From Broken To Beautiful
I love music. And I love pianist Nils Fraham. Recently, Nils broke his thumb. Which is really bad news for a professional pianist. He had shows to do. Commitments to fulfill. Projects to complete. And now a much needed thumb was broken and in a cast. So for a few days he felt pathetic. He spent a couple more days of feeling sorry for himself. He had the right to be down in the dumps about this whole situation. But Nils decided to do something unexpected….be began to write some piano songs. Against his Doctors orders, Nils composed 9 beautiful piano solos with his 9 working fingers. Minus the broken thumb of course.
You can listen to what he created here. It’s awesome!
The lesson for us all: Take what you got (even if it’s broke) and make something beautiful.
