I had my share - and perhaps a very large share - in the extravagances of Spain. But it was in another country that that irremediable princess, with her wild beauty and that voice, appeared. 'Mira coma vengo yo,' went the rather accurate words of the song she sang. That day we listened no more. I loved that Andalusian for a long time. How long? 'A time commensurate with our vain and paltry span,' as Pascal says. 41 PANEGYRIC 1 I have even stayed in an inaccessible house surrounded by woods, far from any village, in an extremely barren, exhausted mountainous region, deep in a deserted Auvergne.

But it was in another country that that irremediable princess, with her wild beauty and that voice, appeared. 'Mira coma vengo yo,' went the rather accurate words of the song she sang. That day we listened no more. I loved that Andalusian for a long time. How long? 'A time commensurate with our vain and paltry span,' as Pascal says. 41 PANEGYRIC 1 I have even stayed in an inaccessible house surrounded by woods, far from any village, in an extremely barren, exhausted mountainous region, deep in a deserted Auvergne.
