The Music of Meaning


Children take
What children take
And with the force
Of nature’s triumphs and mistakes
Become what they become

Rebirth begun in nurture’s wake
Once joy and sorrow are adult
With natural recourse awakes
Sensational reclaim of self
Mothering’s escape

With change of pace
The grace to change
More pain and wonderment to come
Remember death is certain
Art’s remit to make it happen

What goodness comes makes goodness last
Whatever evil put past


A piano, even a small upright, is awfully heavy, but putting it on its back is sometimes necessary.

Need to install new rubber casters to replace the old metal ones that are seized and would ruin the floor ?

With the right tool, one man can manage easily.

In this case, the goal was to install a permanent dolly so the piano could be moved around the room.

My friend has a special relation to the musical score. He scrutinizes it and finds answers, meaning, understanding. His interpretation and his teaching benefit from this curiosity, this study.

When reading the paper edition got too difficult, he had this system installed.

All the music he wants to work on has been downloaded from music-scores.com and is kept locally on the dedicated computer as PDF. The large tv screen hooked up to this computer provides a well-contrasted image that he can enlarge at will with the wireless mouse.

As a bonus, all the internet is available to find an inspiring performance on Youtube or some biographical notes on the composer of the work in progress.
