when i was a child my mom once handed me a wise and ancient book called the harvard brief dictionary of music. and it was good.
and i kept that book in my hands for a couple of years until magicallly it came into the hands of my mom again, and it was good.
and then a few years later i started independently studying piano and the book came back into my hands and it was good.
and then somehow the book came back into her collection and it was good.
and it kept going back and forth until 2017 and somehow it magically ended up back in my collection of books. and it was good.
