A Child is Born

Every second of every day, A Child is Born. To me, this image symbolizes the deep relationship between old life (the tree) and new life (the sprout). Neither would be whole without the other.

This tree lives near the ocean in Manly, Australia. It sits inconspicuously tucked away, against a brick wall. There are probably billions of trees out there that are more interesting than this one, but, as I walked past it, I felt oddly drawn to it.I love trees and often find myself wondering what things each has witnessed over the years. I created the music for "A Child is Born", not to specifically suggest the image of this tree, but to portray my wonderment at its beauty, the life it has lead and the new life it has created.
