I was all set with this breaking news report, but Regis and Kelly beat me to it, about 5 minutes ago.
Strange things are known to happen on Cape Cod. It is thought that departed spirits roam the beaches and woods. It could also be that many characters reside on that spit of land that juts out into the Atlantic Ocean.
Last week the police in Harwich MA were informed that a woman taking a walk in the woods had found a piano and bench. There are many theories about why it is there.
In the new movie TWILIGHT, the teen vampire plays the piano in the woods. Are there fans that have been recreating the scene?
Are there parents that have found a solution to their little Mozart-Wannabe-Insomniac pounding Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star at 3AM?
My personal theory is that someone is moving and needed to get rid of the piano. I've been there, done that. I had my grandmother's 100 year old piano when I lived on the Cape. It had been in the garage for 18 years. No one wants a free piano that has been in the garage for 18 years. We had to pay a junk company to take it away. The thought never occured to me to just dump it.
When the article appeared in the Cape Cod Times, the comments were pretty amusing. My two favorite:
"Someone will have to face the music"
"Will the owner want it Bach?"
If I found a piano in the woods, I would be inspired to play. I think I might practice the soundtrack to Into The Woods.
