5-21 is a date, and this piece is a personal reaction during a time of great distress within my personal life. Though the piece is filled with angst, it also represents hopefulness. The piece begins with a series of open chords that are continuously layered upon. You will hear the opening motive transform, and repeat to its original state, which signals a period of stasis. Now looking back, I realize this piece marks the beginning of a new chapter. A chapter that, so far has been a positive one.
