One Deep Breath - Music

Music haiku - what could be more appropriate for me, especially today as I prepare to return to my job as an accompanist for high school singers. Music is a huge passion of mine- playing it, performing it, sharing it with others. I've considered myself a musician for at least 44 of my 50 years, and I hope I can continue practicing (forgive the pun!) this art for at least 44 more!

Hands poised to strike eighty-eight keys to command the ivories are mine

Black notes on the page become lyric and song feeding my soul

Lost in the melody singer becomes song we emerge triumphant

Applause like fine wine richly rewards mind and heart - encore please!
