AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

"The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery."

Happy birthday, Debussy.


Claude Debussy was born on this day in 1862.

The sound of the sea, the curve of the horizon, wind in the leaves, the cry of a bird, leave a manifold impression on us.  And then suddenly, without our wishing it at all, one of these memories spills from us and finds expression in musical language.  I want to sing my interior landscape with the simple artlessness of a child.
