Key pieces of my life: my keys, can’t get out of the house without them (mostly, cause I can’t get back in otherwise!), and my keyboard. I spend a lot of time at the keyboard writing and talking with people. I owe very happy times and some of the best things that have happened to me to that keyboard (in a way).
