I guess as this is a photo prompt, I can interpret this any way I want.
And the first thing that came to mind was ...
"If music be the food of love, play on" by William Shakespeare in his book "The Twelfth Night". These words are ingrained in my brain - we had to study this book in school.
And from that the word "quotes" kept flashing in my mind so here they are ....
Keys to life
Life is like a piano, what you get out of it depends on how you play it. ~ Tom Lehrer
That is so true. Life is what we make it. The choices we make are the paths we carve.
On a personal note with the piano ...
I tried to learn it when I was about 6 but never took to it - I played it really badly.
Reading notes was like trying to decipher Latin and Greek blindfolded. Besides which I
wanted to play all the nifty pop songs my brother played on his guitar, not the classical
stuff! But I regret giving it up and wish I had persevered. Trying to learn the keyboard
now on my own, but I think I might have to join a class.
Sometimes we drop the keys ...
It still brings me up short to walk by somebody who appears to be talking to themselves
~ Rob Newhart
I can so relate to this.
Sometimes I hear a hello right behind me or next to me and then I feel pretty
foolish for saying hello back. At least if they had the phone in their hands you'd know
they were conversing with someone.
A different key is needed each day. Today I thought of this one from an incident at work.
Smile, it is the key that fits the lock of everybody's heart ~ Anthony J. D'Angelo
This is something I have learned first hand particularly in difficult situations.
A smile definitely diffuses tension. And conversely prevents tension too.
Somebody said once or wrote once: We are all of us children in a vast kindergarten trying to spell God's name with the wrong alphabet blocks! ~ Tennessee Williams, Suddenly Last Summer
But eventually I hope someone will hand us the right blocks!
Or in the context of this post ... the right keys.
Sending you all a virtual smile. Enjoy life.
