“The palace started as a single vaulted room and grew in proportion to my despair. It began as an exercise to keep my mind from its melancholy, then it became a dream and a necessity. . . . I built a temple in my head. . . . Its hallways were as lofty as a cathedral, and the arch of each window as supple as a bow. Its corridors were the passages of my own brain.”
~ Lisa St. Aubin de Terán

Dreaming the Summer Season

"One cannot long remain so absorbed in contemplation of emptiness without being increasingly attracted to it. In vain, one bestows on it the name of infinity; this does not change its nature"

Perspectives with tulips

"A tulip doesn’t strive to impress anyone. It doesn’t struggle to be different than a rose. It doesn’t have to. It is different. And there’s room in the garden for every flower. You didn’t have to struggle to make your face different than anyone else’s on earth. It just is. You are unique because you were created that way. Look at little children in kindergarten. They’re all different without trying to be. As long as they’re unselfconsciously being themselves, they can’t help but shine. It’s only later, when children are taught to compete, to strive to be better than others, that their natural light becomes distorted"

Galuppi, Sonata in C major

The great pianist Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli (1920-1995) plays Galuppi, Sonata in C major, 1st movement: "Adagio". This is a September 1962 concert. The lovely sonata in C major by Galuppi is really a gem, in Michelangeli's marvellous interpretation.
