cane hill | syringes on sunday

Safely inside, we turned out attention to attracting the attention of everyone inside (and outside) the hospital by playing a merry tune on the old piano.

Laurence could play a little and the ward was soon filled with a sombre classical piece. I have no idea what the people on the footpath outside would’ve thought.

When Phil returned a week later, his musically inclined friends (who play in a band), got a great ragtime/ dance ditty out of the piano. A video exists of this marvellous improvised rendition (and bloody good it is too) - so I’ll endeavour to get a copy onto this site pronto.
