The song Simplicity from the Draw Near CD was inspired by a version of Ecclesiastes 7:29 that says, “God has made us plain and simple, but we have made ourselves very complicated.” I have to be intentional to seek out and to treasure moments of simplicity. This mindset is counter cultural, like swimming upstream, due to the volume of information and the fast pace that the world brings on. I am working on new music that integrates great classical melodies with hymns, and I found this inspiring quote by Frederic Chopin. “Simplicity is the final achievement. After one has played a vast quantity of notes and more notes, it is simplicity that emerges as the crowning reward of art.”
