“If Miss Honeychurch ever takes to live as she plays, it will be very exciting both for us and for her”
This was in A Room With A View which I read when I was 17 (and saw the film, and had this poster above my bed). I played the piano, like Lucy Honeychurch (pretty well at the time). And, just like Lucy Honeychurch I thought I was on the brink of life. Then life happened and I’m still there on the brink, and it isn’t exciting for me or the world, and I don’t even play the piano anymore.
If I didn’t write I don’t believe I would exist at all.
