The Passion of Flamenco, It Holds You Fast

Sevilla, España

All around you, swift, so swift,
it comes, it goes, and then returns …
you think you hold it fast, it flees
you think you’re free, it holds you fast.

The aria Habanera, Carmen, lyrics by Georges Bizet
English translation.

    1. The little girl was in Granada, Spain at an outdoor local flamenco event. The dancers were in Sevilla where I spent 6 weeks this year. I’m cooking and creating again so stay tuned. Thanks Elaine.
