This piece arose when the Anxiety Hamsters in my brain had gotten out of hand again (probably from reading the news). Fortunately, my cello is an excellent hamster repellent. So, I crept down to my studio, hid behind my cello, and improvised. Shortly after the first motif emerged, the hamsters quieted right down. And, by the time I was done recording all three parts, I had indeed Found Calm. If you are in need of some calm yourself, I hope this piece will help you find some, at least for a little while.
