Can death be sleep, when life is but a dream,
And scenes of bliss pass as a phantom by?
The transient pleasures as a vision seem,
And yet we think the greatest pain’s to die.
How strange it is that man on earth should roam,
And lead a life of woe, but not forsake
His rugged path; nor dare he view alone
His future doom which is but to awake.
Yesterday, at a food tasting for the San Francisco location of Caña. Chef Chari shared his intentions; not to copy traditional Cuban.
Cubans don’t go out to eat arroz con pollo,
they can get that at home.
I’m trying to liberate Cuban food
We, the people who create; music, art, homes, and food. Have unique inspirations and retrospectives within our craft. We must liberate the our craft. Liberate classical music.
Happy New Year!
I can’t always find words to describe how I feel. But I wanted to comment and reach my heart out to the people of Newtown, CT with a Haiku and Song. Click the link for the score
Life is beautiful,
Our sickness drowns at sunset,
Cruelty fills our soul.
