I drew this as a reminder at how important it is for us to not accept inaction and try.
Try to become good in organ playing.
Try to master sight-reading.
Try to learn to play hymns in 4 parts with pedals.
Try to develop a real independence between left hand and feet.
Try to use organ stops in a colorful way.
Try to improvise with interest for 60 minutes non-stop.
Try to reach your dream.
Try to be generous.
But first, you have to be prepared to suck at this. You have to want it so badly that you are ready to get slapped in your face or fall down on your knees.
Because nobody has been born a master at something. Not even the great Michael Jordan or Johann Sebastian Bach.
And the only thing that separates them from the pack of armchair-quarterbacks is this:
They tried and failed again and again.
Until they succeeded.
So can you.
Whatever you do, do not accept to settle.

Don't have an organ at home?
