I have kept a box of sheet music of my mom's for many many years. It included sheet music from the 1950's and 60's. Everyone has picked through it and taken what they wanted, and still the box took up space in my closet for a long long time. I finally took it out to ASU and made a donation to the music department's library. My mom attended ASU, I graduated from ASU and Rachel graduated from the music school at ASU, so it seemed a good place to make a donation. I wonder sometimes why I get so attached to "things" that we keep around here.
I actually should pull out all my music once in a while. I think I would enjoy playing some of it and for sure I could annoy my kids with it, and that is always good to do on a semi-regular basis. I really should simply play the piano more often. Heidi asked me this week when I practice the organ. I had to confess I don't ever practice the organ. Well, I take that back. If it's a funeral or something special, I do actually practice. I just don't practice the week to week music for Sunday services. I do a quick run through on the piano before I head out to church on Sunday mornings and call it good.
From my box -- Here's a piece that stands the test of time, who even remembers the movie 'Ice Castles"?
