Standing in the Dark

This piece was written at a time in my life when doors seemed to be closing all around me.  I found solace in a Rilke poem called You Darkness translated by David Whyte.  The idea is comfort in the dark.  Sometimes when I walk in the woods at night I don’t use a flashlight so I can develop night vision.   When you embrace the darkness in your life you may discover unimagined vistas.  This piece starts out with a somber mood and suddenly, with a few lever changes, the theme is transformed into a triumphant dance.  With inner lines, agonizing suspensions, and contrapuntal motion this piece is surprisingly complex.  If you are looking for a rewarding challenge this will fill the bill.  Intermediate/advanced lever harp.
