hand should be quiet, tranquil, floating. It is supported by
the spine, whose stable strength is cantilevered through the
shoulders and elbows, which, in turn, support the weightless
and buoyant hand at rest. But in motion the hand channels the
torso's energy, echoing and concentrating the body's disposition,
the heart's disposition toward contraction and release."
"The fingertip sinks into the key, secure but free. The
entire apparatus, from tip to toe, through the arms, torso,
and legs, hangs gently off the nexus between flesh and key.
The motion is up and down, north and south, lined up on the
axis formed by key, finger, and elbow. The fingertip adheres
possessively (but tenderly) to the key, like a child suckling,
like a monkey swinging off a branch firmly grasped by its limb
or tail. The contact is sealed, flowing, momentarily eternal."
