Live - Run to the Water

Live, so great a band! They've got fantastic tunes, some moving, some exiting, and some others bringing different emotions to oneself. I've decided to post the song titled "Run to the Water" performed live at Pinkpop Festival 2000, which is held yearly in the Netherlands. I find their live performance pretty amazing, with all this crowd of people singing to the air.
I'm also posting along the lyrics of this song, because I think they help feel the sense of the act itself.
Amazingly incredible!! :)




Oh desert speak to my heart
Oh woman of the earth
Maker of children who weep for love
Maker of this birth
'Til your deepest secrets are known to me
I will not be moved
I will not be moved

"Don't try to find the answer
When there ain't no question here

Brother let your heart be wounded
And give no mercy to your fear"

Adam and Eve live down the street from me
Babylon is every town
It's as crazy as it's ever been
Love's a stranger all around

In a moment we lost our minds here
And lay our spirit down
Today we lived a thousand years
All we have is now

Run to the water
And find me there
Burnt to the core but not broken
We'll cut through the madness
Of these streets below the moon
These streets below the moon

And I will never leave you

'Til we can say,
"This world was just a dream
We were sleepin' now we are awake"
'Til we can say

In a moment we lost our minds here
And dreamt the world was round
A million miles fall from grace
Thank God we missed the ground

Run to the water
And find me there
Burnt to the core but not broken
We'll cut through the madness
Of these streets below the moon
With a nuclear fire of love in our hearts

Yeah, I can see it now lord
Out beyond all the breakin' of waves
And the tribulation
It's a place and the home of ascended souls
Who swam out there in love!

Run to the water
And find me there
Burnt to the core but not broken
We'll cut through the madness
Of these streets below the moon
With a nuclear fire of love in our hearts

Rest easy baby, rest easy
And recognize it all as light and rainbows
Smashed to smithereens and be happy
Run to the water (and find me there)
Run to the water

Florentine monk



Un fraile con su tradicional atuendo en las calles de Florencia esperando al autobus. He descubierto la diferencia entre monje y fraile: el monje no suele salir del monasterio y se dedica a la oración mientras que un fraile es trasladado a diferentes lugares y por lo tanto no tiene un hogar fijo y no se le puede relacionar con ningún sitio en concreto. Por lo tanto, no podría afirmar que este monje sea realmente Florentino. A sus espaldas se encuentra la característica fachada de la Basílica de Santa María Novella, con sus arcos alternados con marmol verde y blanco. El fraile permanece ausente, contemplando el movimiento humano y de automóviles en la Via Panzani. Probablemente agradecerá que se acerque el ocaso, ya que esto significa que el Sol deja de ser una molesta y ardua esfera dorada, y llega por fin la calma y serenidad del crepúsculo y atardecer, refrescando ligeramente el ambiente hasta el punto de la calma y equilibrio de temperatura.

Back again

After the whole of summer, I'm posting again to start on the dynamic of uploading and sharing words and experiences. About three weeks have passed (wait a mo, exactly a month!) since I got this entry entitled "Old Bridge" up on the blog. This is the 13th photo I upload regarding my travel through Europe, and I paused for summer on this picture of an old woman on the famous Ponte Vecchio in Florence.
I think I'll continue posting pics of this trip (which I did a year ago) and then start with a pile I've shot over this fading summer. I hope these days have been inspiring for everyone and that you have found peace and joy wherever you've been.
Have a nice weekend and I'm looking forward to the posting of new thoughts and imagery :)
