If you’re an explorer, you sometimes discover an artist you… adore.
It’s so good that you can’t resist : here you are exploring the whole chest, pigging out the whole thing. We are all lost souls, craving for…
But sometimes you climb “one more degree”. It’s so good that you decide something.
Keep a part for later. More in reserve. Some gas left in the tank.
This is what I did with a few masters : Puccini, Chekhov, Faulkner, Borges, Jünger. Who are yours?
I know Manon and La Bohème by heart, and pretty well some of other Puccini’s operas, like Tosca or Butterfly, and one third of Trittico. Each time I listen to a part of Turandot I’m floored… but I keep it for later!
Chekhov wrote hundreds of short stories. I have shelves of that guy! But I never read “everything”. It’s the same for Jünger or Borges, or Faulkner.
- Keep the pleasure to discover something new from a Master you love.
- One day it’s maybe to late : you’re dead. Or you’re not interested any more.
- You sometimes don’t remember if you read this or that. Even better, right?
- There’s a middle choice : listen or read once, and then wait for years.
- Years after, you read or listen… another way.
- Choose an infinite area. Restaurants in Paris for example. Hmmm?
Thanks for reading!
