Thanks for listening. I'd love to hear from you!

I like this piece and think it's well written.  Very complex and moody.  Production values, as usual, excellent. 

To my ear the piece sounds more optimistic than pessimistic.  Which is just fine for me because in spite of this world being a confused and violent place, evolution on all levels is still happening--social, moral, intellectual, spiritual and technological.  The progress we've made as humans always seems to take a back seat to the darkness and evil.  If we survive climate change and a 3rd world war, which we very well may, there is grounds for optimism.   I hope.

Thanks for posting Dave!

Thank you for listening and commenting, Jerry. I definitely lean toward optimism, and see enough signs of human resolve and determination to rise above the turmoil.

Wishing you well with your latest symphony,

Dave
