Won't be back for many a day .....

     The accented section was supposed to sound like a "maiden on horseback riding through the woods with her hair swept back by the wind" but my frustration was causing it to sound like the drum beats of war! So I knew it was time to take a break, to step back and do something else other than piano for a little while. I don't know when I'll be back but I shall return as this is my favorite piece. I want to return with renewed vigor and enthusiasm and love for this beautiful piece.  I thank you very much for your continued support.

You will know when the time is right. Until then, relax and concentrate on other endeavors. Soon you will be inspired and return to the keyboard!

P.S. I wish I could play half as well as you. I will always feel sad I never learned a musical instrument. I am a terrible typist so imagine I would be equally sloppy at the keyboard.

Thanks for your encouragement, Kathleen. Since I'll be going to Jamaica at the end of this month, I'm focused on it now. It's a nice change from practicing, especially when I was beginning to get so frustrated that anyone who listened to me play could feel it and would have suggested that I take some time off! Once I get my trip sorted out, I'll return to the piano with renewed vigor and enthusiasm. I love this piece and there's no way I'm going to quit!
