In college, I realized that strength did not mean being masculine, and that feminists do not need to have tattoos and play rock rock music. Amos has a strength and a will about her is cultivated by her handling of the piano. Some of the most hard-hitting songs are piano-only ballads with soaring melodies and delicate vocals. Through listening to Amos, I learved that some of the strongest songs in this world are the quiet ones.
After some time, I began to discover much about myself through playing that piano. The gentle and the strong collide like a painting in lilac, violet, crimson red, and cobalt blue. Thank you Tori Amos for being there in my car stereo.
