Play Another


Last year saw three new scores for Ms. Piano. Since Mei-Shun means to concentrate on study in Spanish and Japanese-teaching in 2019, she might not have enough time to augment her repertoire. Better than nothing, she would choose just one. Let her see … ah, “Jesus, Joy of Man’s Desiring” by J. S. Bach, arranged by Dame Myra Hess. It was missed at a shop before. How convenient it is, shopping on net!

Severe Barometer


Mei-Shun remembers that Ms. S, her last piano instructor owned cats at home. One of them was a black beauty called Tami-chan. She often sat on a piano chair, shared it with the young student. When the latter played well, the former stayed there. However, if awful sounds heard, she immediately escaped from the room. Yes, Mikan-chan, you sometimes do the same as well.

Meow, I prefer this.


Good Couple’s Day


They call today so, reading 11=i-i, meaning “good” and 22=fu-fu, “a married couple” respectively in Japanese. Well, Kaori-san’s first exhibition started from this date 4 years before. What a nice timing, symbolizing good communication with her husband Maru-san. Regarding Shin and Mei-Shun, the husband asked the wife to play piano before leaving for a business trip to the U.S.

Treat Only


Ms. Piano, you look so happy to see Mr. O this afternoon. He is your home doctor who visits Mei-Shun and you once an year. Scores, cloth elephants and bears have to be moved toward window-side bench. Bottles of vegetable juice are prepared in a paper bag to hand him as a small gift. Dust is all wiped away, ready to be tuned. Now, your time has come to sing lively.

13th Moon


Thanks to an autumnal clear sky, we could see 十三夜, the second most beautiful moon last night. Mei-Shun celebrated it by playing scores composed by Master Debussy and Beethoven featuring moonlight. She also would like to receive such magical power as much as possible, kept all shutters facing the south open while going outdoors. Oh, here comes sweetest silver coat. Welcome to share it with mom.

Field Up!


Thank you so much, Ms. I and Mr. Vanilla Arc. Mei-Shun finally made it: a certificate for the 4th grade of horseback riding technique would come to her hands soon. She played horse-related scores including “Life of Merry-go-round” and “La chevaleresque” before driving to the club. The former needs more practice, like gallop steps do to this happy face who has just graduated from a beginner.

Well done, mom.


Concentration Pls


Mom, you should not think of other matters while playing simple scores on Ms. Piano. Mistakes sound so harsh that I’m forced to run into dad’s study, hiss! … meow? It is the gecko I caught the other day, yet its tail cut left and teased me. Purr, now you are my target. Give up and let me punch you. Oh mom, you would help me covering it with both hands, won’t you?
