There is so much beauty we have forgotten about in the midst of all the ugliness in DC. Raw ugliness, it is. Would that these creatures give us something good and wholesome, and memorable in a good way for a rare change.
Enter, Andres Segovia and Carlos Montoya. They will live on in memory far beyond the cretins in Congress and the White House. That’s because they were a thing of beauty and pleasure, not a thing of ugliness and pain. True greatness does not invoke fear or a visceral reaction. True greatness makes you close your eyes in awe of its presence–even generations after its creator has moved on to another plane. I guarantee you others won’t be listening to a rapper 50 years from now, closing their eyes in wonderment and bliss, but Segovia and Montoya will live on in memory.
“The evil that men do lives after them. The good is often interred with their bones”. Not so when it comes to real beauty. So enjoy your Saturday and compare two items of beauty and greatness along the way. Forget the ugliness. It will poke its horrible face at you soon enough, because it’s what ugliness does. But they are all temporary. …
….and these two guys are forever.
Hard to pick which you love most, yes?
