I love Bells.
Church bells, Tibetanian Bells, Tubular Bells, Handbells, Cycle Bells…
Even Doorbells, if sounding soft and tuned well.
They all contain harmonics that can’t be produced by a piano.
This is just a little effort (for pianists: I know the tricks on a piano, but I wanted to avoid them)
Bells played with emotion are even better:
they create hope,
space to an awakening mind,
time to take a deep breath and
let us feel grateful about another new day.
