Today’s Writing Prompt: Write about something that you unexpectedly had a hard time saying good-bye to.
Today's topic was the kind that really gnawed at me. I knew there was something somewhat recently that I had to say good-bye to and it made me sad, but I couldn't for the life of me remember what it was.
Was it our car? We've been living car-free since Aug 2010. I knew it would be difficult, but I didn't really have a hard time saying good-bye.
So that wasn't it.
I racked my brain.
Finally, I asked my husband what he might remember. Our first apartment? Not really. Our apartment in Brooklyn? No.
And then I remembered our electric piano.
We sold it a few months ago. I didn't play it very often, but I just liked knowing it was there if I wanted to play or attempt to play.
I grew up taking piano lessons. I can't say that I loved it or that I was particularly fantastic at it, but I could get by. I played in a few recitals and competitions in high school. It was fun.
Deep down, I really believe that music can be so beneficial in our lives. I think that playing the piano is an excellent skill. It's impressive when showing off.
I miss our piano at times.
But I know we'll have another one some day.
Now it's your turn! Here are a few rules:
- Set a timer and write for 5 minutes.
- Write an intro to the post if you want but don’t edit the post. No proofreading or spellchecking. This is writing in the raw.
- Publish it somewhere. Anywhere. The back door to your blog if you want. But make it accessible.
- Add the Stream of Consciousness Sunday badge to your post.
- Link up your post.
- Visit your fellow bloggers and show some love.
