for soprano and string quartet
Commissioned by Music Kitchen - Food for the Soul with support from Carnegie Hall in celebration of the 100th concert and 15th season featuring text by homeless shelter clients.
The encore reminds me of a day of fishing,
Fishing, all the things it entails,
From moving from one fishing hole to another,
To getting to that special spot,
Catching a small one,
And the drama of losing a potential big one,
Seeing the big one
Getting snagged on a log,
Hooking into the big one again
And eating it for dinner.
