In the weeks and months following my breakdown, I began to feel that there was a transformation occurring. It was as if I was being renewed and my internal world was shifting towards a more integrated self. Paradoxically, at the same time, although there was this profound shift occurring, there existed a feeling of peace and calm. I was no longer living with terror. My life could exist as it was, in the present moment and the future was no longer of great concern. It is true what is said, breakdown is breakthrough. When I was thinking about a title for this instrumental, there flashed in my mind the words ‘Space and Snow’ and I feel this is because the snow symbolises winter when the old dies away. Space is made for the renewal of the self. The one gives way to the other.
