    Brake day for me, or maybe... in the evening if everything will go smoothly, but YOU don't forget to bring a bit JOY to yourself and possibly others (if not now, this could be another step forward to do it in the future) PLAY! HAVE FUN!

    I haven't played in two days (my car needed to be towed and repaired).
    This will be interesting… If it hasn't been too long since you last played, something quite magical happens. Your fingers know what they're doing but your brain has to be reminded about the exact pressures and graspings and the individual (separate) fingers of the hand as they're making sounds. Not quite an out of body experience, but pleasant like that..

    It’s quite an unnatural activity for a human to make sounds with small complex movements and finger sequences (when they all have to be played quite precisely with the feedbacks). How is it done exactly?

    Glenn Gould was asked about fingering and what he practiced in order to remember specific fingerings in the large works. He said he hadn't thought about fingering in decades and he feared that it would be as dangerous as asking a centipede how it walks — and then it wouldn't be able to walk. People would ask him how he did what he did and he would say "I don't know” and "I don't want to know”. His friend said later that he was afraid he might lose facility if he worried too much about it. But he did worry.

    Yes, it is magical... this brain of ours. Actually this is what I study in my free time, the mysteries of our brain and body... connections between those two and how those two learn. Anyway, glad you had some great experience... mystical? Well, that is what any activity does to us, in this particular situation PIANO and MUSIC. Why hesitate to play? Right?

    So, to all, let's touch a bit of magic, maybe today something mysterious will happen. PRACTICE and PLAY! Let's have some FUN!

    Conservatory is the worst place to have your piano in. It is raining and it is SO LOUD that it is hard to hear your own thoughts. SO, I must wait with my time of JOY till it stops raining. But YOU! Well, you may have more comfortable environment for your piano. PLAY! Take advantage of that. Why wait? HAVE LOADS OF FUN!
