piano man

I spent the first half of today stressed out of my tree due to work issues, and the second half listening to piano on the radio. The second half all but erased the first.

I am not what they would call "musical". By this I mean I can not read it, play it, or understand it. It's a foreign science to me. Sometimes I wonder if I would be so absolutely enchanted by it if I had studied it... Jacob once asked me, however, and rightfully so: "Do you have a musical soul?" and, for the first time, in reference to a question regarding music, I was able to answer in the affirmative.

Sing us a song, you're the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
Well, we're all in the mood for a melody
And you've got us feelin' alright

Oh, la la la, de de da
La la, de de da da da

- Billy Joel, "Piano Man"

I love the piano man! I am also married to a piano man ... he just plays and plays... makes me feel like King Saul or something.... not that I am internally disturbed or anything!
