We overcome the wind

This piece absolutely took my breath away. ‘Waloyo Yamoni (We Overcome the Wind)’, the climactic finale to ‘The Drop That Contained the Sea’
The Music of Christopher Tin’ concert, Cadogan Hall, London, July 19, 2016.

Seasick every day

If you don’t become the ocean, you’ll be seasick every day.

– Leonard Cohen

When I pronounce the word silence

  • Post category:Findings

When I pronounce the word Future,
the first syllable already belongs to the past.

When I pronounce the word Silence,
I destroy it.

When I pronounce the word Nothing,
I make something no non-being can hold.

This beautiful poem by Wisława Szymborska, Polish Nobel Prize winner (translated by S. Baranczak & C. Cavanagh)
