Today, for the first time, I played this chord:

A very tall Db Major

Not so impressive in itself. But it is the last chord of Debussy's "Claire De Lune", which has been giving me enormous grief over the last few weeks, and will continue to for many weeks to come.

Don't misunderstand me, it's not like I can actually play the piece properly or anything - it still sounds like a bunch of bits that don't quite work together, and that peter out around the end of the fourth page, but I have now actually picked my way through to the end from that point.

All the notes in the piece have now been played. I now just need to play them better. An achievement, and progress over which I have control - an important thing in my current position.

But it's really *hard*. And it involves *concentrating*. Waaaaaaah.
