In 2021, I was thinking a lot about journeys. This certainly had to do with how much our collective journeys had all been taking unexpected halts, turns, and detours during 2020-2022.
Geometry teaches us that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line, but the reality of life is never so simple. Our journeys rarely adhere to the straightforward directions we may expect. This piece, beginning lamentfully and wandering with sliding lines, morphs into more kinetic and zigzagging lines as it gains energy and direction. The unexpected and contrasting music reflects on the unpredictability of life as we navigated our way into 2022.
