Yesterday's Footprints

"The future lies before you, like a field of fallen snow;
Be careful how you tread it, for every step will show."
- Doris A. Wright

"We all leave footprints as we journey through life... make sure yours are worth following."
- Bob Teague

"You can't leave a footprint that lasts if you're always walking on tiptoe."
- Marion C. Blakely

Yesterday's Footprints
When hiking in the woods after a big snowstorm, its ironic that although the ground is covered in a thick blanket of snow and the trails have been completely obliterated, evidence of where exactly every animal has gone in the last few hours is clearly visible by the footprints they leave in the snow. Squirrels, deer, foxes, neighborhood dogs and yes of course human footsteps, cross-country ski tracks and/or snowshoe imprints all tell a story of previous visitors.

Like these enlightening tracks in the snow, we ALL leave a legacy of footprints behind throughout our lives: in the places we go... with the people we converse with and befriend... in the deeds we do for the community and of course... the values we pass on to our children. What will be your footprint in the ever-changing sands of time? What will be the legacy you leave behind?

About The Music
An ostinato pattern in the jazz guitar1 opens the song and propels the main body of the composition. The Native American Double Flute is featured on this tune. Although it is played as a single flute for most of the composition, the doubled drone is heard on the coda section. Acoustic bass, frame drums and strings fill out the arrangement.
