Now for retraining my fingers to make music and not just noise, because of working full time being so busy has prevented me from keeping up my practice. When I first began High School, my parents arranged that I take piano lessons. There was an ulterior motive because within 18 months I was playing for the hymns at church. Decades later I bought a small organ and traded up twice to this model. Again I took lessons and was able to play well enough that people did not leave the room.

I received a parcel today, all the way from America. A clearance sale catalogue, a tourist map of New Hampshire, USA (if only I could go) and a pattern for oven-gloves. Also in the parcel was a piece of Insul-ating fabric. I just love relaxing with a catalogue and a coffee. I read in someone's blog that you cannot underestimate the importance of being fully caffinated. I do my best for thee coffee farmers everywhere.
