Episode from Middle C

One evening I was at the opening of my group show at the gallery. The story “Midddle C” was also on the wall.
An old lady came up to me.
“It’s true! It’’s true! You need Middle C!”
She said when her son was a little boy, he had a little keyboard. He practiced everyday, he loved the music.
A couple months later, she bought him a piano.
When he saw it, his face became pink with joy. She left him with a piano so he could try it.
She waited for a while, but she couldn’t hear anything from the room.
“Aren’t you playing?”
She asked her son. He looked at her and said,
“I can’t find a middle C”…
