“Love is a temporary madness, it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion, it is not the desire to mate every second minute of the day, it is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every cranny of your body. No, don't blush, I am telling you some truths.
That is just being "in love", which any fool can do.
Love itself is what is left over when 'being in love' has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.”
(Louis de Bernieres - Captain Corelli's Mandolin)
The Piano Blog
I'm trying to start most days playing the Piano for a while. Just improvising whatever comes into my head.
The main point being to capture a moment. I'm recording them and publishing them here and
via Facebook & Twitter along with Ruth's photos.
I don't know where this will take me
but if you're interested please follow, sign up and leave your comments.
All these pieces are unedited, one take and so mistakes are included !
They're all available to download or on CD from
'An essential aspect of creativity is not being afraid to fail'
