"Alles ist Eins", Reiner Maria Rilke Un giorno, al limitare del bosco, uniti in solitudine e festanti, come fiamme, lo sentiamo: Tutto è uno. Saldi dentro il nostro abbraccio; in mezzo a distese in ascolto attraverso le morbide vesti cresceremo come rami gemelli. Il risveglio di un soffio di vento culla l’oleandro in fiore: vedi, ormai non siamo diversi da lui e a quel soffio anche noi ci culliamo. La mia anima avverte che indugiamo alla porta. Si sofferma e ti chiede: Mi hai portata fin qui? E ti affiora un sorriso così lieto e felice e subito proseguiamo nel cammino: porte che si schiudono… E svanisce per sempre ogni dubbio, la nostra via non sarà più dolore, sarà un lungo viale oltre tempo del giorno trascorso. "Poppies in October", Sylvia Plath Neppure le nuvole assolate stamattina riescono a dare gonne come queste. Neppure la donna nell’ambulanza il cui rosso cuore sboccia così stupefacente dal cappotto. Un dono, un dono d’amore del tutto non richiesto da un cielo che pallido e infiammato accende i suoi monossidi di carbonio, da occhi che si arrestano torpidi sotto le bombette. O Dio, che cosa sono io perché queste bocche tardive si spalanchino a un grido in una foresta di gelo, in un’alba di fiordalisi?

about

instrumental solo classical guitar songs.

constantly hovering between the mystical sides of nature
and the neverending mazes within my heart.

these songs were created over a long time span: they are signs & experiences & scratches & barren clouds & starlit nights along my path. all in all, they create a sort of biography in 11 single episodes. as such, this is not an album that I decided I'd make - it's the first to come about, but it grew out of itself & myself, within and without the folds of life. and in the end I am that leaf: maybe a bit frail and tattered on one side, but free to wander, along the wind.
