This piece was inspired by David Maslanka's composition "A Child's Garden of Dreams" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sljVghbsCFc&list=PLwKmILwWklZ_kGcybRBWOIqSEkEIYuzo2) which was then inspired by a book by Carl Jung called "Man and his Symbols". In this book, a case study was discussed in which a girl recorded a list of 12 dreams that were beyond normal. This composition is inspired by Dream 12 "Swarms of gnats obscure the sun. the moon, and all the stars, except one. That one star falls upon the dreamer". Shortly after the girl gave Jung her 12 Dreams, she died shortly after. Never able to fully explain what these dreams really meant and why she had them.
