Braulio Rivas A good way to complete the cycle that started with Water & Sky. You just couldn't understand it all with just one of the two albums. Maybe because this represents the integrity of the emotions. That is good to know! Favorite track: Above.

In youth, we find play nearly anywhere and any time. Caregivers bring us playgrounds by way of security and opportunity to explore.

As adults, we find success by building and thriving in playgrounds we make ourselves. Success is in the moments we fill work with play.

Play is a relaxed focus connecting the world and ourselves in mutual discovery, transformation, joy, and fulfillment.

It is in play where we find our own meaning.

It is without play where we risk depression.

Depression is a cloudy, listless world where meaning is empty. Relationships ring hollow, work is tortured, and confusion reigns as the playgrounds collapse.

The mountains, rivers, and canyons drawn as our emotional landscapes begin early.

Their grounds continue to form, shift, and become throughout life.

When mired in sadness, we can find meaning in exploring and cultivating the landscapes towards a hope that they will one day again foster and inspire play.

Water, Sky, Sun, & Earth present these emotional landscapes in quiet contemplation.

Water & Sky reflects depression through notes of sorrow and occasional moments of awed beauty appearing from behind the clouds.

Sun & Earth offers a peaceful, contemplative play bringing to mind a toddler in a simple and relaxed focus of play.
