    “To be like a beggar when it comes to writing music, whatever whenever and however God gives.”

    Like Avro Part, Heidegger emphasizes the “Es Gibt” of creativity. Anyone who has stayed up all night hopelessly searching for inspiration, when suddenly “it comes to them,” knows what this means. The Greeks spoke of this in terms of The Muse. The Greeks had a singular sense of the giveness of Being. Take Socrates, for instance, with his Daimon, or Parmenides with his Didactic poem which he credits to the Goddess.

    ” a thorn in my flesh”

    Avro, referencing Paul, acknowledges what is often said: Artists often suffer their genius. It reminds me of Nietzsche’s aphorism:

    “Being Satisfied. We show that we have attained maturity of understanding when we no longer go where rare flowers lurk under the thorniest hedges of knowledge, but are satisfied with gardens, forests, meadows, and ploughlands, remembering that life is too short for the rare and extraordinary. ” Nietzsche, Human All Too Human, 399
