The Timelessness of Art

Primary tabs

Watching street kids groove to Fela's music while celebrating Christmas. It occured to me that this song was released 44 years ago; more than 25 years before most of these kids were born. Yet they flow along with it very well like the song is hot off the record press. It is ageless music.
My two best books of all time are Henry Miller's Tropic of Cancer and Ernest Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea. One taught me how to write from the heart; the other taught me how to do it more maturedly. Both books were written long before I was born.I still worship them till this day. They are ageless writing.
The path to immortality is to write great books and make good music.
