The emotional pain of loss, the pain that time seeks to soften, can often be greater than any physical recovery. The body has astounding healing powers, yet the heart can be slow to mend and even slower to trust once again. Loss, whether the end of a loving relationship, death of a loved one, or diagnosis of a serious disease, often brings dramatic change and may be soothed by time, reflection and
finally, acceptance. This piece was composed many years ago, however this version was recorded for a friend, and for his father who at the time was gravely ill and near death. I’m told it was the last music he heard. Music is a powerful connection to our emotions, frequently evoking a particular person or distinct time in life. These melodies are my words of love, kindness and compassion.
