Las Vegas, Nevada

Mo and I were at the Las Vegas rescue mission creating music for about five hundred people today with the grand piano newly tuned. The experience was very interesting. Without the out of tune bright dissonance I had become used to, I kept trying to play louder. Then I thought something was wrong with my hearing but is was simply a calmer instrument with all the sounds more balanced. In fact the music was calmer whether I wanted it to be or not. I sort of felt like I was not there and also trying to recreate the chaos that was familiar. It was interesting to think that I felt somewhat uncomfortable with the fact that even the smallest change to the comfort zone I had been used to... even though the change was for the better... was not better until I was able to adjust. The fact that a time period for an adjustment was so consciously needed was uncomfortable in of itself. Lol, in being a creature of comfort with such a tendency for complacency... what a life I have created for myself. My life does not allow for very much complacency or creature comfort... on purpose.
