“Everyone has moments when the monotony of daily life overwhelms to such extent that the surrounding world seems like a desert – dry, arid, boring.
But we know that seasons change…
They change in life, in relationships, in what we see or what we choose to see.
It is certain, however, that, no matter how bad we might feel, spring will soon come with its healing rain, the world will be green again and souls will blossom.
The composition “The Healing Rain” is a legend, a fairy tale about that.
A fairy tale that we can each imagine in our own way.”
