Pianistic Legends from Buenos Aires Sharing Neurones

A recent article featured in Piano Street’s News Flash explains that four-hand piano duo partners share neurons dealing with spatial seizing while playing. That suggests that we give you readers a gem on the same topic. Watch the sample from Michael Beyer’s film production for EuroArts Music. Read more >>

what is the meaning of inadequate?  is it like the person who never gets a strike at a bowling alley?  or, never broke open the pinata at a birthday party?  perhaps, the poor soul who never seems to fit in, and ends up being a rockin disc-jockey (watching everyone else dance and have fun).

mayla, the only way to find out is to go back to your old highschool (reunion) and check out what happened to the 'inadequates.'  in the meantime, bone up on how to do everything quickly.  people think, somehow, that you think quicker if you act quicker.  learn to just do without thinking.  people will say 'wow',  you're really quick (or, that was really stupid).  nerds do everything slowly.  perhaps they take too long to think of the correct answer.

that's just my two cents.

tash,  must you embarrass us?  yes, that is the typical reunion garb.  i'd go for the diamond tiara and a flexible pantsuit.  that dress is hideous.

tash, don't laugh, but she looks like me (in a few years) with short hair.  you must be intuitive, too.

ps  you are very artistic - maybe someday i will get a painting of myself that i like better than photos.  i'd like something that expresses my serene self, and not the self that races around elminating overflowing toilets (my three year old had one hand on a roll of toilet paper, and the other one on the flusher last night).  three towels to mop the whole thing!

oh sure thing- i'll paint you in a nice fat metallic rainbow dress with armsleeves larger than your head, lying on some over-cushioned lounge, in good old titian inspired reds, with a maid in the background doing the work for you, of and you can hold a score just to look musically intelligent.
that's ok if you look like her, provided you don't sing with crazed facial expressions! yes i am subtly revealing your identity mwahaha

I'm wondering

- how to get back in touch with my personality and inspiration

- how to get to know more warm and interesting people

- if I'm out of my mind (piano, M.Sc. and a job at the same time, plus some hobbies)

- why it's so difficult to be friends with the opposite sex; it always gets messed up

- how to relax

- how to get more hugs

thinking about how it is that people just whiz through getting a master's and i just can't seem to take more than a few classes at a time (and not in the summer right now).  at least i can practice a bit this summer.  those summer classes are a GOOD idea though they are probably very intense.

teddy bear - when you come to a break point in your classload, you'll get more in touch again with your personality and inspiration again.  the pressure can be intense when you are doing a lot at once.  i had a neighbor (actually two, since they were married) back in calif. that always went out on the porch in the evening (making themselves available to those that walked by - like myself).  if you make yourself available, that is a start to the warmth and hugs you can randomly receive.  i was startled when my neighbor gave me a warm big teddy bear hug for simply being there.  she was the kind of person that just makes you feel good for being alive.  there's no pressure (since she was the same sex anyway - and also a mom).  i think you're right about the opposite sex though.  when i see a man with open arms who is not my husband, i think twice.

Nothing much at all is on my mind at the moment and I am in a pleasant torpor looking at the sunshine, listening to the birds and contemplating the nothingness within. There are several matters need attention but I think I can successfully postpone them for a day or so.

True, Bach was a sexy man. He did have a fair amount of junk in his trunk though. That probably only meant more cushion for the pushin.  Cool

mayla,  don't put the blame of all the bach children on mrs. bach.  it was simply the thing to do back then (have lots of children).  even up until the early 18th century, people were spitting out kids right and left.  if we lived back then, we'd be crazy (because we pamper and spoil them too much).  back then, they put them to work.  it was almost expected that a few babies might die in infancy.  this is devastating to couples today.

what's on my mind.  ok. da jake.  what is this?  trunk - more pushing ability.  hmmm.  i don't think women get into that much detail.  men might think everything through.  women don't marry men for this reason (although my husband has a good sized trunk).  i think it is brain power.  mrs. bach was overwhelmed with her husband's playing and composing.  she probably wanted to 'do it' everytime he played.  this is what happens to me when i hear my husband sing. i think music itself is sexy.  especially if the person puts a lot of feeling into what they play.  you say, aha, they might put that same effort into other things.  but, that's about as far as it goes for me.  of course, i'm married, so i don't even get into what would that pianist look like with his shirt off.  especially since i'm trying to wean myself off of looking at pianists that way - as objects and not people.

what am i thinking about?  when did birth control become a possiblity?  only in the 20th century?  between that and marrying late, i think we have less children than we would have had if we married as teenagers (which happened in earlier times).  *note:  don't get married too young or you'll have approximately 5 children as compared to 1-2 or 3.  and don't count on birth control to solve all your pregnancy issues.  it's really hard, seriously, to have children these days.  there is so much work involved in just getting by as a single person or married person. i've found, over the years, that extended family (which is what they had back then) really helped.  nowdays, people live so far apart.  it's much harder.
