sitges resting


breathing out
slowly
resting
waiting for the party
to start
again
soon the beach will be crowded
the bars filled with smoke
and laughs and flirting
and drinking a little too much
and maybe wake up with a headache
but with new found love
or not
Sitges will breath faster
and faster
until the season is over
and it can rest again
gaining strength for the next party
and live in the memories of many
who only come to have fun
while the money is counted by those who say
bloody tourists
and will miss them while
their town is sleeping
again
breathing in
slowly
and deeply
resting

rain in spain


Into the hills,
outside Sitges, Spain.

dancing in the street


a sea breeze,
sweeping through a narrow street,
clothes dancing,
like there were bodies in them,
breathing.

In Barceloneta, Spain.

sushi and tapas


Food on small plates.
Japanese style conveyer belt.
This place in Barcelona mixed traditional
Spanish tapas, sushi, and Chinese Dim Sum,
and fruits.
Not a bad combination if you ask me.
Just a matter of picking the right stuff
in the right order.

I have no idea who the kid is.
She just looked so into the moving food
that I couldn't help but snap a picture.

leiber and stoller morning rock


This morning we were treated
to some truly good voices
singing Leiber and Stoller songs
at our train station in Maplewood.
Well, turns out these guys are pros.
They were there to draw an audience to
the Paper Mill playhouse in Millburn, NJ,
where they perform a musical called Smokey Joe's Cafe,
based on Leiber and Stoller tunes.
