Johnny and the Attractions – Young Wings Can Fly

“There is an hour of the afternoon when the plain is on the verge of saying something. It never says, or perhaps it says it infinitely, or perhaps we do not understand it, or we understand it and it is untranslatable as music.”
― Jorge Luis Borges

  1. I read Borges as a clueless young person and didn’t try hard enough. I shall try again, in Spanish, of course.
    (And, nice song, thanks!)


    1. In my experience the ‘great’ writers are too much for a young mind to ‘understand’. I read them, for various reasons, and moved on. After I lived a bit, (and maybe even because of how my life unfolded), I, (sometimes), return/d to absorb their true depth. Music also.
      Thank you for taking the time to listen, read and comment.
