I don’t know why this story affects me so much.  Maybe it touches a nerve because my mother so adored playing the piano before losing her sight. But I don’t think I am alone.

People are writing notes online saying thy wince when watching this story about how NYC piano movers are taking a LOT more pianos to the dump these days because people can’t afford to fix the instruments or don’t have room anymore.

I like this video story an awful lot but would have liked to have seen the main character interacting with the pianos more. We do not get action-reaction shots, just wide shots of nameless faceless people dumping pianos. The closing bite about taking things for granted is a little off topic.

I am left wondering why there isn’t some other way of disposing of these things. The story needs to answer that.
