The Death of a Piano

I understand why people leave pianos behind, they are heavy and it is expensive and difficult to move them.  Still, there is something about them that just strikes me as being especially tragic.

It is inevitable that a stand-up piano will be knocked over.  It is less inevitable that one will be wedged in a corner on its side.piano

    There is no fate too tragic for the cursed piano.

    My dream is to rescue them. Restore them and play them. A true musician will NEVER leave a piano behind. It’s like cutting off a limp. Beautiful images, though heartbreaking.
