Our Piano Journey in its Living Context
Written by ANDREW EALES
This was the first post ever published on Pianodao when the site launched on August 1st, 2015.
Have you noticed that the pace of life isn’t slowing?
That social change and technological innovation are often adding to the stress of your daily life rather than alleviating it?
Sometimes we simply need to slow down. To find calm and purpose.
This is true for all of life – including our piano playing.
The image of a tree growing gradually on a mountainside sums up the natural wisdom of making secure progress, and reaching purposefully towards all the points one must in one’s individual journey.
This image of “Developing Gradually” (I Ching 53) is likely to recur here on the Pianodao site as core wisdom. It underpins the development of this site.
There is so much I would like to share here – but it will take time. The planning is done, and roots are growing into the ground. Over the next few months and years I hope that many branches will grow.
And I hope that as you join me on this journey, you will be nourished by the fruits of the site.
