duende & art & giving & searching…

I invite you…

Lorca believed that the duende fills the artistic maker with such an extreme feeling that a fresh mode of expression becomes absolutely necessary. It pressures a formal response & seeks a transfiguring music. As he expresses it…

‘The duende’s arrival always means a radical change in forms. It brings to old planes unknown feelings of freshness, with the quality of something newly created, like a miracle, & it produces an almost religious enthusiasm’…..Edward Hirsch….The Demon & The Angel

in the aftermath of your new year’s celebrating, may you find your soulful journey….
