Program Notes: 
The pulse of your life: does it have a regular rhythm, is it constantly shifting, is it full of energy and vitality? What makes your pulse change suddenly? Perhaps a love, friendship, lucky opportunity, ambitious goal, exciting challenge, unexpected surprise? Do you accept the change? Does your pulse continue on as before, or is it changed forever?
