'Jesus expires on the cross! He is dead that we may have life. All creation mourns: the sun darkens, the earth trembles, the rocks burst, and the veil of the temple is rent in twain; my heart alone remains harder than a rock!'

'Do not listen gleefully to gossip at your neighbor's expense or chatter to a person who likes finding fault. Otherwise you will fall away from divine love and find yourself cut off from eternal life.'

'As long as the pot is on the fire, no fly nor any other animal can get near it, but as soon as it is cold, these creatures get inside. So it is for the monk; as long as he lives in spiritual activities, the enemy cannot find a means of overthrowing him.'

It's been an interesting year of learning about pianos.

Since I took up the hobby of playing a keyboard for fun and relaxation I've had quite a good time. It's been very relaxing and enjoyable. One of the things I've learned recently is that the piano used to be the home entertainment system of the past, they were so incredibly common homes everywhere had them.

Instead of gathering around a television people would gather around a piano, and play and sing. How many better ways people had of entertaining themselves back then!

For this reason amongst others old pianos are incredibly common today, and sadly they are of very little value. From what I have been told, unlike wine, pianos do not gain more value as they age but less, and have a lifespan as an instrument. Eventually it is more expensive to repair a piano than to buy a new one of better quality. And so it is often only for sentimental reasons that an older piano would be kept and repaired.

I do not have an acoustic piano, but a simple keyboard with 88 keys. I am however planning on moving up to a higher quality one that has more of a real piano feel to it and is more expressive, the one I have now is more of a beginner's introduction instrument than something reliable.

If you're looking for a way to relax and have fun as a family together.. think about pianos. They aren't always big and heavy there are a lot of possibilities today.

'Man has been created to praise, honor, and serve the Lord his God, and in this way to save his soul; and everything else on earth exists for man to aid him to reach the end which God has marked out for him in creating him. He must, then, use things as long only as they conduct him. to this end, and abstain from them whenever they turn him aside from it.'
