we’ve been friends since forever, her mom and i. one in which its most comfortable to be me. her daughter’s love of one of her passions, reminded me somehow of the tom hanks movie, the big, in which he plays the keyboard with his feet, i think at fao schwartz in nyc (like i said, I am comfortable with me in the friendship with her mom – so i know she’d get how i got there). so to celebrate her daughter’s love of music, i created a keyboard for her. every time she takes a step, i hope she hears the notes in her imagination. it’s a tough world out there, particularly high school. if she hears her music, maybe it’ll keep that smile on her face. happy 15th birthday samantha.
