Wow, Honza you are an amazing writer and visualist. And to think you aren't even writing in your native language. Can just imagine how you'd write in Czech.

Thanks, I did find the text, although the English seems a little awkward.

Is the score available somewhere? What I'd like to do is reframe the text into idiomatic English that fits the music. The new translation would have to retain its core sense, of course.

The difficulty is that I know nothing of Czech! I would be making the new "translation" based on the existing translation. Perhaps there is someone who could check what I had done against the original?

Dear Honza:

I feel unworthy....will speak with you later about your thoughts and writings. This note is to let you know that I got on while I have a couple minutes at the libarary.


PS Sorry I do not use the above email address, but your site requires one.

In the summer you can take a paddle boat ride and watch the swans glide by two by two with the life mate.
You can hear the laughter of small children running on the path around the lake and the quite steps of others strolling hand and hand with the soft breeze upon their faces. It is a space for people to commune with nature and find a sense of peace that refreshes the soul.

Very good line

There may not be much 'new under the sun'- one of your secret wishes has already been fulfilled: Rebecca Horn's upside down piano in Concert for Anarchy in the Tate Collection, but the exquisite expression of your perceptive, innovative insights is a rare gift, not only for you, but especially for those of us fortunate to be your beneficiaries.

Art's response to your aversion to seasonal unpredictable environmental exigencies, and a preference to hibernate rather than endure them, was Gauguin who fled the dreary demands of conventional life and traditional roles for reliable quotidian meteorological conditions and existential freedom.

I would very much like to obtain the text of "A Prayer for Marta" in English. Do you know where I could find it?

Your exactly right. One of the hardest jobs of being a boss is getting people to work. They always seem to put the wrong people in charge and with a little power its my way or the highway.
