WHERE RIVERS BEND for chamber octet       

The inspiration for the title Where River Bend came from my many walks over the years along the Maquoketa River. During these walks I would reflect upon past memories mixed with present musings while at the same time keeping an eye out for a good fishing hole.  The winding bends and channels of the ever flowing river reminds one of the winding bends and channels in the ever flowing time of life. As we flow through our lives we can never be too sure what is around the bend, but it’s the journey that counts, and if fortunate a journey sustained by the ever flowing support of family and community.
