Y llovió.
And so it rained.

y de la tortilla de patata de los bares, y de la Coke sin cafeina, y los solomillos y sobre todo el pan antes de comer.

Saludos.

I walked under that very same spider many years ago when it was in the Tate Modern in London. I love it so much!

P.S. I love the figure you have chosen for your banner. When I first saw her in your circle of women I felt that she was the artist who turns to her audience and sings them her song - i.e. you! Her outfit change is perfect, and I adore the tree.

P.P.S. One of your circle drawings inspired a chapter in one of my stories.

All things I love too, exept for doughnuts and licorice. I'll substitute them for champagne and capers!

danica said...

Lovely Esti! I also like bread, cameras, travels, stationary stores, converse shoes, licorice, sparling water, streetlamps, cushions, records, high ceilings, chalkboards, paperdolls and christmas light. Phew, that's quite a list :)

y tu nueva cabecera...

Para alguien, como yo, que de pequeño estudió francés y que ahora se apura por aprender inglés un poco a trancas y barrancas, está genial leer en bilingüe las cosas que te gustan.
I'll close this frame and I'll read your little dictionnary another time.

Besos, Esti.

Esti, veo que las ciudades donde vivimos se parecen mucho. Yo también suelo hacer lo mismo, eso ánima y ayuda a continuar!

Mary-Laure said...

I love your whimsical list... I love rings too, and chalkboards, and waves and the full moon and... your blog!

Beatriz said...

esti, perdoname que retroceda en tus entradas...es que he visto ahora las fotos del muelle de Las Arenas...y he podido recordar ese olor (desde Madrid)...he recordado los paseso durante la crianza de mi hijo, mis primeros amores adolescentes, ... gracias!

María said...

menudo rollete con la lluvia, la verdad!!

Marie-Louise said...

A good idea, and a smell of vanille...Mmmm (I love!!!)

Marie-Louise said...

And the big spider...I don´t remeber her name - it´s fantastic!

I love Louise Bourgeois's spiders. Infact I love all her work. Amazing. xo lj

Stardust said...

Esti, I like your list. And your idea of making a list on a rainy day. I sometimes interview my daughter and write down her inventions and thougths of life, on a rainy day..
