FOWC with Fandango — Jealous

I like to think I haven’t got a jealous bone in my body, though there are some who think I was jealous of them when growing up. I can’t think why I would have been, but we never know how other people think, or why, do we?
On the other hand, they may have been jealous of me, or rather my natural gift of music.
It would take hours of painstaking practice to learn a new piece, whereas I just had to hear it a couple of times and could do a pretty good rendition.
At the time, I grew embarrassed and would not play unless everyone else was out of the house. Hubby will tell you of the times he would come home to hear me playing but as soon as I heard his key in the lock, I’d stop.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    the musical ear! truly a gift 😀

    it’s weird, isn’t it, how people can end up getting into our heads, nonetheless, and what should be complimented, celebrated, nurtured, can become a silently guarded secret or battlefield within our own spirits …

    I hope you rise above the challenge and play to your heart’s content, despite whatever ill-will may have been foisted on you

    • I understand I have given a lot of pleasure to people who chose to listen. My maternal grandfather never knew I could play until 1970, and he was so proud! We had to go to every pub with a piano so that I could play Danny Boy for his friends. Happy days!

  3. Music is such a gift and you clearly had so much talent. That must have been so wonderful

    • I don’t play as often as I did because it’s quite painful with my hands the way they are. I certainly can’t thump the keys anymore, so have adapted the way I play certain pieces quite significantly. It’s still my safety valve though.

    Jealousy is such a negative emotion.

    Music brings joy to the world. I’m glad you’re still playing, Di.
