Aspirations of Debussy

stockvault-row-of-candles102017Yesterday, I met Claude Debussy in his “Sunken Cathedral.”

While the French composer has been dead nearly 100 years and I was crisscrossing Alabama in a Honda Civic, I felt as if we’d shared a brief, candlelit encounter.

Silly, I know. But…

Someday I want my work to speak of me with the same breathless, genuine quality that that single prelude spoke of Debussy.

A noble, romantic goal, I readily admit, but why not shoot for a star now and again?

Until tomorrow…
