Initially, I wanted to get the concrete emotions that the song represented. To do so, I listened to the whole song multiple times, and wrote down things that I thought of afterwards. Additionally, I asked multiple friends to give me words and emotions that they thought the song represented. After collecting responses from myself and others, I decided that the overall theme of the song was of nostalgia. 

I thought of ways to represent nostalgia, and initially I wanted to create a broken hourglass. I had a way to get broken glass, but I could not locate a source of sand. As a result, I switched to another plan. Instead of using a literal figure of time, I went with leaves because leaves show the progression of time by color. I thought this would be a great way to symbolize the passing of time because color is distinct and directly noticeable.  

I was inspired in part by Notations 21. In it, Theresa Sauer attempts to reveal the emotions of over 100 composers and musicians and how they are experiencing music visually. I wanted to incorporate the emotions of a group of people, so I seeked the feedback of others in creating my art.
