Zurueck in Italien aus herbstlichem Bayreuth. Ich bin gestern angekommen und freue mich sehr auf der Sonne auch wenn's nicht richtig heiss ist. Der letzte Zyklus lief wunderbar und es hat mir sehr beeindrueckt, wieviel schoene und positive Nachtrichten mir bekommen sind. Viele aus dem Publikum haben mir besten Komplimenten entsprechend die Leistung und Darstellung geschrieben. Es ist wirklich ergreifend, als so viele menschen nehmen die Zeit sich auszudrucken. Ich schaetze's viel. Gestern an der Heimfahrt dachte ich viel nach einem satz aus "The Descent of Man" von Charles Darwin. Er erwaehnt, wie das Wachstum der Bevoelkerung zum Krieg, Verhungerung und soziale Unrecht und Ungleichgewicht fuerht. Wachstum, das vom Erfolg der natuerlichen Auslese stammt. Also wir, menschen, koennen das Leiden des Wachstums nicht erwarten zu entkommen. Vielleicht so eine Meinung, die auch Herbert Spencer geteilt hat, vor 150 Jahre galt. Aber heutzutag, glaube ich, dass wir solche Meinung durch universell menschlichen Mitleid in Verruf bringen sollen.

Back in Italy from an autumnal Bayreuth. I arrived yesterday evening and am so happy to see the sun again, even if it isn't really that hot here. The last cycle went very well and I was really touched to receive so many beautiful and positive messages about the performance. Many who attended the second Ring greatly complimented me on the performance and interpretation. It's really moving to see that people take time out of their lives to express themselves. I appreciate it very much. Yesterday on my trip ho e I was thinking a lot about a passage I had read from the Descent of Man by Charles Darwin. He mentioned how an increase in population led to war, starvation and social injustice and I equality. An crease which stems from the idea of natural selection. Thus we as humanity can't expect to avoid this suffering which is due to the increase in population. It can be that such an idea, which was also put forward by Herbert Spencer, may have had some value 150 years ago. These days, however, it should be our purpose as a society to discredit such an idea through universal human compassion.
