Donde estaba usted?


Estaba en Madrid, querida mía, la señorial capital de España... Comiendo churros y chistorras, morcilla y boquerones, recitando a Lorca y a Machado y bebiendo vinillo de Jerez... ah! Existe el paraiso?

Thanks Sissylue, Dear Colleague from Candelaria, God Bless you... It seems you are the lucky one, ´cause I am going to post a replica of this one in Tag Heuer, as a tribute to the fact that it was there where I started posting in the Fall of ´98... It seems it was yesterday... When I started posting I was feeling very low albeit not depressed, then I started having fun with so many intelligent, learned and witty people that many times I thought I was getting addicted! That new cyber experience also gave room to fabulous cathartic
moments of bliss and understanding... but it was not easy, language and cultural barriers were sometimes hard to overcome... I am very happy I made true friends not much, but real ones that I hope to see sometime outside virtuality hopely soon, now that I am preparing a new real life in Spain, the Motherland of my ancestors... As soon as I get there, hopefully next Fall, I will post it with details so that any one could reach me there! Love to all, and don´t ever think this is a Farewell Address, I will keep posting even if not as frequent as before, since I am now , believe it or not, back in "high politics"... Well, Sissylue, thanks again for the sweet push... Love to all!!!

K... So now go Heuer to see the "landmark" ( As Zoe says: he he he)

A thousand and one K's*! That puts him up with Koufax in only three seasons! He perhaps has skipped a few proper siestas to accomplish this Borgesian labyrinthine achievement? (Does he not have enough mosquito netting on hand? Has he worn through his pajamas?) The only question that remains now is, when will he ever catch the Ryan Express--5,714? And where in the world will he be when he does it?


Today, Romancero gitano! Romance de la Luna!

La luna vino a la fragua
con su polisón de nardos.
El niño la mira mira.
El niño la está mirando.
En el aire conmovido
mueve la luna sus brazos
y enseña, lúbrica y pura,
sus senos de duro estaño.
Huye luna, luna, luna.
Si vinieran los gitanos,
harían con tu corazón
collares y anillos blancos.
Niño, déjame que baile.
Cuando vengan los gitanos,
te encontrarán sobre el yunque
con los ojillos cerrados.

Huye luna, luna, luna,
que ya siento sus caballos.
Níno, déjame, no pises
mi blancor almidonado.

El jinete se acercaba
tocando el tambor del llano
Dentro de la fragua el niño,
tiene los ojos cerrados.

Por el olivar venían,
bronce y sueño, los gitanos.
Las cabezas levantadas
y los ojos entornados.

¡Cómo canta la zumaya,
ay cómo canta en el árbol!
Por el cielo va la luna
con un niño de la mano.

Dentro de la fragua lloran,
dando gritos, los gitanos.
El aire la vela, vela.
El aire la está velando.
