    I love my mornings. Piano to start the day. Play! Find your perfect time to play! For me it is morning. How about you?

    Back to the piano after fasting weekend. I hope you had a chance to play... not like me. But today is a different story at least for me. PLAY!

    Unfortunately, I have to stop doing what I am doing. I took yesterday old piece of material I was playing Canon in C, simplified version, and tried to play it with those soft touches trying to get p and pp and it was somehow almost impossible. More it was unsteady and one note was all right, next not, but then tried again, and those notes I played before right, at least I think they were right, did not sound right. So, I went today to the community center where they have an old piano, but still quite all right and checked: is it only me and my skills or maybe it is piano. And? Well, though I still am on the learning curve, the piano started to respond to me. Way better than my old RUTH. Few questions you might willing to answer ladies and gentlemen:

    So, is there a point of learning on the broken piano? I am sure it is not. But it leads to another question:
    What possibly I can do with the bad piano? Is there anything I could do to not sabotage my effort? What to practice on it?

    I am truly on the quest now to get new piano! It will not be easy but I have to do it. Thanks for any inputs you can share to keep this train going. Thanks. Jaro

    You will buy a Yamaha or a Kawai upright no more than 10 years old. I prefer the Yamaha. That's it and keep going.

    Saturday, I am going to check pianos. Quite a trip but they have plenty. So, I hope I will choose my new friend for the next few years. Still digital, but for sure it will be better than RUTH is. The budget for it will be a bit tricky, but I have already some ideas to make it happen. So, fingers crossed that in the next two weeks or so I will get my new friend. Nice Christmas gift for myself ... and you as well b'cos I believe my motivation to play and practice will rise up a lot. And of course, PLAY today. I will join you when I get my new friend. And again, I need to find the right name for her. I am pretty sure it will be quite easy once I see her.

    By the way, thanks to all of you who helped me so far in reaching this stage of my piano journey. I really appreciate it. I hope one day, in some way, I will repay your kindness. For now, I can only send my warmest thoughts towards you: SENT
