Returning Home (Songs for Peace) DIGITAL PDF ONLY



Notes: I wrote this tune one evening when I was visiting my cousin in Arizona while my daughter was playing in a soccer tournament. That evening, my cousin hosted a party for friends and family to welcome home her friend’s daughter “Sophie” from serving a mission for her church. There were more than 20 people, all making personal pizzas and cooking them in the outdoor pizza oven. I was the outsider, but had a unique opportunity to observe the joy that was felt to have a loved one return home. Once everyone had left for the evening and the few remaining people were still cleaning up, I sat down at their piano and tried to capture the soundtrack of the feelings that I had seen, felt, and heard that night. 

As we go through life, we experience emotions. I think the moments and events that cause strong emotion often bring the best opportunities to hear our own musical soundtrack. I know when I’ve taken time to sit down at a piano after one of these experiences, I am often able to find unique melodies and have my music capture the spirit which was felt in that moment, so it can be remembered and shared with others. I hope this tune will help you remember a time when you or someone you loved returned home. 

This song is perfect for relaxing, studying or helping bring a spirit of peace to the room.
