About the Music

I was inspired to write Fanfare for a New Day after coming across the following poem by Ralph Waldo Emerson.


“Write it on your heart

that every day is the best day in the year.

He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day

who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety.


Finish every day and be done with it.

You have done what you could.

Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in.

Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day;

begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit

to be cumbered with your old nonsense.


This new day is too dear,

with its hopes and invitations,

to waste a moment on the yesterdays.”


 My rough interpretation: Approach each day like it will be the greatest day of your year. Acknowledge your anxieties, and overcome them to the best of your abilities. Finish each day knowing you did your best, learn from your mistakes, and move on. Each day is too precious to waste a single moment worrying about yesterday.
