Then I went to bed

I sat outside alone yesterday for a little break! A favourite song was playing..

“Fleet Foxes/Helplessness Blues”

A song that always makes me think of ..Voltaire, in the end! It’s a song that I feel summarizes my views about this crazy world, and how ‘I’ like to live in it!

…I looked at the trees in the forest all around me, and thought to myself ‘if I ever get another dog, I will name him Voltaire’..Then I smiled at the cheeky squirrel yelling at me from atop a tree. ‘Yah! Well! LOUSY NAME!’

“Michel Sardou/Je vais t’aimer”

Such a contrast!! Such a very old song! Such a very strong song! Such an ..emotional song! It played right after previous one! It’s just the way I prefer my music: No rules. Anything goes. I love each and every song, genre…

Then I went to bed, thinking of Voltaire’s Candide, and…Le Marquis de sades…

I used to work as a graphic designer, until one day I was tragically and blissfully hit by two colliding meteors! One caused my falling in love with the world of coffee! And the other resulted in me falling out of love with the not so wonderful and nearly suffocating office culture! I left the glamour of the design world, and opened up my little café! Those were the best years of my life! I say ‘were’, because (wait! May be another time! But please do ask me if you ‘must’ know and can’t sleep tonight unless I tell you!) For the past three years, I have been living in a pyramid shape house in a middle of a green forest in the summer; a green forest buried underneath lots - I mean LOTS - of snow in the winter. I used to ‘think I still do ;)’ love the city! With its buzzing energy! I love to travel and seeing different food and coffee scenes...preferably alone! visiting ‘quirky and unusual’ places! I do not love visiting museums, hugely commercialized areas, malls and landmarks! I love old and full of heritage ‘anything’! I also love, to sit in a busy coffeeshop ‘reading quietly’ and not talking! Talking exhausts me most of the time! Watching the world unfold.. and thinking ...never does!

      1. I love White Winter Hymnal too..yes I have seen it and absolutely love it too.

        Right now Gina, I’m listening to “Patrick Watson/Broken”. A song that speaks quietly to me these days.

        Wishing you a peaceful evening in the spectacular Equator my friend.

  1. You allow music to hold you like a best friend. It’s in those moments where I minds open up and we see ourselves and our world in a way it should be. You’r words are incredibly touching. I’m happy that I finally returned to your site.
