Is MOYD still open? I'd been feeling like maybe I should try it again, but thought it was too late in the season.

I'm here to report (after the fact) I was away on vacation from Aug. 28 to Sept. 13 and resumed practice on Sept. 13. A fantastic road trip including Arches Nat. Mon., Bryce Canyon, Zion Canyon, Grand Canyon, and Chirichua Nat. Mon. in the U.S. southwest. Awesome! Just about got drowned out in northern New Mexico at the end of the trip. Yikes!

Sounds like a great trip - apart from the being drowned out part!

Have fun back at the piano!

I'll be away from home and piano from Sep 18 through 21. Then I'll be back with plenty of enthusiasm.

Just landed in Rome this morning. After a jet-lag-compelled nap, walked around the Roman and Palatine Forum and the Coliseum, looking forward to a lovely dinner tonight and the train to Orvieto in the morning. What a beautiful city! Making plans now to come back to Rome for a week.

BUT no access to a piano today, so I must ask for a pass today and probably next Saturday and Sunday. I'm told that the inn at Orvieto has a piano, and I'm expecting to play there or at a nearby music institute called to my attention by dear Cheryl.

Ciao tutti!

smile Good luck with piano time in Orvieto!!!

I'll put you out for the dates listed - then you can update.

I have to put myself on the excused list for Saturday and Sunday as I was sick as a dog.

Totally jealous of your trip to Orvieto, lovely place. Tough to get there the way I did though (on a bicycle) - long climb up!

Hey Cas....
Why don't you go ahead and sign me up for MOYD. Just in the interest of participating and supporting the idea.
I practice everyday anyway. Been doing it all year. Could have called some of it fooling around. Still had the hands on the keys.
My only problem now is how many hours.... Doh!

Sure Ron - you'll be one of the last to join as the cut off is 30 September! smile

If your question is how many hours for MOYD - that's not an issue - in a pinch 5 minutes at the piano will count, the point is to play every day. See the first page of the thread for full details smile

The trip won't have been a pianofest, though I've now lined up practice time on a serviceable upright, thanks to Cheryl.

But Orvieto is indeed wonderful: beautiful little town, great old streets and buildings, warm and friendly people, fantastic food, and so much more. Today I visited a working archeological dig in the caves below the city -- they had just unearthed some iron age tools and pottery (and some pornographic graffiti!). Very interesting. The pottery and the tools, I mean. Never mind...

For a Little While

When it all falls down, where will you stand?

On the sidelines, with a program, cheering your side?

When it all falls down, what will you say?

I knew it, I saw it, swollen with pride?

When it all falls down, some will rise from the dust

Tired and tried, unbroken but beaten, forcing a smile

When it all falls down some will say, I was there!

I stood shoulder to shoulder with Atlas, and bore the weight of the world

For a little while.



Work has been a nightmare!! Still my refuge is the bench time at the piano. Stay strong everyone.

I vote this the most poetic MOYD post of the year!
Hang in there Mr. Square!

HI casinitaly. Got your pm and now am back on track. Terrible return journey with fog delaying flights everywhere. Still, seeing my piano again eased the jet lag a treat! Lesson next Thursday so got to get some catch up done!

Yesterday was my last full day in Italy, but I was in Rome with no access to a piano. (The hotel restaurant where we lunched had an upright, but my better half threatened divorce if I tried to play it.). So I ask to be excused that day, and plan to play my piano today after a long flight home.

Cheryl, thanks again for helping find me a place to practice in Orvieto. That really enhanced my visit to your beautiful adopted country!

Hey, Cas, I'm hereby declaring myself completely out of MOYD 2013. I missed the entire summer and can't see counting myself among the Masters this year even if special dispensation were offered.

Are you going to be managing MOYD 2014? It must take a fair amount of time, and your dedication is greatly appreciated!

Hi Deborah,

Ok, I'll take you off the list - you can try again next year if you feel like it.

I don't know if I'll do MOYD 2014. It doesn't actually take very much work. I have done it for a few years now though and I am wondering if someone else might enjoy doing it.

Please may I be excused for this last Saturday?

I was out of town, and although I took my music with me, there was not a piano available at the beach condo. I did practice extra before and after though!

I do hope you'll continue to host this! I find it quite inspiring and it does get me to practice much more consistently. Since I started (May 2012) I haven't missed except when traveling or one time when we had a houseguest in the hospital.

Don't worry - even if I don't do MOYD next year someone will. I think I'm the third or 4th MOYD thread coordinator since it started up.
