Something I wrote recently in my journal.
I came up with this when I thought about all the people around the world protesting for better conditions and better lives.
Great photo from this weekend.

Art Tatum, Bobby McFerrin, and Brad Mehldau are my current favorite. But then again, I have so many favorites.
I am giving this blog away! I dont really have the time to manage it, and I’m sure there are plenty of people who would like to continue hearing some new and interesting piano music.
I am looking for one individual who is willing to take this tumblr and continue the tradition of posting things related to THE PIANO. I would also be helping with contributing.
Ideally, I’m looking for someone who has been playing piano for quite a while, has a wide variety of musical tastes, and may be able to teach the people who follow this blog, something about the Piano. I am not looking for someone to take this blog and use it to sell their own products, ideas, or just to spam people.
IF YOU THINK YOU CAN HANDLE THIS AND WANT TO TAKE OVER… ASK
In a cosmic perspective, most human concerns seem insignificant, even petty. And yet our species is young and curious and brave and shows much promise. — Carl Sagan (via crookedindifference)

We NEED to remove our addiction to OIL as an energy source! We need to come together to find a solution to end the Oil Monopoly.
It makes me so sad to see our world being destroyed for mere profits. Have you see Shell’s recent ad campaigns— The ones where they state that they are working to create a cleaner, safer energy. Well unfortunately there is a HUGE oil spill off the coast of Nigeria and its quite possibly worse than the recent BP oil spill in the Gulf.
When will we learn from our past mistakes? How many more oil spills will it take before we make the proper changes in our world?
Here is something to mess around with when you’re bored…
The state of Ohio become a piano and every county is a key! Play chords using different categories using the demographics of each county. Play a song of your choice and watch as each county lights up. Or how about a route from one city to the next.
This is hours of Ohio fun!
