I was deeply saddened to hear about the loss of Dani Baquet-Long of Celer at just 26. Celer made some of the most beautiful music I have come across in years.
“Lord Naoshige once said, “There is nothing felt quite so deeply as giri. There are times when someone like a cousin dies and it is not a matter of shedding tears. But we may hear of someone who lived fifty or a hundred years ago, of whom we know nothing and who has no family ties with us whatsoever, and yet from a sense giri shed tears.”
from the third chapter of the Hagakure
Sad day indeed, my thoughts go out to everyone affected.
