The Piano

My son came home from school today and told me about this short animation they watched at school. While he recounted the story to me, he had tears in his eyes. I was moved but thought nothing of it. Then before he went to bed, he took my laptop and showed me the animation.

Well, I listened to it and had tears in my eyes too.

It was a very moving story about a man, who lost his wife, friend, son and was only left with his grandson. In all honesty, I couldn’t explain this story using mere words, but I guess if you listen to the music you’ll understand it.

A wise man once said, ”Life is a song – sing it. Life is a game – play it. Life is a challenge –  meet it. Life is a dream – realize it. Life is a sacrifice – offer it. Life is  love – enjoy it.” Sai Baba


This week, I hope you’ll all sing life’s song, meet life’s challenges, play life’s game, realise your dreams, offer sacrifices of love and above all, love and enjoy your life!!

Have a great week everyone!

Much love, always!

    A message to keep & keep reminding ourselves. It’s so easy to fall back from life just after losing people near & dear to us.
    Much love & many blessings to you & your family.

    Aw, what a tale. Some go through life without actually living it to the fullest. It’s best we cherish each moment when we are with friends or loved ones.

    Wonderful, sis.

    What a beautiful video. It was really refreshing compared with all the noise and speed coming at us all day long.

  12. A powerful message, Sandra.

  13. I think it is difficult for children to process death, and it is super difficult for parents to explain it. Great post!

  15. This was lovely to read and listen too, Seyi! My daughter who plays piano was drawn to the room when I had it on – she liked it too. 🙂

    Oh, Seyisandra. No. 1, your son is gorgeous. Bless him.

    No. 2, that animation was magnificent. Just magnificent. That final key stroke…. beautiful: life.

  23. At first I thought this was going to be an animation based on a real video of an older couple playing the piano – a fun one to watch if you haven’t seen it. 🙂
