Yelaina's Diary - Newbie
#53
Saturday February 20, 2016 (I washed dishes without glasses to Var in D Maj)
Yesterday I wrote a response to Kabuto.
Then when I washing dishes last night with my glasses off,
I remembered this piano song Variations in D Major by Dimitry Kabalevsky
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xrosKiWia0o

I allowed each shift in eye attention to represent a shift in notes/sound that I heard.
Because Variations in D Major shifts and repeats alot, it makes an interesting game of attentionshifting.
Like I will pick out the window, dinner table and my hair framing my face to shift, and when I spot a new note I will have to pick a new object like a dish to look at. 
Changing to the next phrase of sound I would have to pick new objects.
If the sound is held, I would hold my gaze on the object, usually it is less than 2 seconds before the next note comes.
Chords at the end is like shifting between grounds rapidly.


Before I slept I also wondered if I can do something likes scales that I do on the piano before I start playing.
I decided to try ABCalphabet song. I divided the view infront of me like a rubrics cube of 3x3x3 cubes or 27 cubes.
I than sang ABC in my head. However the alphabet has only 26 letters to my disappointment. So shifting attention from Top-background, mid-top background, right-top background, right-mid-background, center-mid-background, ....
I finally reached a ground near me but  z almost stopped the song. I filled it with next time wont you sing with me.

Any ways the ABC song was boring. But Kabalevsky's Variations in D Major works really well as a game.
The guy on youtube plays it too fast. If you find something to look at hold the note along with the view.
I suggest memorizing the song and pick the rifts that you like to work with at your own speed.

Through the process later infront of the mirror
I noticed that because I wear glasses like alot (all the time), I feel uncomfortable when I see the edge of my face or my hair framing my face, or the sides of my nose, when I have my glasses off. I also notice that the iris of my right eye that is further from the light source expand (to let in light). Little things that I a not use to seeing. Interesting but also very new.
Do normal people without glasses see so many things? or are they desensitize and habituated to ignore these trivial bits of view?
