Laura Nyro, New York City. I just knew that, in life, music was the language that I wanted to speak. I was very drawn to the arts because I perceived something divine happening there.
I think that in music there’s a oneness, there’s a sweetness. Or there can be. What I call music, anyway, the music I like. I go to it for that oneness and that sweetness. If you look at the world, there’s so much separation. It’s all polarities, wars. But to sense a oneness and a sweetness, I mean, that was it. That was the ultimate. The best thing in life. ~ via performingsongwriter
(This whole interview is gold, btw. If you’ve been wondering why people keep talking about her, this is a great place to start.)
