... the artist picks his way along, rejecting and accepting as he goes

Thank you, Olivier...


      My faith is the grand drama of my life. 

I'm a believer, so I sing words of God to those who have no faith. 

I give bird songs to those who dwell in cities and have never heard them, 
make rhythms for those who know only military marches or jazz, 
and paint colors for those who see none.

    Olivier Messiaen

                   I am brutal, but I have, or did have, a mania for precision.—Valéry to André Gide

Ἔχω δεῖ τὸν οὐρανό...

Ἔχω δεῖ τὸν οὐρανὸ μὲ τὰ μάτια μου
Μὲ τὰ μάτια μου ἄνοιξα τὰ μάτια του
Μὲ τὴ γλῶσσα μου μίλησε
Γίναμε ἀδελφοὶ καὶ κουβεντιάσαμε
Στρώσαμε τραπέζι καὶ δειπνήσαμε
Σὰν νὰ ἦταν ὁ καιρὸς ὅλος μπροστά μας
Καὶ θυμᾶμαι τὸν ἥλιο ποὺ γελοῦσε
Πού γελοῦσε καὶ δάκρυζε θυμᾶμαι

Γιώργος Σαραντάρης
