I love all four seasons but I think autumn might just be my favorite. With the cooler temperatures come hearty soups, pumpkin pies, slow-cooked stews, and marshmallows drowning in hot chocolate. And perhaps best of all is the stunning display that the changing leaves offer us before they are lost to winter.
On a brisk October morning in the fall of ’98, I went with my family on an outing along the river. While on that walk my husband and I reflected on those things that matter most – our family, our health and the happiness that comes with an understanding of why we are here on earth. As we were experiencing the autumn forest and our three young children were darting in and around the aspen trees, the inspiration for this piece came.
The song with its two-part melody was written for children’s voices. I so appreciate my FANTASTIC group of singers who recently made this recording with me. Your brightness and enthusiasm make me smile! I cannot thank you enough.
