You are a Marvel

Anne Geddes inspiration for this piece was a quote (from the famous Spanish cellist Pablo Casals). It must have been around 1997, as at the time she was shooting for her second coffee table book "Until Now" and she was so moved by the words she immediately decided to feature them in the beginning of my book. For her these words so completely encapsulate her feelings about babies, and their absolute sense of promise for the future, if only they are nurtured and unconditionally loved from the very beginning. For many years afterwards, Anne Geddes had thought that it would be amazing to combine some of her imagery with the quote itself, and over the past six months she has finally been able to do so. The music contained in this piece is original, and was composed especially for this project.
