    I’m taking up the piano soon after a 30 year hiatus, and I’m at an age where I’m beginning to regret not starting things earlier. There are things I wish I would have started years ago, but I was busy with school and being a regular jackass for a long time. Anyway, I’m not really into quotes, but I saw this one and thought it was pretty cool.

    “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”

    Congratulations on getting into piano playing. I regret not taking lessons when there was a piano in the house

    And that is a great quote

    True! My great-grandmother started painting at around 70 or later. She lived to 106. She always had a positive and happy attitude and her paintings hang in all the family’s homes. They’re good too.

    I am glad my mom made me take piano lessons as a kid.
    Hate them at the time. Had one old teacher that was a
    clock repair person who had a billion clocks all over.
    We knew practice was over when the chimes took over
    his old creaky house.lol
