02 What We Hold Dear

02 What We Hold Dear
    Early on, this song evoked feelings of loss yet also feelings of love. Seemingly contradictory but as it turns out: not at all. In searching for artwork involving loss, I came across what would become the album art for the CD. It was a very emotional piece titled “Where We Once Lived” by Daniel Berard. I thought about it for an instant and realized the title could be “What We Still Have” (!) and then later “What We Hold Dear”. Hence the concepts of loss and love became united. The emotive cello is played by Jordan Schug.
