I can hardly fathom the amount of information I've processed. Despite loads of school, I don't think I've ever felt I've learned so much in such a short amount of time. This blog and project has been the catalyst for endless hours of philosophizing, both on and away from the piano. I'm a different person. And the world has opened up in a way that I never would have expected.
I'm starting to touch on a lot of the things I'd rather save for the final post, so I won't go on much more. But I want to share this: that this project is the best education I've ever received, and has tested my limits, fears, talents, curiosities, and discipline. As the final day closes in, I tremble with excitement, relief, and trepidation. I don't know what will come next, and the idea that I won't have a project to work on makes me worry. I worry that if I don't have a goal, then I'll be wandering aimlessly. I think it's a valid concern. And if I continue? The commitment for an entire second year is daunting... I'm not sure it would have the same impact anyway. So the question looms... and I have just a few days left to come up with an answer.
Here we go, Day 361: https://ia600303.us.archive.org/34/items/Improv8912_148/20120809164503.mp3
