Suites from November Twelve was inspired by the famous book 'The Little Prince' by French aristocrat, writer, poet and pioneering aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. A friend who was in my life for a short period of time led me to this beautiful book. Inspired by Saint-Exupéry's incredible sensitivity, I wrote this poem while composing Suites from November Twelve.

Knowing is knowing

But this convoluted universe holds its numbers

Desperately trying to support us, trying to show us

In its guidance, each star changes its signs

Trying to keep us wondering, inquisitive, wanting more


What is our truth, your truth?

Will the universe tell us or is this a complex process?

I ask the universe to guide me

However all her prophets are not home

Is there such thing as day by day

Or does one moment only exist?
