Autumn Tears Quotes
Autumn Tears is the realization of a long -standing dream of both Ted's and mine to create music that illustrates what we feel inside our hearts. The concept that flows through Acts I through III was created from an allegorical story Ted wrote that was inspired by events in his life. The music is a direct reflection of our emotions, therefore it is very personal to us. The band is a great benchmark to what can be accomplished when you feel very strongly about something and need to express it.
The story actually reflects parallels of my own personal life. The tale of the Dark Goddess Autumn and her desire to escape all the torment and hatred she has endured comes to a close with Act 3. The story itself is written in a very ambiguous manner and rather than summarize I prefer each individual get from it what they may as each interpretation will be different.
Death is life's last great adventure. I don't fear death at all. I don't think we end when we die. We become something else - what, I don't try to presume, but it has to fit our inner beings better than these fleshly mortal bodies we've been given. I think it's arrogant to try to understand the incomprehensible. I'll just live my life and look forward to whatever surprise awaits me in death.
