Make something or go berserk

Sometimes you start with the first thing you see. (In this case, a piano keyboard.) I used black silk for the black keys but it doesn't translate as well in the picture. Looks pretty cool in person, though.

It's not the easiest time in my life--WSU is in session now (which means that my job is back to very demanding), my mom is in a steady decline and my sister-in-law has stage three lung cancer. (And she was never a smoker.) I love my sister-in-law and that diagnosis knocked me for a loop. She's a fighter, though, so I've decided she's going to make it.

In the meantime, I don't seem to be "verbal". I have almost no conversation except for my two closest friends. So, when you don't have anything to say, you show people what's in your world, I suppose. There's a piano keyboard in mine.

I like your piano keys. I'm sorry to hear that things are rough. I have a sister-in-law fighting cancer also. Glad to hear you have some close friends to lean on.

I'm sorry you are going through some tough times right now. Good idea to reach for the music you keep in your soul for this time when words don't work.
