Hello, hello! This Wednesday I am really excited to share with you my ‘Foto der Woche‘, because I really can’t stop smiling. I think I haven’t been as excited about something in quite a while. Without further ado, I present you my Glücklichmacher #6
Keyboard (taken on February 9, 2014)
You might not know this about me, but I play the piano. I took lessons from when I was 10 until I was 25 and then I practically stopped playing ‘cold-turkey’, because I moved to the US and didn’t have my piano anymore. I started learning to play on an old piano that my parents had bought because I wouldn’t stop bugging them about wanting to learn how to play the piano. Later, I bought myself a Yamaha piano when I was 18 (I had saved up for it and it was a lot of money at the time for me) and now it sits at my parents’ house and I only get to see (and play) it when I am there to visit once a year.
The truth is: I miss my piano and I miss playing it. So, fast-forward to somewhere before Christmas when I mentioned to my (neighbor-)friend that I am so excited to go home and play my piano and she casually mentions that she has a keyboard sitting in her closet and that it is “not quite a piano, but better than nothing” and that she was willing to lend it to me for an indefinite period of time. I couldn’t believe what I was being offered! I set up the keyboard last weekend and what can I say: I am the happiest!
