Laurie Anderson'dan Mesaj Var


Geçtiğimiz günlerde kaybettiğimiz usta sanatçı Lou Reed'in eşi Laurie Anderson, East Hampton Star'a bir mektup göndererek eşinin huzur içinde öldüğünü açıkladı. İşte o mektup:

"Komşularımıza: Ne güzel bir ölüm! Her şey parlıyor ve altından ve tüm o muazzam hafif ışık. Bizi kuşatan su. Son yıllarda Lou ve ben burada çok zaman geçirdik ve her ne kadar bizler şehir insanları olsak da ruhani evimiz burasıydı. Geçen hafta Lou'ya onu hastaneden çıkaracağıma ve Springs'teki evimize getireceğime dair söz vermiştim. Ve bunu başardık! Lou bir tai chi ustasıydı ve mutlu, doğanın uysallığı, gücü ve güzelliği karşısında gözleri kamaşmış şekilde burada son günlerini geçirdi. Pazar sabahı ağaçlara bakarken ve meşhur tai chi'nin 21 formunu meşhur müzisyen ellerini havada hareket ettirirken öldü. Lou bir prensti ve bir savaşçı ve biliyorum ki onun acı ve güzellik şarkıları dünyadaki çoğu insanın hayatını onun hayat için hissettiği inanılmaz zevk oranında dolduracak. Hepimizin üzerine inen, içimizden geçen ve üzerimize yükselen mutluluk uzun sürsün."

Yıllarca sanatı için savaşmış, uzun dönem kullandığı ağır uyuşturucular ile hayli yıpranan bedeniyle ustanın huzur içinde, sevdiği evde, aşık olduğu kadının yanında, güzel bir manzara eşliğinde bu dünyaya veda etmesi sevindirici. Zira yazın geçirdiği karaciğer nakli operasyonundan sonra yılların hırçın sanatçısı hayli yorgun görünüyordu.


Kendisi en son 3 Ekim günü New York'ta görüntülenmişti.

 our neighbors: What a beautiful fall! Everything shimmering and golden and all that incredible soft light. Water surrounding us. Lou and I have spent a lot of time here in the past few years, and even though we're city people this is our spiritual home. Last week I promised Lou to get him out of the hospital and come home to Springs. And we made it! Lou was a tai chi master and spent his last days here being happy and dazzled by the beauty and power and softness of nature. He died on Sunday morning looking at the trees and doing the famous 21 form of tai chi with just his musician hands moving through the air. Lou was a prince and a fighter and I know his songs of the pain and beauty in the world will fill many people with the incredible joy he felt for life. Long live the beauty that comes down and through and onto all of us.
