God blessed my childhood years with the melodies of piano music, filling the rooms of our home. I was fortunate to have a mother who was both a pianist and a patient and a kind piano teacher. An upright piano and a Steinway piano graced our living room, and piano students arrived after school hours, five days a week, for their lessons. My older brother had no interest in music, and so my mother set her all of her musical legacy hopes on me. She sensed that I had natural, inborn aptitude. I began taking piano lessons from her when I was eight years old. Though I had a fair amount of musical talent, my piano career was choppy, undisciplined, and short-lived— lasting only five years. As a teenager, my interest further waned, and I became increasingly restless to forge my uniqueness. I convinced my disappointed mother that I should quit piano lessons altogether.
I thought I should be outdoors playing touch football in the street with my friends. I built tree forts and rode my very cool red Schwinn bike(accessorized with a long banana seat and blindingly shiny chrome Sissy bars). Boy, am I ever dating myself! She patiently counseled me that I would forever regret that decision, and four decades later, those words of motherly “prophecy” and wisdom echo often in my mind. She was right (and as I look back over the years, she was mostly right about everything)!
I remember vividly that my mother had a friend who was a blind musician. He was a remarkably gifted man who came to our home twice a year to tune both of our pianos. His perfect pitch gained him high respect, and he needed no other instruments but his ears to know how to adjust our pianos. My mother, (along with many other pianists), sang his praises. He testified that it was “because of his blindness” that his sense of hearing was incredible, giving him a rare, even desirable musical gift. His blindness propelled him to hone his sense of hearing, evolving into local fame and a busy career. My mother swore that he was the best piano tuner in the nation, and she was proud to call him her friend.
Due to being around pianos throughout my entire adolescence, it felt natural for me to apply for a job (during the summers of my college years) working at a piano shop. The small, privately-owned company tuned and restored old pianos. It was a good fit for me, and my mother’s genes showed up! Most of the work demanded a tremendous amount of patience, involving countless hours of tedious repetition and a delicate hand. Whether it was replacing the ivories on the keys or replacing the hammers that hit the strings, everything was done in the same way at least 88 times(the number of keys on a piano). I loved doing the work because I learned that once I began the process and had an experienced feel for it, it became almost mindless work. My natural knack for the technical handiwork kicked-in and I was “in the zone.” My job became fun for me. After initially adjusting the first few keys, I could let my hands busily work. Simultaneously, my mind was free, and my handiwork still is done with good speed and accuracy. Over time, I was able just to let my hands and instincts do the work, while I could keep my mind in meditation and memorization of the Scriptures, which I enjoy.
Each set of individual strings has its pitch, its ring, its tension. Even though each string is unique, it can never function on its own. Collective harmony and fine-tuning depend on each other for success. All of the 230 strings and 88 notes are needed to make this instrument viable.
What would it matter if you are a concert pianist or a clumsy, six-year-old piano student piano if you play piano where even a few notes are out of tune? The dissonance would be loud and clear. Even the genius of Beethoven or Mozart would be disdained and scorned!
This is an example of someone who goes into his/her DEX account, deciding to trade some Compumatrix assets for low prices! That person is totally out of harmony with the mission and guidelines that all the other members follow. The disaccord makes for deviant tunes. He or she is positively not thinking about how their decision will affect the others as a whole. One out-of-tune key mars the music being played beautifully by the rest of the tuned keys. It takes just one of those few rogue individuals—out of agreement with the rest—to affect the overall prosperity. It would bring us all down, which is why I am thankful that the new CDAP will safeguard against much of that.
As in a large orchestra, each instrument must tune itself o only one standard or one pitchfork. Let’s encourage each other to follow the guidelines advised, and yield to the instructions and counsel passed down to us from the BOD and Leadership.
We need to ask ourselves, have we done everything that BOD has required of us?
Do I have at least 1 BLINC TOKEN in your DEX account? Do I have at least 1 VERVE TOKEN, 1000 BPSCX,1 Compumatrix Token, and 1000 CUSD? Have I signed into my CDAP account, and have I activated CDAP Bitcoin Wallet with at least 0.002 BTC? Am I verified on CDAP with a valid ID? Did I buy at least one bundle(highly recommended)? Did I Deposit at least 0.001 BTC on Compumatrix DEX, and do I have some Inventory in your CDAP account? Have I set up a voting proxy to Compumatrix in my DEX account and finished my KYC for Tradeceeds?
I also ask myself, “What can I do at this time to keep myself in tune in my business connectedness”? What can I do today to sharpen the tools I already have in my know-how?” I desire to be a reliable connection and wise player in our Compumatrix “concerto.”
Few of us will have all the proficiencies needed to “tinkle the ivories” in the new out-workings of this exciting crypto-universe. Still, just like the blind man who developed his marvelous sense of hearing in compensation for what he lacked in eyesight, we too will generate new business “senses” that will compensate for any temporary growth development. Just stay together. Stay engaged. Stay united. Stay in tune with what is asked by our admin. You have a particular skill set, and all of us need your note!
Your “key” (tuned with the same Compumatrix pitchfork as my key) is about to make harmonious and beautiful sounds of success and prosperity!
