I'm not really that arrogant. My real answer is no fountainhead, only relationship with the muses.

The only thing that can stand up to the power of the Catholic church in terms of ceremony. And instead of dread, you walk out of there feeling replenished, closer to God.

My sister married a consumate musician, of classical tendency but, you know, French, modern French, bohemian. in the wedding, at which I was best man, he had some music friends over and they sang a bunch of these songs. I was dancin and swayin. People were like wut. I was feelin it. I even resented them a little as, being bohemians, they didn't go for the true power. But their understanding of the music was correct enough and I felt that shit. Felt so so bad for the others there, unwilling or unable to feel the grace, awkwardly seeking to join the dance but like in a catholic way. But the grace was there, it didn't matter.

Yeah. That shit.

When you realize it sprang from the exact same ground as this:



You be like damn. You come close to understanding the power.

Spanish: dances are for sexy

Africans: dancing is for invoking spirits

Spanish: we can work it out.

Only time I came close to Christianity was in Savannah in a black baptist church. The pastor was a man of god, no doubt. I just already had my own gods. I couldn't do it, I told him, even though I allowed him to pray for me and explain what he thought Jesus is. I was definitely impressed and moved.

My grandfather later sent him a letter.
"Many thanks from a grandfather".
