1. Know the past through culture and art.
2. Bring the holistic truths into the present and never be satisfied with
simple literacy as a substitute for the subtlety of language.
3. Realize that being able to read the time capsules of your past are
essential to working within the present and imagining the future into
4. Singing, dancing, acting the works of your cultural past allows you to
experience them in a way that reading will never touch. Playing the great
works of art or singing the great choruses will both explain the horrors
of the past and the violence of the present as well as the ideals that
make life tolerable.
I just enjoyed the heartfelt, slightly uncomfortable singing of Dame Kiri
as she touched her past on the CD Kiri sings Maori.
What seems on first hearing to be kitsch changes as you listen more
I wish you well.
