Enescu in France
George Enescu was a Romanian Composer. When he was in France, he was known as Georges Enesco. I like his surname. This blog is actually not about composers approximately 99.984% of the time.
On a day like today, my master William Faulkner said, “I decline to accept the end of man.” I would fall unworthy of standing in this place that was his, if I were not fully aware that the colossal tragedy he refused to recognize thirty-two years ago is now, for the first time since the beginning of humanity, nothing more than a simple scientific possibility. Faced with this awesome reality that must have seemed a mere utopia through all of human time, we, the inventors of tales, who will believe anything, feel entitled to believe that it is not yet too late to engage in the creation of the opposite utopia. A new and sweeping utopia of life, where no one will be able to decide for others how they die, where love will prove true and happiness be possible, and where the races condemned to one hundred years of solitude will have, at last and forever, a second opportunity on earth.
by In the wake of Gabriel García Márquez’s death, wisdom from his 1982 Nobel Prize acceptance speech. Complement with Faulkner’s iconic 1950 Nobel speech on the role o the writer as a booster of the human heart, which Márquez bows to here. (via explore-blog)

"There was only one minor little problem - the cup of the bathing suit had wire in it and it was badly scratching Marilyn’s bosoms.Her skin was all red on her breasts. She suffered a lot, but did not complain at all."  - Andre de Dienes on his photoshoot with Marilyn Monroe at Tobey Beach in 1949.
