What’s your most prized possession?
The piano my father bought when I was a child.  I not only learned how to make music from that piano, but I learned important lessons about patience, perseverance, and creativity from it too.  We lost my father too soon and every time I look at the piano or sit down to play, I know he’s there with me, telling me to play my best.
