Something Beautiful was inspired when an unexpected illness temporarily left me with no movement in my left hand. As I sat feeling very discouraged, I suddenly realized the beautiful scene that surrounded me: The fields around my home were covered in bright sunflowers swaying in the summer breeze, above them was a blue cloudless sky, and pollen softly floated through the air. The words “God always sends something beautiful” came to my mind. Days later, when movement began to return in my left hand, I wrote this piece using an Alberti bass pattern which was the only movement I could get out of those fingers. This piece is a reminder to me that even in our hardest trials, we can always find something beautiful.
