Thank you, everybody. It really means a lot, especially from this crowd.

But this is a beautiful tune. Love the guitars at the start - so full of expression - and the sound is flawed - just like all humans :-) It seems alive.
The piano by contrast is not as expressive but still well done.
Overall lovely to listen to.
Wishing you strength in what must be a difficult time as well.
The piano was a couple of Soundfonts, as I didn't have any means of recording a real one. It is, however, the only time I've ever actually recorded a piano performance of myself, and not just arranged something.

I'm glad someone caught onto that! Yes, the end of the song was meant to symbolize exactly that.
