created in response to On Distant Hills
composed by Brent Lawrence

The title, On Distant Hills, immediately takes me to a place where I am gazing across a view shed that includes Denali. The first half of the composition transports me to the summit of one of the foothills, with my heart beating from climbing a steep slope.  As I rest there listening to the sounds of the water, wind and rhythm of the hills in my mind and heart, a raven takes flight. I imagine I am flying across the tundra, seeking the blue sky, listening as I soar higher over the distant hills.
