“The Piano collects dust as lovingly as it does memories…”

-Kathryn Dawson

Those of you whom have been following the blog since the first month of the 365 blogging back in 2012, will remember this post at the end of January when I said goodbye to the Piano that had been in my life (and my bedroom) for over sixteen years. Having survived over a year without being able to go and play whatever I liked in times of stress or just times when I needed relaxation, I decided that it had been long enough!
