Programme Note:
Tabula Rasa - This Latin phrase translates as "Blank Slate" in English.

Composer Don Macdonald had a specific image in mind when composing this music.

A quiet moment between a mother and child when the mother sees, as she has never seen,

the potential of the precious life she holds in her arms.

A silent acknowledgement of her child and every child as a "blank slate"

with seemingly limitless potential.

    In my arms, breathe.
    Life without limits.

    Within you are boundless futures ,if you are given freedom;

    freedom to imagine,
    freedom to love,
    freedom to be loved.
