The Flight of the Dragonfly in Front of the Sun | Joan Miro, 1968
"I fled to the absolute...I wanted my spots of paint to be open to the magnetic beckoning of the void...
I was interested in the void, in perfect emptiness.”
These songs are my attempt to translate that feeling of being awake yet on the fringe of dreaming -
hyper-sensitive and balancing delicately between the situations of life. In that moment you can achieve
(what feels like) a perfect kind of lucidity; an awareness of everything as it actually is. It is a rare and
beautiful place to be. Cohen talks of this feeling as being in a 'state of grace', and those words are about
as fitting as I can find or have found thus far.
