Spanish Steps


Her table by the window at El Cafe' Salambo was perfectly positioned for taking in the view of the lively streets of GrĂ¡cia. She was intoxicated, not by the wine glass in her hand but by the people and the fervor they portrayed in life, the arts and love. Sipping slowing,  she stared. Taking in the scenery; her eyes never leaving the streets. She could hear the faint sound of the spanish guitar, it's beautiful melody followed by rhytmic clapping. Flamenco music. At the far corner of the square, among the crowds of people, a woman danced. Entranced, she left the cafe' and ventured towards the music. she saw her. A woman, with hair black as the raven, swept into a bun.with  a single rose behind her ear and a black dress that clung perfectly and swayed gracefully then violently as she turned. Her eyes piercing and her movements fluid and strong. It was as if she had ventured into a place no one could follow, exhibiting a feeling no one could understand. The concentration she displayed was intriguing, There was such amazing grace and power. A few little girls began a dance of their own, giggling, trying to mimic the beautiful dancer. A man selling flowers placed tiny flowers in their hair. They jumped and smiled in excitement. All too soon, the music stopped and the crowd broke away, she stayed there a few minutes more to watch the woman and the musicians pack away their instruments. then they were gone. Disappearing like ghosts into the crowded streets. Leaving behind only the memory of the music.

"Outside, the rain is tapping on the leaves, to me it sounds like they're applauding us, the quiet love we've made." What lyrics! Funnily enough, this song makes me long for a rainy day and a juliet balcony to sit near as i sip my tea and watch the rain drops fall.

I love flats! Flats with sequins, different colors, fabrics and textures. They add a perfect splash of color to any outfit. I came across these beautiful things on Etsy.

Artisan: EXTRASEED  - To view more lovely flats.

Music: In every note, in every word...there is a story.

I don't know why i didn't think to do this sooner. I've been doing this for so long... I wonder what inspired me to make a project out of it now?

When it comes to music, I'm won over first by the instrumentation, then by the lyrics. I have to love the way piece sounds in order to like the song as a whole. I live for the music that moves me, that makes me feel all different kinds of emotions. More often then not, while listening to music, I come up with these little stories in my head that go along with. It wasn't until today that I thought to remember the music and materialize the stories in writing.

With that, today marks the beginning of my project. For the next few weeks, i'm going to post a song, along with my personal thought, scene or story inspired by the song. I may even do a song twice (just to see if I imagine something different) Let's see how I fair...<3
