9/365: Some things just don’t happen according to plan.

Take my daughter, for instance. She’s been going to piano lessons every Saturday since she was four. Now, just when she’s about to finish Suzuki Piano Book 4, she doesn’t want anything to do with it. R and I are disappointed, to say the least, because she has chosen not to do something she’s extremely good at. It’s going to be difficult, but I guess we have to accept that her heart isn’t in it anymore, or at least not right now… and also because she seems happy with her decision.

I haven’t seen her in this mood, on a Saturday morning, in a long time.

  1. i bet you she’ll pick it up again sometime. being able to read is the important part, she’ll probably never forget how to read. i know i didn’t. i played the trumpet for 8 years when i was young. the more i wanted to quit, the more lessons my mother put me in. i think it’s great you’re giving her the choice, (as much as it hurts!). love the shot, it’s so soft and warm. she’s such a beautiful girl!

    • Thanks, Nancy. I really hope so. It’s such a waste of talent. And wow, do you play Chuck Mangione songs? πŸ™‚

  2. guess the hard decisions following.
    you will make a good memoir Sheila πŸ™‚

    • Thank you, Prashant. I hope my daughter reads this when she’s a lot older and realize how much we love her.

  3. I really like the story behind the photo approach. It feels more personal and in a way relaxing. The dark background for the photos is much better than the white on Flickr.

    You’re off to a great start in 2010.
