"'You WILL learn how to play the PIANO,' her mother screamed.
'Yeah, but I will only remember "Mary Had a Little Lamb."'
My mother and I had a love-hate relationship with our piano. She loved it, I hated it, unless it was being used as the player piano. If I was taking lessons, or practicing, I was miserable. However, this photo looks so endearing, I could cry looking at it. My mother is now 67 and lives 3000 miles away. My husband and I have an 8-year-old boy and a 5-year-old girl. As of 7 months ago we lived just a few miles from them and saw them often. When I look at this picture it reminds me of all the things I am so naive of and what I took for granted."
