Maybe it was years of undiagnosed A.D.H.D. or corporate fatigue, but I suddenly couldn’t stand the status quo. I quit my job, then bought a piano without knowing how to play. I binge read when I’m not busy praying for a purpose, spiraling away from the buttoned-up executive I used to be. No matter how far I drift, my partner, Mike, offers unconditional trust. He has more faith in me than I do. I sit with that truth while experimenting with the piano’s 88 keys. Though it feels like I’m just making noise, Mike always calls it music.
