I play the piano, not well, and in fact for no one else but for me. I do it to learn a new way of “reading” and a new discipline. I sometimes, like exercise, do not want to practice but, when I do, I feel better and more has been developed inside of me. I tend to play only music I am interested in and that gives me a feeling of pleasure (eros) and a sense I am being good to myself. I like to listen to what I am playing. The same for exercise. There are classes I take which are weight bearing and jumping up and down and I could live without these but need to do them, yet sometimes I change it up to a dance class and that feeds my sense of beauty as well as gives my body a chance to tone and be healthy.
