Japanese Pianists When Reflecting About Life in the Sunset
I haven’t written about an arbitrary Japanese music compilation in a while, so I figured I better get back into it sooner than later. I feel like life is going by much quicker than ever before, as I do the same thing every morning. I wake up around 9:00 AM, make a mango smoothie, and stare at my computer writing about any topic that pops into my scrambled head.
Whether those topics are for work or my blogs, all of it feels the same as the day before. I’m sure many people exhibit this behavior due to the pandemic, as it’s an unprecedented time we’re all currently living in. Sometimes I like to think it’s a simulation that’s testing us. Truth be told, a simulation would make this day-to-day operation a bit more interesting as I’m feeling more mundane every hour.
Still, I feel fortunate for the luxuries and privilege I do have in this life and I shouldn’t complain. Life will return to a sense of normalcy eventually. Until then, I will continue to write about music and hopefully begin making videos on the topic as well. Nevertheless, check out the video above as it highlights Japanese pianists when reflecting about life in the sunset.
