I learned to play piano when I was ten years old. I continued to play and took lessons until I graduated from high school. I stopped playing then because I didn't own a piano. I always missed it however. Finally, twenty years later, I bought a piano and began playing again. I then realized that current technology would let me create CDs of my own music. I've produced two albums since then. They aren't for sale -- I'm not that good and I don't have the rights to make commercial recordings of other people's compositions -- but they make good Christmas presents for family and friends.
