Debussy – Claire De Lune

Young Irish Woman


Ireland 1996

The Dandelions nourished by the good dead Christians colourfully testify by the ancient altar while the grass grows to decay by the window that was God. Death, history, obedience, continuity, hope, hopelessness and stony silent resilience.

On the other side of the wall walks a young woman, marginalized yet pivotal in the scheme of things; a centre of radiation more powerful by the dis-placement. Youth, fecundity, obscurity, defiance, and a down-hill bivarication forward.

A pretty Irish girl, at least, walking down the street with her arms crossed under her breasts.

Happily ensconced in laid-back Moana where everything is for sale and nothing is selling. The view and the humidity is to die for. There is nobody here. Been like this for a while.

I like it; of this we will see more; I imagine.
