A letter in the mailbox. This line in elegant type:
"Welcome to the United States"

Green card.
Do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do do do

Walk on the wild Side, Lou Reed

It feels sooo long ago.

Spooky sweet bugs

- Hi, Lady Bug.

(Not close to my reaction to bugs...Now I developed a new phobia: arachnids!
Recently I had to protect my family from one whose body (without legs)was peanut- sized!)

Freckled project

Old sketch for a (failed-)project. Guess who?
I am Pippi Longstocking.
If you say it fast it's funny.
Pippi Pippi Longstocking,
how I love my happy name

Have a good weekend!

* * * *  

Please, remember me happily
By the rosebush laughing
With bruises on my chin, the time when
We counted every black car passing
Your house beneath the hill
And up until someone caught us in the kitchen
With maps, a mountain range, a piggy bank
A vision too removed to mention

IRON & WINE, The trapeze swinger

that (roasted) dark side

The Constant.
And then, those naive plots...
Like somebody banksying coffe pots around the city...
It makes me laugh every time it comes to my mind.

the magic of reading

The magic of reading...
It always calms their bunny soul 
after and exhausting day.  
Those vintage paper things still have that magic.

Sticky identity

Identity sticks with you, you don't decide.
Can't run away from identity. Sticky identity...

* * * *

“In Spanish añoranza comes from the verb añorar (to feel nostalgia), which comes from the Catalan enyorar, itself derived from the Latin word ignorare (to be unaware of, not know, not experience; to lack or miss), In that etymological light nostalgia seems something like the pain of ignorance, of not knowing. You are far away, and I don't know what has become of you. My country is far away, and I don't know what is happening there”
                                  ― Milan Kundera, Ignorance

Have a la-la-la weekend!

In desperate need of a la la la time 
- we've been chaining different types
 of viruses and bacteria 
since arriving one month ago.
Soooo tired.
* * * *

I am a passenger
I stay under glass
I look through my window so bright
I see the stars come out tonight
I see the bright and hollow sky
Over the city's a rip in the sky
And everything looks good tonight
Singin' la la la la la-la-la la
La la la la la-la-la la
La la la la la-la-la la la-la

Iggy Pop, The passenger

Fresh air

Finally some fresh air for the teenager mind
(Missing Philly Fall )

Thursday, August 29, 2013


 I am back from one month in Spain
with some unfortunate health issues, but a a few days at
 the beach cured everything.
Already missing that mediterranean light.

Cloudy heart

 Instagraming my favourite manimal pets crossing the 
Atlantic sky at their own chosen speed...
Have a good Summer weekend
* * * * *
Go lightly from the ledge, babe
Go lightly on the ground
I'm not the one you want, babe
I will only let your down
You say you're lookin' for someone
Who will promise never to part
Someone to close his eyes for you
Someone to close his heart
Someone who will die for you an' more
But it ain't me, babe
No, no, no, it ain't me babe
It ain't me you're lookin' for, babe.

Go melt back into the night
Everything inside is made of stone
There's nothing in here moving
An' anyway I'm not alone
You say you're looking for someone
Who'll pick you up each time you fall
To gather flowers constantly
An' to come each time you call
A lover for you life an' nothing more

on what is NOT love: lovely duet version Joan Baez &  Bob Dylan, It ain't me babe

Ma triste patrie: le Métèque

I woke up with a chat message from a friend: ¨Moustaki¨
Le Métèque is gone.
La Méditerranée est un peu plus loin aujourd'hui. 

Moustaki made loneliness pure white...

Pour avoir si souvent dormi
Avec ma solitude
Je m'en suis faite presque une amie
Une douce habitude
Elle ne me quitte pas d'un pas
Fidèle comme une ombre
Elle m'a suivi çà et là
Aux quatres coins du monde
Non, je ne suis jamais seul
Avec ma solitude
                         Ma Solitude, G. Moustaki
