Duende (for Joe Jarrah) - This is the fifth image I have created with a Flamenco theme. Though I thought each one worthy of posting publicly, in the back of my mind I always felt something was missing.
Thank you, Joe, for reminding me of duende which I had completely forgotten about. What is duende? I suspect if one asks ten bailaoras, you'll get ten answers so here goes mine.
It is when the intensity of dancing Flamenco brings out a passion and joy felt so deeply it causes pain, grief, and tears to emerge. Like when a parent remembers a child's first stumbling steps as he or she strides across the stage to be awarded their degree.
I hope Murphy's expression captured that.
