For a spiny chair, it makes a decent stepladder.

Day 16 of 2021— I finally did something that I’ve been pushing off for several months now. It’s one of those things I didn’t need to do, but knew the payoff would be great. When I think about how much it affected me up until now, I realize I had adjusted my daily activities based on this one thing. Sure, I got by with temporary substitutes, but those only lasted for so long. Admittedly, those things were easier to replace than the thing I accomplished today.

This task required agility, balance, coordination, flexibility, and perhaps stamina. It made me conscious that if I made one wrong move, it would ruin the moment of trying to adult.

Lots of analogies come to mind. Why is it that the fruits on the highest branch taste the best or are worth the wait? And why are the best things for us the ones that make us reach?

But you know, it only took 5 minutes to do.

Ladies and gentlemen, I now bask in the fruits of my labor! It seems ages ago that I dragged my chair to climb it, to climb off it, to climb it again, and to climb off it for the last time, before sitting on it.

Did I mention the stairs and the need to walk through a bunch of stuff to get what I needed? And then I had to open everything and tidy up everything afterwards?

So really, the whole thing took 15 minutes of my time.

What Goes Best with A Bowl of Wisps?

BP2

Whatever I’ve tried doing today, I just can’t seem to be content. I’ve spaced out on this blog for an hour, tried watching TV, and even tried chilling. I just seem restless in a tiny, yet big space. The mind travels off the map sometimes.

Floating thoughts at the moment, in case you’re interested!

Is there really a point in learning Mozart? Especially when one isn’t a classical pianist, and there’s no concert or coffee shop gig to prepare for. I’ve recently been learning the joy of playing for self. A few years ago, I didn’t understand that concept. But it’s just as well that my plate is currently light, considering I haven’t truly practice in years. My hands have gotten sore in a short amount of time, and it’s taken me a few weeks to learn the first page of a modern piano piece. It’s still a waltz, but the film from which it’s from makes it more current than Beethoven & Chopin. But hey! I’ve learned one whole page of a waltz that I imagine would sound awesome on a piano in the middle of a crowd someday.

And did you know that we’re only 20 weeks in to 2020? Somehow, that time length sounds shorter than 5 months. Tomorrow starts week 21. I’ve had 10 main goals in mind for the year, and their progress are as wispy as what happens when Googling images for this word. You’re welcome! ^_^ Admittedly, wispy is just fun to say.

On a day when one should do stuff but doesn’t feel like it, I guess that’s where sitting at a piano all day could be considered an accomplishment. What’s more, I don’t even have to play. I could just sit and make that the day’s purpose.

Maybe that’s the point of Mozart…

Cue the trapeze.

Perspective pedals a tiny tricycle around a path of twists and tangles, while honking a cheery horn. With a wagon red smile and frizzy kissed hair, my eyes try looking beyond the paint. It’s well done but not waterproof.

I tried following its logic, but the only thing I ask is—where does my heart get to rest in all this. I’m sure it’s allied with time, but the importance of the latter can wait outside the door until further notice. Though, the ticking doesn’t stop or is anything but silent.

But what if all the confusion that Perspective brings could be cleared up with a bunch of balloons. We could even hold a candlelit ceremony at sunset, say thanks, and watch everything ascend gracefully. Of course, I would welcome the winds’ whispered favor.

Then again, I’m sure five seconds after a peaceful sendoff, the time that I had totally forgotten about and tried to ignore would come crashing in. If it had rung the doorbell, I wouldn’t have heard it, for the only thing that kept me sane is up there with the balloons.

Perspective can be right.

Perspective can be wrong.

Perhaps, Perspective deserves a lollipop for all that I put it through.
