Classical music. Love it.
Sick as a child the kitchen radio became my bedside companion.
Stuck on the Classical music station?
You'd think so when I was listening.
G’Pa moved in bringing his record player
with 75 rpm records. Classical.
I conducted as music played.
Piano lessons. Learned a lot. Encouraging parents.
Music degree. Teaching in private school putting hubby through medical school.
Older. Homeschooling four children over time.
Teaching piano lessons.
Tired, really tired.

Mozart, Sonata in D for two pianos.
Do you like this?
Started practicing during my 5 am slot before kids got up.
Loved the music. A gift from God I know.
Therapy, music therapy, Mozart therapy.
Played it with the giver. Spirits lifted.
