Flamenco Quote of the Day

Think of the case of Saint Teresa of Avila, that supremely 'Flamenca' woman. 'Flamenca' not because she caught a bull and gave it three magnificent passes (which she did!) and not because she thought herself very lovely in the presence of Fray Juan de Miseria, nor because she slapped the papal nuncio...but because she was one of the few creatures whose duende...not angel, for the angel never attacks...transfixed her with a dart and wanted to kill her for having stolen its deepest secret...the subtle bridge that unites the five senses with the raw wound.

Federico Garcia Lorca/Poet
