Emigration, forced or chosen,
across national frontiers or from
village to metropolis, is the quintessential
experience of our time.
I am not (yet) facing the problem of emigration. I want my music to be acknowledged here first of all, in this country: after that, we shall see - perhaps the question will then become urgent.
On the subject of emigration, it is not my intention to dwell at any length.
Until I got married, when I used to go out,
my mother said good bye to me as though I was emigrating.
If we are always arriving and departing, it is also true that we are eternally anchored. One's destination is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things. Henry Miller
