Art brings us together

A walk to the beach the other day brought unexpected pleasures…a beautifully painted piano, meeting ninety-year old Lucy, who played it beautifully, and chatting with several other walkers who enjoyed Lucy’s impromptu concert as much as we did.

Several others gave the piano a whirl, including a new immigrant from China, a couple of kids, and yes, me.  I never really learned to play, but like other non-musical types I could sort of pick out one tune. You guessed it, “Chopsticks!”

It’s amazing how easily a bit of art can break down barriers.  Got love art.

Thanks Oak Bay Arts Council.
