Translation: Life is like a piano. There are white and black keys, but you have to know how to play both in order to have a beautiful melody.
Apparently, others have had the same insight. Tom Lehrer wrote, "Life is like a piano. What you get out of it depends on how you play it."
Someone else put it this way: Life is like a piano. The white keys represent happiness, and the black keys show sadness. But as you go through life's journey, remember that the black keys make music, too..."
If I had to describe my life right now as music, I would say that the music is fairly quiet and melodic, with a few jarring notes here and there. The music is slowly gaining in tempo, getting a bit faster now, and the orchestration is getting a bit more complex as I find ways to weave skills I learned earlier in life into the tapestry of my life as I am living it now.
If your life were a musical composition, how would it sound? Perhaps your composition would have a number of different movements, to represent different periods in your life. Some of them would be sad, played in a minor key, while others might be light and joyous. Certain parts might have quite a bit of discord or disharmony. What does your composition sound like right now? Is the music being played at a quick or slow tempo? Is it a march? a waltz? Is it jazzy, classical, New Age?
If you aren't making the music that you want to make, how could you change the melody or the tempo? How could you change your music from a minor key to a major?
You are the composer. It's your life, your music. :-)
