Spiritus means "breath" or "life-force": I remember it was summertime and I was at my parent's house in the country when I wrote this song. I was bored and missing my lover and grasping for that golden thread that connects me to my inner self and my destiny and the world beyond. The thread of LIFE!
When I played that piano melody for the first time, something stirred inside me and I lifted out of my gloom and back onto the lighted path...!
I later added a new thought within it, a message to my former self, or even to my younger sister, or my younger friends; something that I wish I had told myself a few years ago: "Have perspective, darling! There's a beautiful big sun out there [...]! Go forth and let yourself be free beneath it!"
