You are invited to explore my new blog, Counterpoint Corner. If you enjoy crafts, music or photography you might enjoy stopping by from time to time. Come on over, click the comment link and say hello.
I started the blog just after Christmas. My goal is to find a better balance for the hobbies I enjoy, and to create a cozy little place to celebrate the journey of learning new skills.
When I am Pianoanne, I am not a beginner. But in the Counterpoint Corner I am truly an amateur at my favorite hobbies: crochet, harp and photography. I've been crocheting since August, playing harp for about a year and photography on and off for some years. I love weaving these three hobbies together each day in a creative counterpoint.
I have to say it takes a bit of courage to celebrate being a beginner. And it takes a lot of courage to put it on a blog. Though I love and understand the process of learning new skills, it is still so easy to feel not good enough.
But I am all about finding the things that make your eyes twinkle and then investing the time, love and energy into doing your best work. I hope my piano students learn this from me, I try to model this work ethic every day. Teaching piano is so much more than teaching piano isn't it?
