When I heard this song play this afternoon I remembered the opening of the movie with a feather that was done with CGI Graphics that was blowing all over the place through town, landing on the bench where Forrest Gump was sitting.
I remember so vividly in technicolor and have that beautiful image playing in my mind like the movie did.
Combined with the beautiful soundtrack music that Alan Silvestri wrote, “I Am Forrest Gump”, it will always move and inspire me. The music Only lasts for 2 minutes but it’s a glorious 2 minutes!
I can still remember remember it as though it was yesterday.
I also remembered that I bought the sheet music to it, actually Mark bought it for me (my ex-husband) and I was trying to find it the other day. But it was lost in my sea of sheet music. ALL THOSE YEARS OF TEACHING PIANO I COLLECTED a Lot of sheet music. It’s unfortunate though, that sometimes I can’t find what I am looking for!
I considered the song lost in my sea of sheet music, and decided I would simply do as I always did before I learned how to read sheet music which is just sit down, listen and play what I heard.
I put it on a loop on Spotify and tried to play by the sing by ear instead! AND TO MY ELATED SURPRISE, I DID.
The motto of the story is- shoot for the best that you can do in this world and then just try because the best that can happen is you just might do it!
