“The music presented here has been written and performed from a decidedly different point of view than my other work. It not only helps tell the story for which it was created, but attempts to capture that “sense of wonder” that childhood possesses – that “sense of wonder” and playfulness that seems to be so fundamental to life, and that with a little luck (and perhaps some hard work), a person can recreate in his own daily experience.
“The title of this recording is a bit of a misnomer. At this writing, I am on the eve of welcoming my first child into the world. I find myself rapidly approaching one of the most truly “wonder-filled” experiences a being can have. And so I would like to dedicate this recording to my child and wish him a well and sage journey through his life. “
