Featuring Yehuda Solomon & Eli Nathan of Destiny fame. Lyrics by Nachman Seltzer. Arranged & Produced by: Jeff Horvitch.
Visions. There are so many visions, so many ways of seeing each and every action that we take, everything that happens to us. Our vision affects the way we focus on every single aspect and event in our lives. Our visions are with us every step of the way. They are a part of us, a connection guiding us and keeping us strong through thick and thin. Vision equals imagination, the beauty and pain that we see or feel, the sweetness of a baby’s smile, the tenderness a rebbi feels for a precious talmid.
“Visions” seeks to capture the essence of just a moment in the imagination of every one of us. We experience the conflicts that face two brothers and how they resolve those conflicts to the best of their abilities. We can envision the sheer pain of a Zeide to the future of his grandchild and join him as he embarks on a mission to save him using the only weapons at his disposal.
We can clearly see that prayer is the sole way off the stormy island we find ourselves stranded on, and we share in the vision of an anguished father begging for the life of his first child as the sun sets and Shabbos begins. We visualize our nation and how rainbow like it is, colors from every spectrum of the universe, and the glory of the first moments in the creation of the world.
We see a vision of the days we know are almost here, the days when the grandest of shofar blasts will shatter the desert silence with never ending sound and we join in the visions of a little boy as he attempts to understand why the answer from above is sometimes yes but other times no. We envision the humorous aspects of shidduchim and the poignancy of a mothers feelings at candle lighting time. All these ideas, stories and concepts are visions in one way or another. It remains for us to focus into our imagination, our visions and see the amazing world that lies within.
Creating visions, has been a moving and beautiful experience for all those involved as we watched ideas which had previously been sheer imagination, develop into something much greater than that. We watched them become Visions.
