8. Do you play the piano?  Does playing the piano have a connection with you?

         Yes to both questions.  I wrote an article ("Ruby's Boys and Mamie Lee at the Piano") about music in my childhood and adolescent days, which was published in "Georgia Backroads" magazine in the summer of 2010.  It can be found online here.

         In particular you might like to read about the "sonic wedge" piano recital that took place in 1956 on stage at CHS, an unusual event featuring twelve pianos on stage and 500 students (me among them) who performed in groups of twenty-four.

         I still play the piano and adore the Beethoven Piano Sonatas, as does Trussell.
