    last part of calming the mind for me (found great place to finish my brake). No phone, no PC, no internet, no distractions -> only nature, book, sun, lake and sounds of nature! That is last part of my brake before I will be back with daily posts and FINALLY piano next to me. So, stay focus on your challenge, your journey and PLAY! PRACTICE! HAVE FUN WITH YOUR TOY! I will join you next Saturday! Hungry already to play. I hope you can consume already that treat piano is. PLAY!
    See you in more or less one week time Till then... SILENCE here from my side

    It is great to be back. With quite a journey due to all the limitations we have these days but finally at home and most important with access to my PIANO I start tomorrow again: today sleep after 20+ hours drive and sleeping in the car. But you may want to play a bit: PLAY! and ENJOY!

    Ps. Dimace you asked
    And, how the FFFF have you written your post???
    Well, I was there for two days with my brother, and drove back there. Used that time to update and then just enjoyed the time with nature

    . Certainly it is not English

    I was hoping that English was your second language so that we could talk about how you learned English and if it's the same - or at least applicable to learning to play effortlessly. I don't know if it is, but the people I talk to who are multilingual tell me that there's steps involved in which you have breakthrough feelings of accomplishment and it's all very mysterious how it happens. The same thing seems to happen in a piano student after about three or four years.

    Of course, I can share my experience. First I was learning English at school High school and University. To be honest, though I liked that language I wasn't perfect student. I did just enough to have quite good grades and nothing more. But then I had to use English when I was doing my engineering job and at one particular moment I've noticed that I need to pay more attention to it. So I did for three months after work for 3-4 hours I was learning from books and had quite a jump in using it (first mysterious moment - not really though, it was a result of hours spent learning - same I guess will be with PIANO) that let me leave my country and travel while working in many countries and continents. At that stage I was using it all the time. At this stage I as well decided not to use my first language at all (only when I was talking to my family - it was quite easy b'cos I was abroad) So, learning and talking to my work colleagues from Germany, China, France, Austria, Italy etc. I was picking accents from around the world but as well for fun I was learning from my favourite TV series at that time "Friends".( another mysterious moment and improvement) I also tried to think only in English. And I am trying to do it right now as well. (another mysterious moment occured) To quickly assume: There were few moments when something strange/good happened when my English moved quite forward. First learning it quite a lot made a difference. Then speaking only English did another jump forward. Then thinking only in English did a job... at some point I could easily switch both languages my first and English without any effort. No translation form one to another just speaking in one I chose to. Now it is sometimes quite funny when I know some vocabulary in English and I miss some words in my first language. But I am still not good enough in English. I could do better. Maybe I will spend some time to learn a bit more grammar and vocabulary. I know it will good to me. Fire some questions I will be glad to share more with you if that helps you. I think, that amount of time we put into what we like to do like piano, languages, sport or any other craft or activity, will make the difference and will deliver those moments of mysterious roots. But maybe it is just hours we put there to make things happen... and in this way we are back to PIANO.

    To all who reads those posts:
    Breaks are great... but my fingers need some time to go back in shape they were before loooong brake. Anyway it was pleasure to play again those Hanons, Scales and Sonatina today. I missed playing. So, if you haven't done your session for today DO IT NOW! I can't tell you how much FUN it delivers once you reach even my level of playing (it was hard at the beginning of the journey sometimes). Now, though there is loads of work/practice/learning to be done, there is COUNTLESS AMOUNT OF FUN to get from doing it. Do not wait to long: PLAY!!! Give yourself some great time with PIANO or any instrument you play. Again: PLAY!

    Your English is just fine. Here we aren't a linguistic forum. Instead of writing essays, keep on practicing.

    Simple choice: to play today or not to play to today. I chose to play. How about you? Why wait? PLAY!

    Let's do what is necessary as soon as possible with our daily tasks to win some time for our PIANO practice. Once it's done we all will PLAY, PRACTICE and HAVE FUN of course in front of our instruments (PIANO in my case ) PLAY TODAY AGAIN!

    Our philosophies are far apart, so I'm curious how well you'll do.

    I remember why I prefer teaching youngsters. You impress them with your playing and they listen to your approach.

    You are right. Funny thing is that further I go, more I discover, I am still just at the beginning of this journey...

    Yes, I remember about video. I am working on that first sonatina still... soon my friend... soon.

    1000 miles to walk to reach our goals, it is only up to us how quickly we get there, it is only up to us when we start walking... Same with Piano it is only up to us when we start playing to go through those 1000 miles... on the way there are many beautiful sights... it is time to ENJOY it simply by doing another step forward: PLAY! HAVE FUN! There are loads of things to discover! Get closer to them PLAY!
