Praying the Piano Again

Exploring the university campus a bit more today I found myself a piano to play in the “Old Hall” opposite the chapel. Nice big space to be “praying” the piano again. The piano is so very important to me. I find playing it to be a kind of prayer which I cannot express in any other way. I suppose me playing the piano is my liberal version of “speaking in tongues”. Rather than creating noise in an evangelical setting, I enter a space of quietness and communicate with music. Sometimes you just need to let go, and see what the notes say. It’s one of my most absorbing personal forms of prayer.

And so yet another lovely piece from Ludovico Einaudi as this weeks Song of the Week…
