Daily Prompt Catch-up: Walking on the Moon

What giant step did you take where you hoped your leg wouldn’t break? Was it worth it, were you successful in walking on the moon, or did your leg break?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us RISK.

This is my first catch-up for now. I was in the Edinburgh Central Library, Reference Library (gorgeous building, must visit if you’re in Edinburgh – it’s on the top floor), on a computer for two hours doing some work due to my infamous craptop failures, and I decided to attempt at doing some writing on the blog. However the computer did this funny thing that meant that all the text on the screen of the “New Post” page was invisible! So apologies for that, however that frustration has led me to doing this prompt which I meant to do on Saturday!

It has to be said, I am not one for taking risks – at least not anymore. I play it safe in most cases, often going out of my way to do so. However the only exception to this is when I’m playing music. A musical “risk” can be a lot of things, but what I mean by it is something that you do that might go against the grain; something unconventional. As a musician I think it’s important to put in a couple of quirks when you feel like doing so. In a performance, for example, I might do something spontaneous stylistically (obviously not completely crazy: subtlety works best!); something that I haven’t practised doing for that piece yet which will work nicely. Risks in music is what brought us Debussy, Shostakovich – in fact you can go right back to Medieval/Renaissance music whereby one composer wrote a Mass setting based on a particularly dodgy, secular song!

Indeed, in a lot of situations, in science for example, you must take risks to progress! I know that my risks in music lead to enjoyment, and that can be progress too.
