I’m currently in my office doing some research for a project I’m working on but the music playlist (Peaceful Piano on Spotify) playing in my headphones is taking me back to the time my wife and I were dating in college.
She was a music education major and her instrument was piano. Her playing at the young age of 17 had somewhat of a jaw dropping effect.
The practice rooms lined the main sidewalk on campus and I could hear her playing 100 yards away. It wasn’t the volume of her playing that made me realize who it was playing, but the skill and heart she put into it. She was, still is, a gifted musician.
I can’t help but think of how much I loved her and how that love has grown through the years. We will celebrate 22 years on July 4th.
