My piano student turned 88 years old today! We had fun with the number 8. She began by recognizing today as the 8th day of the year 2018. I continued by sharing some trivia; there are 88 keys on the piano. Then she was swinging the eighth notes as she played a bit of blues. I admire her courage and impetus to learn a new instrument so late in life. Her husband constantly tells me how playing the piano brings her abundant joy.
Joyful music leads us sunward in the triumph song of life. ~Henry van Dyke
