I can honestly say, until you experience the beauty of someone elses' trash and visualise how it can be your 'treasure' you won't fully appreciate the pleasure of 'dumpster diving' or curbside collecting.
This week I found an old piano - literally discarded, sitting by the side of the road even after the council curbside collectors had completed their task. It was beautiful in its history - it had clearly been used well and if only it could share with me some of its well played melodies.
For its sake I hope to enable it to live again - it won't play music but it will bring a different beauty to others. Stay tuned and watch the rebirth of one of the classical instruments in a new art form.
