A woman wishing to encourage her young son’s progress on the piano, took her boy to a concert. After they were seated, the mother spotted her friend in the audience and walked down the aisle to greet her. Seizing the opportunity to explore the wonders of the concert hall, the little boy rose and eventually explored his way through a door marked “NO ADMITTANCE.” When the house lights dimmed and the concert was about to begin, the mother returned to her seat and discovered that the child was missing. Suddenly, the curtains parted and spotlights focused on the man on stage – twas the little boy. In horror, the mother saw her little boy sitting at the keyboard, innocently picking out “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.” At that moment, the great piano master made his entrance, quickly moved to the piano, and whispered in the boy’s ear, “Don’t quit. Keep playing.” Then leaning over, the Piano Master reached down with his left hand and began filling in a bass part. Soon his right arm reached around to the other side of the child and he added a running obbligato. Together, the old master and the young novice transformed a frightening situation into a wonderfully creative experience. The audience was mesmerized!

These are the thoughts that came to my mind after reading this piece:

  1. Certain situations may pose embarrassing at first, but in them lie great opportunities

  2. Tasks become easy when one is guided by another who is well skilled in that area

  3. Tis wonderful to have “Present Help” in the time of need
