Corner view: music


Los que me conocen, también saben la importancia que la música tiene en mi vida.
Podría haber elegido mostraros fotos de los conciertos de amigos, de los de husband, de nuestra colección de discos, de sus guitarras...
Sin embargo, me he puesto nostálgica y he elegido una foto borrosa del baúl de los recuerdos. De los buenos recuerdos. Una foto mía caminando de noche entre dos músicos americanos, en alguna ciudad que he olvidado, en unos días llenos de aventuras, carretera, viajes y nuevas amistades.
Fueron buenos tiempos.


Those who personally know me also know the importance of music throughout my life.
For this corner view I could have chosen a picture of some of my friends shows, or husband's, or of our record collection, or of his guitars...
However, I feel a little nostalgic so I've picked a blurred picture from the vaults. This is apicture of me walking at night among two american musicians, in a city I've forgotten, in days full of adventure, roads, travels and new friendships.
A great time.


Today's music:
The Smiths

AYYYYY!!!Mi chaqueta!!! ESTI!!! ya sabes que si te deshaces algún día de esa es para mi!!!! Cuantas veces te lo habré repetido. Es maravillosa.... Mi chaqueta preferida del mundo mundial!!!! Jajajjajajaja....

Por cierto... Llevas el pie derecho al revés....

Jorge said...

??? Es el de la derecha el que lleva mal el paso, Vir...

Igual es Paul McCartney...

Wau qué foot-o...Se ve que lo has pasado bien en el pasado Esti. Y la chaqueta si,como dice el hadita, quieres deshacerte algún día de ella podrías rifarla online...Sería el premio del año. Pero creo que tendrá un valor sentimental muy alto. De hecho es el grafismo mas poderoso de la foto de espaldas y parece encerrar un misterio que todos quisieramos descubrir en un plano frontal. Una vez más: con una sola foto consigues una y múltiples historias.

Photo très rock attitude ! The jacket... Good post ; )

It's funny how a picture that others may think is completely unrelated to the topic brings back a memory that is exactly on the topic! If I had used this approach, my picture would have been of three people sitting in an Indian restaurant - three people at 3am who had just wrapped up a disco session for a wedding reception. I can still remember the songs that were played and the dancing - the music lives on in my memories.

Great idea! This is a neat photo and I bet music was the topic. xoxo

Daan said...

A nostalgic photo - I tend to get quite depressed looking at old photos, even if they depict good times. Not sure why, maybe they illustrate the passing of time morfe clearly than I wish. ANyway, I loved your description of When Summer Begins down below! For our corresponding Winter: bringing out the brushed cotton sheets and duvet covers, filling hot water bottles, stopping at the side of the road on dry days to buy fire wood, stocking the deep freeze with home-made soups, taking out my coats, boots, scarves, hats and fingerless gloves, listening to rain falling on the roof ...

Music is a big part of my life (and my family's). How lucky we are. I, too, have had many days full of adventure.

Cheers to all the adventures to come!

p.s. I love the Smiths!

A mí me gustaban mucho los Smiths, (qué cosas, ya nunca los escucho), recuerdo la primera vez que los vi en el programa de la Chamorro... creo que esa noche no pude dormir, jaja!

MODsquad said...

Esta foto data de 1991?, durante la gira española titulada "American friends". A modo de gran familia, incluía a Steve Wynn, Chris Cacavas, Russ Tolman, John Wesley Harding y Giant Sand, cada uno aportando su arte. Buenos recuerdos de tiempos cuando eventos como este eran posible.
