......Ten thousand......


I donít know that I should be particularly proud of owning 10,000 posts, a sure indication of my peripheral obsession with any place, thing or person in any way remotedly connected with the piano. I am very much in love with many of the posters here and am extraordinarily grateful for the opportunity to participate in such a marvelous thing as this forum.

I congratulate Frank Baxter, whose very gentle guidance and reluctance to stifle the offerings of the posting public has created a medium of phenomenal possibility.

Hereís a poem \:\)


Piano Addiction[/b]


I know what it's like to be powerless
a slave to an instrument of pleasure
bonded by love with servitude
practiced slowly measure by measure
the strictest of rigid parameters
defining my moments of leisure
in a delightfully alluring and difficult
rousing relationship ever to treasure.

I enjoy your posts very much. Your poems are quite witty, too.

Not a very exquisite post here on my part... I'll have to start preparing for when you hit 20K!

Congratulations Apple*! Here's a poem for you. \:\)


An Apple* a day, keeps the insane away,
with exception, of course, for Roi,
Your talent exceeds a long string of beads,
and your postings here bring us great joy!

Your posts entertaining and never complaining
on politics, cooking or jest,
Your poetry writing is truly exciting,
It brings out the best of the best!

For 10,000 posts you surely can boast,
You're up there with Gryphon & Jolly,
Congrats and good wishes,
you'll swim with the fishes,
and keep us all smiling....by golly!

So what if Apple has outposted me by a ratio of about 90 to one? What does she have to show for it? Just a large number of friends and admirers, educated readers and amigos across the country? I have been utilizing that time sitting in a darkened room using the Think Method to study the piano. By next month I'm pretty sure I'll be able to play the easy version of any Beatles song before 1964-----
