wait. before you read. listen to this.
okay now read...

I'm about a month away from being able to play out. Once I knock down Ancora I will have a set list of about an hour long and I can extend it whenever I please. When I do it'll be a weird vindication for me. I'll be playing along while people talk, or eat dinner, or do whatever else they are doing. It's rare that a pianist gets paid attention to in these settings. Typically deemed as background music, but I think it'll be rather symbolic of my life. I think there's a lot to me, and a lot inside of me, without many or even anybody seeing it. So while I'm playing everything that's inside of me, I will continue to be ignored. While it obviously hurts, I think I'm going to enjoy it quite a bit. It'll almost be like a secret with myself that only I know what I am playing while everybody else remains oblivious. That connection with oneself is very important to me. Some might think it's weird but I always talk to myself and make jokes with myself, ones that only I can understand. This will just be one of those jokes. Very stoked about the potential of this being a summer job.
