"We are dust and to dust shall we return."

All life is, is energy; energy never dies but is transformed. It thickens and slows, sometimes freezes and congeals. The more something rots, the more alive it becomes. Not one organism, but billions of organisms, then returns to liquid, then gas, then ether, then disperses and feeds and joins new life all over again - even dust.

Indeed, as our matter is constantly recycling, so the spirit - that higher energy frequency - that super super-consciousness travels through time, becoming manifest. Matter and material - physical and incarnate - again and again and again and again, ad infinitum, up the ever-winding spiral of double-helix doubled and doubled again until we find our way home. A gain.

We are dust. And to dust shall we return.
We are light. And to light we must return.
We are heat. And to heat we will return
We are photons and neurons, gamma rays, ions and quarks.

And to such stuff as stars are made we seek to return.

Composed by M. L. Place Badarak (that's me!)
Commissioned for the 100th Anniversary of the Episcopal Church of the Epiphany in Atlanta, GA
Live performance in Spivey Hall, by IMPROMPTU
April 19, 1999.

I like the chromatic opening; it has shades of Messaien to my ear. Lovey work, Mary.
