"El fuego fatuo" - Rocío Jurado Y Paco de Lucía
Paco de Lucía - Concierto Aranjuez (Adagio).
I never paid any attention to people who told me to go out and live. I belonged always to whatever was far from me and to whatever I could never be. Anything that was not mine, however base, always seemed to me to be full of poetry. The only thing I ever loved was pure nothingness.
When one flower blooms spring awakens everywhere.
