Reasons for My Youthful Reactions #lorijean #herjourneytohermusic
I think I finally figured out why I would stand on my head when my mother had guests between the kitchen and living room in the doorway almost the entire time they were there, sit up in trees for hours, and repititiously as a toddler play the pink toy piano that we had in the house. I finally got to the point that I jumped up and down on my bed at bedtime with my ears covered singing as loud as I could. I GOT punished for that one.
I eventually had the pink piano taken away from me. :((( We couldn't afford instrumental lessons, and I was discouraged or not allowed at school. I was feeling trapped from my gifts.
