About the book “Outsider”
Loved Chopin all my life, but never thought about writing and painting his story.
Several years ago Grazyna Auguscik suggested that perhaps it might be good idea to tell my take on Chopin. First reaction was a total surprise, one more to the countless books about him? I don’t think so… But after this conversation I started to LISTEN to Chopin, really listen to his music and I realized that I want to tell his story through my lens, through the lens of my heart. Everything about this music I’ve seen in a completely different light and came to the conclusion that this kind of talent, genius, is not human made, it comes from a Higher Power.
The process of CREATION is Divine, but in some very rare cases it is Super Divine, unexplainable to a regular soul.
When we think about it, it’s really obvious how in name of God ten years old boy came up with such an incredible music? Impossible. It’s impossible to learn it. You have to be born with IT. No one can teach how to be a genius.
It must have been divine given power.
I also thought immediately about Bernini and one of his many sculptures “Ecstasy of St. Theresa”.
To summ it up shortly—it is impossible to accomplish in a life time by an ordinary human being what Chopin and Bernini and many other geniuses did.
Simply impossible. There is no word in any language to describe the magnitude of so called Genius. The examples are countless, but I am sure that Chopin is one of them: A divine, Cosmic, Outsider.
I really appreciate Grazyna pushing me to work on this project, because in a process I’ve discovered a very important life changing lesson and now I understand a lot more how it is ‘possible” to make the impossible.
Thank you, my Friend, Grazyna
