Gratitude is my key. The door to my heart is what I unlock with it.
(Press play and read the rest of the story…)
My spouse is not the only thing in my life that I’m grateful for. But she sure is at the top of my list. So much about her inspires me: her energy, creativity, beauty, and loves come to mind as examples.
Though we connected romantically in our fifth decades, I still consider her to be the “love of my life”. None of the relationships before this came close to how loving and connected we are.
Getting My Gratitude On
As you can imagine, this does not mean that everything is always perfect. Life is twisty. We’ve had to deal with our own individual issues along the way. In fact, we’ve each said at various points that relationship will bring up our “stuff” in ways that being alone simply cannot.
It is in those imperfect moments, that I must return to my gratitude and the foundations of our love. With those in front of me, I can begin to put the troubling parts of these moments in perspective.
Fortunately, most of the time in our relationship, I feel the love and inspiration above all else. That’s what gives me the momentum to create improvisations like the ones that made it into this album.
I know that I am fortunate. And for that, I am grateful.
I hope you’ve enjoyed listening to these piano improvisations inspired by love. You can find them on your favorite streaming service as well.
