I tied my shoelaces, shook off the sand from my shoes and started to run into the night.
Who am I and why did I exist?
Why did I record this album?
Was it a race against time before I got too old?
So old that I began to forget the colours of the love stories they told me
when the moon was gliding across the night,
So old that I began to forget the warmth of the special moments
that I have shared with my loved ones.
What was I running away from?
I paused, took a breath and looked down.
I tied my loose shoelaces again.
The butterfly knots smiled back at me.
I continued my run,
Footsteps echoing in the shadows of the night.
Many nights passed.
And I found more questions and answers along the way.
I learned to see this world through the eyes of a child.
I love young children. They make me smile.
I love children who are special. They make my music smile.
These are stories of my journey inspired by all who left impressions in my life.
One day, when I am gone,
may there still be traces of my fingerprints left in this world.
