this is really powerful Robert! I love the sweet music, the voice-over and the photo-sequence. Very well done!

Very inspiring. The combination poetry, music, pictures is excellent. (You could also add sounds like traffic, telephone conversations etc.)

Thank you, Marco and Bert. I appreciate you leaving a comment.

I thought it would be interesting to use my gentle melody with this narrative by way of juxtaposition.

I agree with Bert that a lot of field recordings would have fit well here. Lately, it seems as if I use so many field recordings, that I went more minimal, but the idea is a good one, which I would adopt if I were to do the song again.

thanks for the kind words.
