Video Response to Duende

A most startling and beautiful thing has happened. A woman named Yvonne has posted a video response at YouTube to my Duende slideshow (the one with music). Her primary language is Spanish; however she has made the video in English for me. Oh, isn't art just the most powerful way to bring people together? Do watch the video; it is beautiful.

You can watch the movie at YouTube here:

I've watched the videos, including this latest response to yours. Yes, it is intriguing, as she says. But I am more confused than ever about duende. In my Cassell's Spanish/English dictionary duende is defined as a noun for a goblin, pixie, gremlin, sprite, or leprechaun, and also for the act of being up to tricks, or turning up unexpectedly. Nothing about death or darkness in there. Nothing about gremlins or tricksters in the videos. I don't get it. Teagrapple

How marvelous for her to make you a video response in English!



About Me

"I was no better than dust, yet you cannot replace me. . . Take the soft dust in your hand--does it stir: does it sing? Has it lips and a heart? Does it open its eyes to the sun? Does it run, does it dream, does it burn with a secret, or tremble In terror of death? Or ache with tremendous decisions?. . ." --Conrad Aiken

Fave Painting:  The Three Ages of Man and Death

From the First Chapter

The Secret of Hurricanes : That article in the Waterville Scout said it was Shake- spearean, all that fatalism that guides the Kennedys' lives. The likelihood of untimely death. Recently, another one died in his prime, John-John in an airplane. Not long before that, Bobby's boy. While playing football at high speeds on snow skis. Those Kennedys take some crazy chances. I prefer my own easy ways. Which isn't to say my life hasn't been Shake-spearean. By the time I was sixteen, my life was like the darkened stage at the end of Hamlet or Macbeth. All littered with corpses and treachery.
