life is like a piano || weeks four and five

as a pianist, i can draw several scenarios from what he's saying. 
maybe he's saying to always play allegro. the happy tunes, to live life loud and 
bold, and with no regrets. 
maybe he's saying to always play andante. the sad tunes. i heard somewhere that somehow, 
sad people can be the kindest. 
but maybe, just maybe he's saying to play a sonata. a mix of emotions where by
happiness, we can be content. and by sadness, we can know what it truly means to
be happy. by anger, we can know what it means to be 
at peace. 
maybe he's telling us to do our best and keep writing the sonata. 
that light is at the end of the tunnel, and that the sun always rises. 
so, i think that's how i'm going to play it.
