Days of Awe

I have been in the midst of the High Holidays, celebrating the creation of the World, and also marking a time of reflection -- leading up to Yom Kippur, The Day of Atonement.

These are the Days of Awe that lead me to contemplate how the past year has been, and my dreams, hopes and prayers for the upcoming year.

The word "awesome" is used today to describe a pizza or a very good movie. But for me, awesome depicts an experience that fills one with a little fear, perhaps, and amazement.

I wrote a short compositional sketch that expresses where my heart and mind are at this time of year. Please click here to listen to this music.

Happy Holidays! May this new year be good and sweet for you.
