    Reflections 2022 (old song/new video)

    a couple of you may remember this song from a year or so ago.
    I was never real happy with the old video, it focused more on the lyrics, and my vision was more than that.
    But at the time, strange things were happening as I was creating the original video concept, so I had to scrub it, and settled on the lyrics on a page format.
    I woke up early recently(4am) and as is my custom, as I lay in bed, I will start to think about stuff, and the idea for a new video for Reflections began bouncing around my sleepy brain.
    I wanted something a bit lighter, and without lyrics printed in the video.
    My YouTube description says it all.

    The story of an elderly man who is reflecting on his life.
    The image of the young man sitting on the moon, reminds me how, as an older person tells stories of their youth, you can actually see them become younger for a moment.
    Music, vocals and lyrics.. Richard Hermans

    Hadn't heard this before but really liked it. Great detail-oriented observational songwriting, with a very effective bittersweet tone. The images in the video are very nice and match the mood of the song quite well. The extra level of passion in the vocal delivery at 2:26 carry the sentiment of that passage home in a moving way.
