In this track I was inspired by the book written by Antoine de Saint Exupéry:
In the early part of the 20th century the first pioneer-pilots of the airmail service often gave their lives on long night flights over continents and oceans. They used compasses for directions and the stars, and demonstrated an incredible sense of duty.
The main theme is: ...whether doing what is necessary to meet a valuable long-term goal is more important than an individual's life.
I may add lyrics or a poem to introduce the piece...
“Clear skies, no wind....”
Shadows of valleys and plains
Strips of long enamel clouds
Ripples of icy blue.....etc...
The cello part is replayed here live by my friend Patrick Tapio Johnson.
