Lost is a cycle of 11 variations written in C minor. The tonality of C minor was chosen in tribute to Beethoven as it is associated with emblematic pieces by the great master like his Pathétique sonata op.13, with due regard to the year of composition, 2020, being his anniversary year.  

The variations Lost can be performed as individual pieces as well. 

Sally’s idea was to develop in clearly different ways the theme= She was inspired in each variation by a distinct subject such as emotion, weather,  a painting or the imagination; and as often happens in life, the theme was transformed, starting as a deep sorrow following through to almost the pure joy of the raindrops (var. 10) which replace there the tears from the beginning of the cycle. The finale is transformed to a dialogue with someone, connected emotionally with the theme where the dialogue is with one's self and the quiet triumph of the music over the words which are less powerful and unable to explain all the nuances that make up the beauty of our life.

A departure for Sally from writing cycles, the F minor prelude Elderflower Blossoms in my Palm is a single piece, written in the tonality of the famous Appassionata sonata of Beethoven. As with the Variations Lost, the tonality has been chosen in homage to the great master, celebrating his anniversary in the year the piece is written. In terms of student ability, it is of advanced level.

The Yellow Emoji is a cycle of nine easy-level pieces (elementary and intermediate) for children and started as an idea for a single piece entitled The Yellow Emoji has Breakfast. A few days later the notion of making a slight variation in changed rhythm sprang to mind and soon was on paper as The Yellow Emoji goes to School. While working on this second piece, talking with friends spurred Sally to create new adventures for the Yellow Emoji and in a single weekend five more Emoji stories were developed, making a whole book. The last two pieces – the Emoji in the park and at the stream – arrived soon afterwards giving Sally the feeling that the project was complete.
