“Your Light” Musical Storybook, by Jillian Aversa

My inspiration for writing the musical storybook “Your Light” came from my journey into new motherhood. I wanted to do something special for my daughter—and with my musical background, writing a lullaby was a natural fit. But to make the tribute more interactive, I decided that turning the text into lyrics for a picture book would create something we could share together for many years to come.

I found the experience of creating this project during the fall and winter months to be healing because creativity is a welcome distraction from my seasonal depression (“Seasonal Affective Disorder”).
