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

Wagner, Tristan und Isolde

Sounding more clearly,
wafting around me --                                   
Are these waves of soft airs? 
Are these billows of delightful fragrances?
How they swell,  how they sough around me, shall I breathe?                                    
Shall I listen? Shall I drink, immerse?                                                
Sweetly in fragrances melt away?
In the billowing torrent, in the resonating sound,
All -- in the wafting Universe of the World -- 
Breathe, drown --                                 
Be engulfed --                                                
Unconscious -- 
Supreme delight!

Waltraud Meier performs the "Liebestod" ...
