tunes from his favorite Barney DVDs.
