Gray's Bay Ghost
I took this photo years ago, at Gray's Bay in the early morning light. A ghost pensively paced the shoreline.
The bay-trees in our country are all wither'd
And meteors fright the fixed stars of heaven;
The pale-faced moon looks bloody on the earth
And lean-look'd prophets whisper fearful change.
(Richard II, 2.4)

Now for some science: The first prehistoric pianists
The very first piano playing animals were amphibious, (Ichthyoklavierus) their lives spanning the late Carboniferous and early Permian periods. They could only sustain short primal melodies and ayres before returning to water. Still, for millions of years they dominted the music scene and eventually evolved fingers and even toes to work the damper pedal.
