A Thousand Years.
How would you describe that song in one word?
My student is a father of four and he is currently learning to master this piano piece. I was demonstrating how to project a contrast between intensity and breathlessness, at the same time maintaining a gentle touch of the fingers and movement of the wrists.
And what better ways to express the idiom;
"As light as a… ?"
Feather. I wrote on top of his score sheet…
And then Light, next to it.
People change over time, no one can help it.
We try to hold on to how we make each other feel,
But we forget names, and feelings.
We forget shared moments.
Struggling to reconnect we realize that one party feels one way,
and the other never will again.
Shouts, hollers, prodding.
It’s all different now.
It almost is like it never happened.
They weren’t them,
You weren’t you.
Now you just sigh.
Deep, aching sighs.
And remember, tomorrow is a brighter day.
Package still intact, hard to pry open,
We have a new chance.
Just remember to be forgiving,
To yourself and others.

Hi. How are you doing?
This period in my life I am still trying to figure out who I am and what I want. Surviving the “post break-up”; no texts, no calls, no emails - was one of the hardest things I had to go through last year. Not being able to care how he is doing, where he is or who he’s with, and with random people coming up to you, telling you he was with this woman or that woman. It got to a point where it took a lot of therapy, acceptance and rediscovering yourself.
It wasn’t easy but as time goes by, that’s when you know.
You start to let go and not look back.

Never wait for anyone.
Becaus you’ll only wind up getting yourself hurt.
And that’s not worth it.
