Play Me, I’m Yours

While walking near the State Capitol in Austin, TX a few days ago, we were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful melody coming from a piano. When we got closer, we discovered that it was one of the 14 pianos that have been placed around the city for anyone to play as part of the Art Alliance Austin’s  “Play Me, I’m Yours” art project (part of the Street Pianos project).

The international project got its start in 2008 and has now installed pianos in more than 400 cities around the world. These pianos, which have been beautifully decorated with art and inspiring quotes, invite passers by to take a short break from their day to play some music and bring a little joy into the lives of others around them. It definitely made us smile.

It’s All About Your Attitude

Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.

— Kahlil Gibran, poet and artist, author of The Prophet
