But what a humiliation for me when someone standing next to me heard a flute in the distance and I heard nothing, or someone standing next to me heard a shepherd singing and again I heard nothing. Such incidents drove me almost to despair; a little more of that and I would have ended my life - it was only my art that held me back.

Who has undone the rain I heard your people calling out On the dry plains of Africa Nothing grows, nothing shows a breath of life Dry dust in the morning light I heard them singing Give them your love -- lead them to a land of plenty Will I ever see your people here again? I heard them singing -- I heard them calling out your name Will I ever see your face again?
