Variations On A Nightmare
It's been many years since my last piano recital but I still get variations on the same nightmare . .
I have to play a senior recital but I realize I've forgotten to practice - for the last year! There's one more chance for me to practice so I sit down at the piano, but I can't remember any of my pieces. Maybe if I get out the music. Yes, good idea! But I can't read the notes, they're all blurry and they won't stay still. Then the sheet music falls off the stand. I look over and see my professor and some students sitting on stadium style benches in a dark room. My professor has a bemused expression on his face. I look back at the music, still can't read it. I look down at my hands, what keys are they on? Then I realize I'm wearing a long shirt that's tucked under my rear. I hope it covers me because I'm not wearing any pants!
Ahhggg! Wake up!
