Sun-mer :)

maria mola

Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And I say it's all right

Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And I say it's all right

 Here comes the sunLennon, Harrison & McCartney

Beach day!

'Cause it feels like summer again
I was thinking that it just might never begin
After winter and spring
It's good to have the sun on my face again

Spring break for mommies

Foggy nostalgic day, captioning:
'A Spring break for mommy'

I hear her voice in the mornin' hour she calls me
The radio reminds me of my home far away
And drivin' down the road I get a feeling
That I should have been home yesterday, yesterday

Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain momma
Take me home, country roads

Take me home, country roads, John Denver

Tous les garçons et les filles de mon âge
Se promènent dans la rue deux par deux
Tous les garçons et les filles de mon âge
Savent bien ce que c'est d'être heureux
Et les yeux dans les yeux et la main dans la main
Ils s'en vont amoureux sans peur du lendemain
Françoise Hardy,Tous les garçons et les filles

Julius cookbook

Julius was a pusillanimous cook.
He cooked the best stories at night when nobody could taste them and overanalyze: 'too salty','too spicy',... 
The ones from scratch, those were the tasty ones.
The ones he would never ever sell.
I have always fantasized about Julius cookbook, 
and since a little girl I have tried to find it...

New Print

¨Longing for Spring¨, 8¨x10¨
available here

*  *  * * * *
La gota de rocío 
del cielo se cayó, 
y en ella el amor mío 
la carita se lavó. 
Pero era tan temprano 
que no salía el sol, 
y se helaron las manos 
y mejillas de mi amor. 
Creí que las estrellas 
la iban a buscar, 
y que en su cara bella 
se ponían a jugar. 
Me dijo ''tengo frío, 
acércame calor'', 
y fuí con tanto brío 
que encendí su corazón. 
Y mientras la besaba 
me dijo en un temblor: 
''esto es lo que faltaba 
para que saliera el sol''. 

Oh! gota de rocío, 
no dejes de caer, 
para que el amor mío 
siempre me quiera tener. 

La gota de rocío, Silvio Rodríguez

I am the giraffe...

'Loner. You're a sort of a loner, but you are very brave and a quick thinker. You have a little secret: you like to help others. Soul Mate is the Red Jaguar, but you hate the Marroon Panda.'
