Gazing up to a clear winter sky during a cold star filled night fills you with inspiration for music creation. My friend Anna Juneby and I have many things in common and one of those things is STARS! When she lived in Sweden we used to go out in the middle of the night, watching the stars in the winter sky. She’s now living in Florida, far away from my home. But there’s a quote:
“Good friends are like stars, you don’t always see them but you know they’re always there”.
One night I was playing the piano and improvising as I often do. Anna lived in our home at that time and as she heard the music she told me – you have to record the song! So I did, and named it Orion, inspired by the beautiful description from the words of author Ellen White:
“Dark, heavy clouds came up and clashed against each other. The clouds parted and rolled back; then we could look up through the open space in Orion, where God’s voice came from. Heaven will come down through that ‘open space.”
