Yu Yi

yù yī - 玉衣 n. the desire to see with fresh eyes, and feel things just as intensely as you did when you were younger-before expectations, before memory, before words.

"The first note is always the loudest. How quickly each feeling starts to fade as you adjust your expectations. Protect yourself by gradually tuning out the world... Until like Beethoven you find yourself pounding the keys of your life to feel anything at all."
