If also amateur pianists count.... Well, it’s me (in an advertising for the gym where I use to train… I'm really becoming shameless  ;D  ;D  ;D  ;D ). Of course, I can’t compete with Lola Astanova, or with Helen Grimaud  :'(  :'(  :'(  :'(...

Sorry, you are right, English is the official language of the forum, but it was a kind of joke between me and Birba...
Thanks for the compliments...but perhaps you'll change your mind seeing my other pictures I posted  in the thread " Exchanging our pictures?"...

Hi Choo Choo: that's me, Margherita !!!!  :-[

I knew I shouldn't have posted that photo, but I couldn't stand the temptation....(I'm more vain than my cat Felipe  ;D  ;D)
But don't worry, I spend more time pounding black and white keys than pumping iron!!

I know it might sound strange but I am more and more losing all my interest in that sex/male/female stuff. I see of course that there are attractive people around, and I still hear that "voice" of yearning and perhaps wanting to be "with a woman" someday again when it's really time, but the visual impact distracts me and confuses me and I am not feeling like a free person anymore, so I try to ignore it and keep a distance from it as good as I can.

Very deep wolfi and I know how you feel.

When I was younger it was only looks that interested me. Years have taught me that there is so much more than looks and a warm heart and the ability to cook is far more important.

Saying that, the most enjoyable years of my life have always been when I am single and I have just good friends.

Don't feel bad or sad, Margherita! You were having fun and some laughs. We all need to have fun and to laugh.

I'm a lousy cook, too. In fact, I don't know what I'm good at! Definitely not piano!

Cheer up, enjoy the beautiful day, the sunshine, the moon, the stars, the critters, live, love and don't sweat the small stuff!

Thank you, Choo Choo,
you're such a sage, sensitive and kind person....you are always able to brighten me up!!

Ciao!

Margherita

P.S. We both are struggling with a difficult piece: you the FI, me the Rev (and Prokofiev too, but in tiny bits: no more than a bar, even half a bar at time... I'll be "old, and grey, and full of sleep" when I'll be finished, if ever!!!); let's keep on encouraging each other!! Your example has helped me a lot...

I consider you like a friend, Choo Choo, I mean a "real" friend, not only a virtual one!!!
You, Birba, David, Wolfiu, AJ are making this forum one of the most rewarding, happy and fruitful thing of my daily life. (I'm spending more time in the forum than practicing. But maybe this is a kind of practice too; I'm learning so much, and not only in the field of piano playing!!)

Let me know about your progresses with the FI: please, believe me, you're doing very, very, very well!!!!

Ciao

I consider you a real friend, too, along with some of the others you mentioned. Some of the other ones I don't know well enough to say that because I've only seen some of their posts. I haven't been a member that long, only since Dec. My friends here are you, Birba, AJ, Kyle and Littletune.

Well, the last few days, I've spent trying to learn how to do those tension relieving exercises that Birba talked about in his video. He says I'm not getting it, though, and he thinks it's not possible to teach over the internet. So I'm back to practicing FI, working on the descending passage of bar 7 - 8 in triplets but practicing it with some tension relieving method (don't know if I'm describing this correctly!). I hope I do better at this than at the Italian technique!  :(

I spend far too much on this forum too, especially during the day time but at night, I usually practice more and only visit during breaks. Still, it's probably too much time here but it's addicting and fun.

In England, choo choo is a train.
That's not been the case for many years! Those who can remember steam trains will recollet this, of course, but British trains have run on diesel or electricity for a very long time now, as surely you know!

These days, choo choo signifies someone who can actually afford a pair of prohibitively expensive shoes.

Thank you so much, Margherita! You rock!

I think you're confusing Thal!  LOL! He thinks you're talking about a train! And I think Alistair is talking about Jimmy Choo Choo shoes!

Thanks, too, AJ, for your vote of confidence. Now I must make sure I don't let all three of you down!

Next week, I'll be going away for a week. When I return in Feb, I'll be going full steam ahead like my name implies! But I have a week left before I go and I'm not going to waste it. Thanks, guys!
