A piece inspired by my dear friend 's character as well as our friendship over the past few years. This piece was started a few years ago now while I was visiting Taiwan but just never seemed to be finished. On tidying my computer I came across it again and decided to see if perspectives had changed enough to bring it to completion. Turns out they had. Sometimes it pays to step away from a piece when you feel you are grinding it, though most of the time I advise myself to work the piece while the idea's roots have first taken hold. A great many pieces I start and lose steam for along the way don't get finished, but I often keep them and return to them in an idle moment. With the turning of the old year into the new I have a tradition of tidying house and computer before I turn to the new page. This is also a time of reflection and I found myself feeling extraordinarily grateful for the influence and color this vivacious person has brought into my life. Thank you Maquenda.
