Senior Recital

20130328-162218.jpg
My daughter, Amanda performed her Senior Recital last Sunday. It must have been more than coincidence that her performance was on Palm Sunday, the day we celebrate and remember Jesus’ Triumphant arrival in Jerusalem. This performance of Amanda’s was her Triumphal Swan song for her college career at Saginaw Valley State University. I know I am a biased dad, but Liszt, Chopin, and Rachmaninoff never sounded so beautiful. Amanda looked beautiful and poured her soul into each piece she played, it was amazing. Truly one of my proudest moments as a dad. Well done Amanda! Now on to the next chapter…
This picture was taken while she was warming up.

Day 50 Piano Teacher

My Daughter, Amanda is a pianist.  I just love to hear her play this piano; in fact I could listen to her play for hours on end.  Amanda plays all types of music and no matter if it’s Classical, Christian, Pop, or Rock, she knows how to make her music reach the depths of your heart.  When she plays, she becomes the piano and the music.  She has begun teaching others her art, on this same instrument she learned on.  I took this photo just before her lesson tonight.  This is a monochrome with a sepia tone effect.  I like the mood it creates, somewhat dreamy, with a little bit of a retro look.  The ice cream chair adds to that retro look and of course the piano is timeless.
