Starting My Piano Studio

All the interesting aspects of starting a piano studio. Figuring out policies and rules. Building lesson plans. Finding creative ways to teach young children. Figuring out the cost. Two days of work and more to come. So enjoyable and lovely. THIS is what I want to do :)

New Blog

I started another blog.
Totally different than this one.

Leap Year

I'm not a huge fan of modern chic flicks. I'd rather watch a classic, like Les Misérables, or an action movie, like Batman Begins. The movie Leap Year is a fine exception to this generality. It makes me laugh every time I see it. Many good moments have been spent watching it.

Wednesday Volleyball

Backyard rules
Don't make it so intense, it's not a competition, it's just a game
Good plays
Good serves
Bad serves
Falling on the ground
Conversations and laughter
Fire and snacks and singing

Stand in the Rain

So stand in the rain. Stand your ground. Stand up when it's all crashing down...

Sort It Out Now

Once you have sorted out your thoughts, realized what you have really been feeling deep down in your very soul, discuss them with those people who they concern. If someone is hurting you, let them know in a loving manner, and forgive them. If you have been blaming your own problems on someone else ask their forgiveness. If you love someone tell them. Don't wait to sort out your relationships, to forgive and be forgiven, to love and be loved, until it is too late, or you will regret it the rest of your life.
