about

I composed this tune mid 2004, commemorating the 35th anniversary of the landing of men from Earth on the moon. My inspiration came from photos which the Apollo astronauts took of the earth rising over the moon horizon when orbiting the moon. Below I include some of the Astronaut's impressions on viewing the Earth from the Moon.

My thought's on this are that the awe-inspiring creation of God that is Earth is manifested by its hypnotizing view from space. If we were to be visited by beings from another planet (or dimension), as they approach Earth, they would become captivated by its full-color splendor. Since from space you cannot see any boundaries drawn between countries on Earth, they would presume a peaceful, conservationist people must inhabit such a wondrous planet. We know how far from the truth this is because of our national, political, religious, cultural and ideological differences, as well as our apathy towards the environment.

If all the leaders of the world were to travel together in a spacecraft to the Moon and see the Earth from there, perhaps they may change their perspective about our coexistence on our planet and figure out ways for us all to live and prosper together in peace and harmony while protection the environment. ...Or not, in which case we can leave them up there on the Moon.

As you listen to this song, please imagine yourself sitting in lounge chair at the Sea of Tranquility on the Moon and instead of watching a sunrise, you are seeing the Earth rise.
