Piano Day!

Today was Piano Day. I love Piano Day.

Here's how Piano Day went. I wrote all morning, then I practiced for an hour before heading to Asheville. Went to Zen Sushi for lunch and more writing. Then went to piano.

I had a GREAT piano lesson. Oh, what a difference it makes when one has time to practice. Deborah had some really nice comments on my playing--comments I needed to hear after so many months of so little progress.

I really love where I am with the pieces right now: I have a lot to learn, and a long way to go, but I have a definite sense that I'm learning and improving--both on the pieces themselves and as a pianist in general.

I'm supposed to be working on an essay tonight, plus an editing job, but it's sooo tempting to just set all the writing-stuff aside and go lock myself into the Inner Sanctum for a few hours with George.

It doesn't help that I have developed a serious crush on Franz Liszt. It doesn't matter that he's a dead composer. In fact, it's probably better that he's a dead composer, since I'm a happily married woman and all. :)

OK. I'm going to steal a couple of hours with Bach and Liszt, and then I'll work on my writing.
