One of 19 epigrams commissioned from former students of Lukas Foss by Alea III
Written for Alea III's concert "Celebrating Lukas" in March 2010

Studying with Lukas meant studying Lukas himself: An 80-year-old prodigy, an enemy of soulless “musical tasks,” and a paragon of “write what you love.” This short piece is a small tribute to Lukas’s uninhibited joy in composing.
