Cathedral of Toledo, Spain (2017) exterior

It had been 13 years since my last visit to Toledo, Spain. Far too long. Of course, I had to see the Cathedral, which has had some sprucing up since my last visit. It’s hard to capture this structure’s exterior in a single photo. Here is one attempt:

Piano practice

As with anything, practice makes perfect. So, after some years away from my piano, I’ve begun again. It is truly a labor of love as playing music can be one of the most rewarding activities of human existence. There are some things that just sound right. Don’t ask me about music theory; I don’t know much about it. But one’s ear doesn’t lie. It sounds right; it is right. The following piece has some lovely chord progressions that I enjoy.

It’ll be many months before I can play this piece to the level I could years ago. It will be fun re-learning it and many others. Play on!
