Taking Time to Smell the Flowers by Catherine Wilson is spiritual, peaceful and contemplative.
The thoughtful melody in the right hand explores stretches of 6ths and octaves, that perhaps convey the different heights of the flowers, while the left hand begins with triads that are then played note by note to suggest walking along.
