Also, Girls’ Day in Japan, “Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien” (2010), Magical Alpine Ceremony (2012)
What an auspicious day this has been in my life – a triple whammy on the third day of the third month of the year – which is also celebrated as a Girls Day in Japan (Hinamatsuri) and some other parts of the world.
On this day in 2010, I recorded my last piece of music on my old antique piano. The same day, Elizabeth and I used helium balloons to mark up the eight nodes of a celestial network – a planetarium, if you will – I was building at the Rainbow Shower at the time. This $7.50-solution, saved me over $1,000 which a helicopter rental would have cost to do the same geodesic job.
No wonder they say the #3 is the number of CREATIVITY. If you look closely at the video below, you will see that I was even wearing an orange sports shirt with a number 3 on it. I only noticed that after I had already made the video at the end of the day – Mar 3, 2010.
It was also the day on which in 2012 I had an amazing experience in the Alps during a shamanic healing ceremony:
Alpine Healing Ceremony Part 1: Innsbruck-Bolzano (Mar 3, 2012)
Alpine Healing Ceremony Part 2: At Lake Vernago (Mar 3, 2012)
Alpine Healing Ceremony Part 3: Film (Mar 3, 2012)
And in 1978, at age not quite 33, I also resolved to live the rest of my life WITH NO REGRETS. As a first step, I left my “safe” job at IBM and started my own business. And the rest is history.
“Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien”
Eight years ago on this day, I recorded the last piece of music on my antique piano (c. 1929). Nine days later, my new Steinway arrived. And my musical life was never the same again.
That last musical recording was also very poignant in my life. It was Edith Piaf’s farewell song – “Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien” (No, I regret nothing). At age 33, I also resolved to live the rest of my life WITH NO REGRETS. As a first step, I left IBM and started my own business. And the rest is history.

Here’s now that March 3, 2010 recording on my old piano which I made as a virtual improvisation, with almost no prior practice.
