      My name is Steinway PianoHands
      The piano keys are my digits
      Whites and blacks live side by side 
      In harmony through my touch
      I perform finger ballet dancing
      Steps of crisp lightning octaves
      Everest scales climbing heights
      Arpeggios graced in skipping leaps
      Schubert sings through my soul
      With a voice that captivates
      and enraptures all the sweet
      longings of living loveliness
      Bach takes a turn of the notes
      With intricacies going for Baroque
      That Well tempered thing needs
      a special tuning for equal sonorities
      Beethoven onstage hears aurally
      without ears offering Fur Elise
      His Moonlight sonata moves
      Rock hardened souls to tears
      Tchaikovshy makes poignancy
      Into emotions sought after
      Like lovers bathing in tears of
      Enrapturing erotic embrace
      Stavinsky has Rites that Spring
      Dancers onto the stage of life
      The puppet Petrouska no longer
      Has strings to make him frown
      My name is Steinway PianoHands
      I take encore after encore
      performing ubiquitously for
      Hearts craving divine cohesion

      The strength and passion  of the attached message is something we should remember forever.  It is truly a wonderful and touching work of art by just another human being in New York City.  It may take a few minutes to download the presentation, but the wait will be amply rewarded when you see it,  and I suspect it will put some things into perspective for those of us who are so consumed with our daily lives and well being.

      Be well and take care!

      This one doesn't require patience. Listen to the piano in the

      Regarding relationships, on another list i wrote:
      Over 50% of marriages end in divorce - which
      means the amount of unhappy relationships is way higher.
      A fact of life for which can't be changed.
      The conclusion to draw from that will vary - from
      refraining from relationships to continuing unhappy
      ones. The similarity with "seeking behavior" isn't a coincidence.

      Memory is but a record of events.
      Without stimulus the act of finding can't be remembered.
      No feelings asking to be gratified, no thoughts running,
      nothing "pops up" even while memory is intact
      and senses are functioning.

      That could be called "peace"...
