Pianos in the Sky
Dreamed before 1948 by an Illinois woman
"I used to tell the children I'd had my 'lovely dream' again. My heart's desire was a new piano, as hopeless as owning a yacht. The dream: a huge space in the air divided into rooms, each holding a wonderful piano. I ran from one to another, playing on each, so thrilled to play again after seventeen years. Then at last I saw a special one. This one must be mine. No other would do!"
(Those dreams were before 1948 and before the family moved to Illinois.)
"In Illinois, on October 15, 1948, my daughter was sent on a high-school project working on Saturdays at the Conservatory of Music. I went there to meet her after work. Here, seven hundred miles from where I had the dreams, is the huge space in the air, an entire second floor. There are nine studios for piano, voice, dancing--each with a piano. I tried them all. One I wanted so much. A spinet-type Wurlitzer. The owner of the school is buying one wholesale for me as a special favor."
