Please describe what drove your creativity: 
Within each of us lies a heroic and adventurous theme in our lives, whether or not we realize it. This miniature symphony is broken down into several movements. The movements can be distinguished by their different moods and noticeable transitions between each. Each movement recognizes common stages throughout the life of a human being. The movements are as follows: 1)The Miracle of Life: Being born. 2) Childhood: Parental love. 3) Independence: Leaving the shelter of home. 4) Overcome: Overcoming any of life's big obstacles. 5) Celebration: A time of happiness and fanfare after overcoming. 6) Finding Love: A revisitation to love after lonliness, but more passionate. The hero finds a mate. 7) The Hero's Gift: With passionate love comes the bringing of children into the world. Our hero becomes a parent and grows old as the cycle completes itself. Life ends nearly the same way it begins. To experience the magnificent things we do in life, it would almost be foolish to not think of ourselves as heroes in some respect. I composed this as a personal challenge, to better myself in turning my or anyone’s ideas into music.
