I will never know again who I am, what I am, what I love, what I want….

“.. I wanted to run out and kiss her fanatastic beauty and say: ‘June, you have killed my sincerity too. I will never know again who I am, what I am, what I love, what I want. Your beauty has drowned me, the core of me. You carry away with you a part of me reflected in you. When your beauty struck me, it dissolved me. Deep down, I am not different from you. I dreamed you, I wished for your existance. You are the woman I want to be. I see in you that part of me which is you. I feel compassion for your childlike pride, for your trembling unsureness, your dramatization of events, your enhancing of the loves given to you. I surrender my sincerity because if I love you it means we share the same fantasies, the same madnesses” The Diary of Anaïs Nin, Volume 1: 1931-1934

Spiritually drunken…Ludwig van Beethoven

“We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect.”

If you look deep enough you will see music; the heart of nature being everywhere music.

Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears
form the eyes of woman.  –  Ludwig van Beethoven
