Hola my dear friends, here part of the happines to be part of The Lighthouse show, the last night.
The space inside...
Rupa and chicos of El radio Fantastique planning the night
And outside... a microphone capturing the voice of the Abuelo El Mar for the show
A piece of poem atrapado en las cuerdas...
Ceviche before the show
Last sound check, before the sunset
El cielo me quiere decir algo....
La noche start with the amazing group EL RADIO FANTASTIQUE, I ´m sorry but I was totally in shock listening every song and I didn’t take any picture...
and after that. Rupa and the April Fishes !
Calm and passion of Ed baskerville
Aqui leyendo poems in english, was my first time just in english...
---thank you Ella for the pictures---
before the sea
there was only ocean and ocean
the ocean tells me
things that the sky
doesn’t want me to know
the waves sing
love songs for
the lonely rocks
the sea breeze
enters my closed eyes
the smell of the sea
is the best transportation
the skin of the sea
shining and silky
how the sea shines
how it tells me things
when you see it
the sea feeds
on written words
on the shore
keep the shore
the only secret
your name and mine
---Translation by Nina Serrano---
A bailar con Rupa !
I wrote this poem in the midlle of Rupa singing...
Rupa rasga la guitarra con los ojos cerrados
su mente se llena de mar
de pájaros azules en el agua
de peces anaranjados en el aire
su corazón quiere salir de su pecho
las palmas del publico son las gaviotas sobrevolando la orilla
Ed hace llorar el cello
Caleb despeina palabras con voz ronca
Erick las recoge y las convierte en latido
Adrian inventa colores y Marcus los pone a bailar
la guitarra se derrite
es el cielo de la locura
es hora de un vino tinto
Bravo rupa and the April fishes !
...at the end of the night the amanecer jamm...
Awaking with the smell of the sea... is like come back towards chilhood...
El paisaje before and after the ALTAR for meditation, ---was created this morning---
The edge of the sea...
El camino que nos lleva a la caida de agua
Carlos Castillo never tell me about his piece but I suppose is this...
- - - Chau faro, hope to see you soon - - -

Aqui el PLUS, like the old 35 mm films, when we had the option to take 2 or 3 more shoots.
Flowers and beautiful view, sea and Rocks, ceviche and friends, para que mas?
paz, poesia y ceviche
