September 17 – Key

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAToday’s photo challenge word is Key.  I thought it would be fun to use a photo of Ian when he was a baby trying out the computer keys. “What letter does my name start with again…” he seems to be asking.  “I — now where is it on this keyboard?  Can I get some help please?”

At almost 7 years old, he does quite well on the computer and we have a different monitor that isn’t so big.

There are also keys on a piano, keys that open our house or start our cars, the key to happiness, the keys to success, and a key to our heart.

I love to hear piano music and the tickling of those 88 keys.  I know a few people who are great pianists.  I am still learning and hope to be able to spend more time practicing.

Keys are things that we use every day.  Who hasn’t been frustrated when locking a key in a car?  ARG?! New cars don’t even have keys, which is me is a little strange, but a fob instead.

Here are a few quotes about keys:

  • “Don’t be discouraged. It is often the last key that opens the lock.” — Unknown
  • “There is no key to happiness.  The door is always open.” — Unknown
  • “Success is not the key to happiness.  Happiness is the key to success.  If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.” — Albert Schweitzer
  • “Hard work is the key to success.” — Anonymous
  • “I don’t know the key to success but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.” — Bill Cosby

I wonder what keys I will be using today?  More than likely the house key and car key, the computer keys, and hopefully the piano keys.
