getting back on the horse – for the umpteenth time!

My left hand, drawn by my right hand, and my right by my left

My left hand, drawn by my right hand, and my right by my left


I´ve been away in China for nearly four weeks – and have just spent half an hour on the book after a long lay-off. I just have to work on it because I feel dreadful if I don´t!
Co-ordinating your hands when playing the piano isn´t easy: and here´s my visual depiction of it. I did a stylised scribble of hands to show how you number the fingers, and then thought I would rather have a real drawing. It hadn´t occurred to me that that meant drawing my right hand with my left! (I´m right handed.) The results are so telling: the left hand is recognisable, looks competent and capable: and the right hand looks like the claw of a dinosaur, fraught with uncertainty but also charged with unknown possibilities.
