Getting Back the WTP

Well, as some of my Facebook friends know, a few days ago, I lost my will to play the piano. The Will to Play (aka the WTP) was gone. I just didn’t feel like doing it.

That’s not too serious, for a while. School’s out right now and other projects are slow through August, so I don’t really have to play the thing that much. And I was kind of playing 6-7 days a week, a lot, throughout the spring and into the early summer of this year. So I think I may have played a whole year’s worth already.

But it’s OK – the WTP seems to be coming back. There are several reasons for the return of the WTP:

1.  I got better coffee at the store;

2.  I have a wedding to play at in Oklahoma in a week and a half. Apparently they don’t have any piano players in Oklahoma, so they had to call me;

3.  I don’t want to play badly in Oklahoma, and I don’t want to play dumb songs. So I kind of need to find good songs, and work on them a little;

4.  Forget #2 & #3 – I think I just needed to get different coffee. I should have just tried that first. Everything seems back to normal now.

I don’t really feel like playing the guitar, though…

    We of course will have to send you to a re-education camp.

    At least you did not lose the will to live, which may be considered more important.

  3. Wait, Leon, is there a difference between the two?

    Glad you’re back on track, and I’m with you on the guitar, because, well, when you haven’t played for a while, it can be painful.
