I was awestruck.
For years, I’ve gravitated toward Rachmaninov’s compositions. Do you ever wonder what draws you to a particular piece of music? It is rare that I find music that I absolutely love, love, love. I enjoy music from a wide range of genres and periods: Baroque, Romantic, 1920s jazz, 1950s country (and 1970s country, ha!), alternative rock. But there are only a few musicians who truly resonate deep within me, and I’ve always found the reasons why to be quite mysterious.
It’s like that music hits a chord within my soul and thrums inside of me. It feels like something that has to do with wavelengths. That music and my being are on the same wavelength.
I could have stayed in the piano’s presence for the two hours that I was there. I could almost see Rachmaninov’s shadow and hear the music emanating from the piano.
You never know what you will find when you enter a museum. I certainly was not expecting this.

That is so cool. You and the piano and Rachnaminov. I love Mozart. His is the first classical music I could recognize without having someone tell me.
I just love classical music. It’s my favorite type of music to write by.
