Hands “quasie una fantasie”

IDLE NOW, THOSE SMOOTH BROWN HANDS with their Long, thin fingers and lengthened nails; Still-prominent veins from all those hours. Shostokowitch, my friend, I am poised, mutely paralyzed, In one of your Fantastic Dances.

After all those years, my nails  are trimmed again and I am back at work to regain my ability to play the piano as well at 52 as I did at 16. Not sure I’ll ever get there, but if the journey’s the thing, then I’m on my way.
