Today, I came across this piece of music, and upon watching the wonderful artist Hiromi Uehara performing this emotional solo performance, I ended up in tears.... A place to be indeed. A great inspiration for that never ending quest of mastering the instrument and our emotions. :)

She's not an inspiration for me - that'd be like an ant hoping to one day emulate a giraffe. Her precision and control are off the scale and she has such an intense awareness of the sustain of the notes and the note values.
