Think About It Thursday

"In the best of times Nina could embrace the mysteries of her art, finding comfort in the ineffable.  "Did you know that the human voice is the only pure instrument?" she wrote one of her brothers.  "That is has notes no other instrument has?  It's like being between the keys of a piano.  The notes are there, you can sing them, bu they can't be found on any instrument.  That's like me.  I live in between this.  I live in both worlds, the black and the white world.  I am Nina Simone, the star, and I am not here.  I'm a woman.  My secret self is between these worlds."" - Princess Noire by Nadine Cohodas
