Ah, I love pianos, I don't know how to play well, but I sometimes play by ear, and that seems to work for therapy reasons, thank you for the beautiful words , they brought a smile this rainy snowy morning . Blessings, xo

Thank SO, not my original, first one was about space then realised we had to use a pic, it pays to read the rules. Tom
