Merry Christmas, a capella

Let it be Christmas, whatever you should do...
Just do it...

The best wishes with the best voice...

And oh - I'll be there to comfort you,
Build my world of dreams around you
I'm so glad that I found you
I'll be there with a love that's strong
I'll be your strength, I'll keep holding on
Yes I will, yes I will

Let me fill your heart with joy and laughter

Togetherness, well that's all I'm after
Whenever you need me, I'll be there
I'll be there to protect you
With an unselfish love I respect you
Just call my name and I'll be there

to you, have a good weekend!

TRANGER! if you, passing, meet me,
and desire to speak to me,
why should you not speak to me?
And why should I not speak to you?

be my baby

I am expecting a baby, my first baby, I am four months pregnant, not knowing the gender yet... But I've already got the two essential things: crayola colors and little boots:)
I feel very blessed since s(he) is being very caring with me, no symptoms of pregnancy at all, I am just waiting the belly and the kicking... As it is said, the baby really comes from Paris ( my Summer stage) ;)

And a funny way to announce it, the Ronettes way:

The night we met I knew I needed you so
And if I had the chance I'd never let you go
So won't you say you love me
I'll make you so proud of me
We'll make 'em turn their heads
Every place we go
So won't you please

(Be my be my baby) Be my little baby
(I want it only say) Say you'll be my darling
(Be my be my baby) Be my baby now
(I want it only say) Ooh, ohh, ohh, oh

I'll make you happy, baby
Just wait and see
For every kiss you give me
I'll give you three
Oh, since the day I saw you
I have been waiting for you
You know I will adore you
Till eternity
So won't you please

gracias Mercedes

Que sí, que la canción es de Violeta Parra, pero es la que más me gusta como canta...

No vamos a dejar que se vaya sola, por esto Joan Baez, para que sea nuestro canto y la acompañe...

Gracias a la vida que me ha dado tanto
me ha dado el sonido y el abecedario
con él as palabras que pienso y declaro
madre amigo hermano y luz alumbrando,
la ruta del alma del que estoy amando.

Gracias a la Vida que me ha dado tanto
me ha dado la marcha de mis pies cansados
con ellos anduve ciudades y llanos
y la casa tuya,tu calle y tu patio.

Gracias a la Vida que me ha dado tanto
me dio el corazón que agita su marco
cuando miro el fruto del cerebro humano,
cuando miro el bueno tan lejos del malo,
cuando miro el fondo de tus ojos claros.

Gracias a la Vida que me ha dado tanto
me ha dado la risa y me ha dado el llanto,
así yo distingo dicha de quebranto
los dos materiales que forman mi canto
y el canto de ustedes que es el mismo canto
y el canto de todos que es mi propio canto.

Gracias a la vida

illo from Le vieil homme et la fée


I was a quick wet boy, diving too deep for coins

all of your street light eyes wide on my plastic toys
then when the cops closed the fair, I cut my long baby hair
stole me a dog-eared map and called for you everywhere

have I found you
flightless bird, jealous, weeping or lost you, american mouth
Big pill looming

now I'm a fat house cat
cursing my sore blunt tongue
watching the warm poison rats
curl through the wide/white fence cracks

IRON & WINE, Flightless bird, American Mouth

Dressed up to the eyes
It's a wonderful surprise
To see your shoes and your spirits rise
Throwing out your frown
And just smiling at the sound
And as sleek as a shriek
Spinning round and round
Always take a big bite
It's such a gorgeous sight
To see you eat in the middle of the night
You can never get enough
Enough of this stuff
It's Friday
I'm in love

I don't care if Monday is black
Tuesday Wednesday heart attack
Thursday never looking back
It's Friday I'm in love


Friday! Have fun (but not too much:-))

Gather ye rose-buds while ye may,
Old Time is still a-flying;
And this same flower that smiles today,
Tomorrow will be dying.

sweet child

Illustrations from my book Le vieil homme et la fée.

Her hair reminds me of a warm safe place
Where as a child I'd hide
And pray for the thunder
And the rain
To quietly pass me by

sweet follies

Thoreau removed himself to the outskirts of Concord, pretending to exile himself in the woods - for no other reason than to prove that it could be done. As long as a man had the courage to reject what society told him to do, he could live life on his own terms. To what end? To be free. But free to what end? To read books, to write books, to think.

you've got a friend...

It smells like Summer,
a bicicleta y piscina
y a amigos,
a los que están,
pero más a los que no están,
y aún más a los que ni están
ni lo están pasando bien

Close your eyes and think of me
And soon I will be there

Esta es la primera canción
que tuve que memorizar para una clase de inglés,
cuando me permitía la licencia
de soñar ser cantante,
allá en esos tiempos de mi bici G.A.C.

Pues nada, vamos a enchufar la máquina de rellenar el blog,
que falta le hace...

London cure

some GREAT days in London...

Cheer up, honey, I hope you can
There is something wrong with me
My mind is filled with silvery stars
Honey, kisses, clouds of fog
Shoulders shrugging off
