I just returned from a quick round trip to Austin in order to retrieve more of my belongings out of storage. Although I deeply culled the total mass of my worldly possessions before leaving NY, I still have too much STUFF! The big question is....Do I bring my piano out to the desert? For some time now, I was planning on selling or donating it - but now I'm thinking it would be interesting to have it out here. It is the piano I learned to play on when I started lessons in the third grade.
Over the years I have kept the piano under cover but the poor thing has gone through several freeze/thaw cycles and suffered through high humidity - not a good thing. I wonder how hard it will be to find a piano tuner to come freshen it up?
