The Baha’i New Year, Nawruz, is upon us. This is one of my favorite times of year. The beginning of spring, the new growth of buds sprouting in the garden and the warmth in the air all bring such joy and delight. It is also a period of inward growth as a result of taking the time during the Fast to reflect upon the previous twelve months to prepare for the coming year. How perfect it is that Nawruz marks the passage from winter into spring and the start of a New Year!
About a week ago, as I was reflecting on the importance of the Fast and the coming of spring, I sat at the piano and played what came to my heart spontaneously. I love capturing through my music these moments of inspiration. I never know what will come out till I play!
There’s a soft, lightness about this piece and then three quarters of the way through the song, you’ll notice a change begins to happen. The music at that point reminded me of a bursting of spring. Wishing you a most joyous Nawruz and a year full of love, light and blessings.
