Dreamtime is a piece by my Australian soulmate, Elissa Milne. It's a piece that has always moved me far beyond its two pages. It was beloved by my very first adult student, Barbara, who is now under hospice care. She left me her music, which I've been slowly sorting through. I found her copy of this piece, in a book signed by Elissa. They'd met at my home a few years ago. I opened that copy, full of Barbara's fingerings and comments.
Playing it, I could say all the things I felt about connection, separation, beauty and most of all love.I played it for Barbara. I played it for all of us who are sad and separated and dream of happier times.
