This is how it feels when I sing
“I was set free! I dissolved in the sea, became white sails and flying spay, became beauty and rhythm… I belonged, without past or future, within peace and unity and a wild joy, within something greater than my own life, or the life of Man, to Life itself. When I was swimming far out… I have had the same experience. Like the veil of things as they seem drawn back by an unseen hand. For a second you see – and seeing the secret, are the secret. For a second there is meaning!” -Eugene O’Neill
I love this brass relief of Verdi…… Look how he maintains his supreme focus while life and laments and even music tries to distract him…..what would he be saying these days? What a brilliant genius at any time of his creative life…..
