Hard to believe
This amazing artist is gone. Hard to believe. She remains such a vivid motivation for so many, a figure still so alive and still having such an impact.
Discussed. Debated. Still adored and inspiring.
She most likely, like all of us who serve this art form, so gigantic and enormous, wanted something more profound.
A love that lasts, a love that’s true. A family with the man she loved. So many take advantage of her greatness. CASH in on her glory.
Somewhere today I will pause and remember with great admiration and a fierce sense of protection, this great artist and sensitive, beautiful soul that was engraved on her voice. Brava, Maria. We are still warmed at the fire of your blazing talent.
