Michel Montecrossa about the ‘Light of Wonder’ songs:
“It is a journey through and diving into the realm of love’s mysteries. The simplicity of love and its unfathomable wonder.
It begins with the ‘Light of Wonder’, the realization of the precious contact with the other you, the awakening to the sense of oneness. The end of loneliness. It is the discovery of the hidden treasure of intimacy and vulnerability, of surrender to the one you love: ‘Regarde-Toi’. And it is the trust, the unreserved giving of oneself to the love done. It is the answer of greatness: ‘Forever I See Your Sweet Soul’.
The journey of love is ever renewing like the sea, like the splendor of creation: ‘Mer’.
It is like ‘Music’.
Once felt it will never leave, even in worried moods love knows the answer: ‘Je Ne Suis Que Moi’, ‘All Over The World’, ‘Blue Rose’, ‘Voila’.
Love is the answer outlasting all trouble, comforting us: ‘We Are Beautiful When Our Hearts Are One.’
And then the dream and the magic are there, again and again in moments as well as in eternity, the transcendent, childlike smile: ‘Late Afternoon’, ‘For Françoise Hardy At The Seine’s Edge’, ‘Tender Love’.
Finally the circle is complete, the story never ends yet always rests in the safety of love’s embrace: ‘Star’ and ‘Berceuse’ – you are my love and happiness.”
