RIP Manolete 

The great Manuel Santiago Maya (Manolete) of Granada has passed. He will be missed.

RE: RIP Manolete (in reply to RobF

DEP maestro.

Beyond his art, I remember being impressed by the way he carried himself, physically I mean. That graceful, always upright posture with his cane. There was something very noble about it. I guess it's a dumb thing to remember about him, but I could recognize that man from a mile away just by his gait. You couldn't miss him as he made his way from his house in c/ Alberzana to Plaza Larga.

A great figure of baile, but also a fixture of Albayzin. He'll indeed be missed.


"Anything you do can be fixed. What you cannot fix is the perfection of a blank page. What you cannot fix is that pristine, unsullied whiteness of a screen or a page with nothing on it—because there’s nothing there to fix."
