Emily Jane Brontë poem

The Night is Darkening Around Me

The night is darkening round me,
The wild winds coldly blow ;
But a tyrant spell has bound me,
And I cannot, cannot go.

The giant trees are bending
Their bare boughs weighed with snow ;
The storm is fast descending,
And yet I cannot go.

Clouds beyond clouds above me,
Wastes beyond wastes below ;
But nothing drear can move me :
I will not, cannot go.

By Emily Jane Brontë


Another poem to share with you. Emily Jane Brontë english novelist and poet, she write the novel "Wuthering Heights".

Sora, Cielo, Sky


Aviator

From the air a patchwork of ochre,
grenish and silver stones,
that brighten the earth.

Take my hand, lets take flight,
let the wind entagle your red hair,
through the storms to a cloudyless land.

Crossing the sky over a flying bridge of stars,
what lies beyond this blue curtain?

In this ephemeral journey,
in this precios instant in wich you are flowing,
as the clock goes on, over the ground, FLYER!
rise your heart to the infinity soul freedom.

by Las Noches



My newest doll "Sora" she's an aviator crossing the sky of imagination, I also write a poem or kind of .......hope you like it!

I made her with fabric and acrilycs.

The art of Daniel Merriam

Daniel Merriam is an amaizing artist, I love his work so much it's full of fantasy and detail. I hope my work to be as beatuful, rich and detailed as his some day. I really don't have permission to use his images so I'm going to break rules here, it's wrong but I really want to show you his art, it's really my favorite artist in the world!

Alma ausente by Federico Garcia Lorca

Alma ausente

No te conoce el toro ni la higuera,
ni caballos ni hormigas de tu casa.
No te conoce el niño ni la tarde
porque te has muerto para siempre.

No te conoce el lomo de la piedra,
ni el raso negro donde te destrozas.
No te conoce tu recuerdo mudo
porque te has muerto para siempre.

El otoño vendrá con caracolas,
uva de niebla y montes agrupados,
pero nadie querrá mirar tus ojos
porque te has muerto para siempre.

Porque te has muerto para siempre,
como todos los muertos de la Tierra,
como todos los muertos que se olvidan
en un montón de perros apagados.

No te conoce nadie. No. Pero yo te canto.
Yo canto para luego tu perfil y tu gracia.
La madurez insigne de tu conocimiento.
Tu apetencia de muerte y el gusto de su boca.
La tristeza que tuvo tu valiente alegría.

Tardará mucho tiempo en nacer, si es que nace,
un andaluz tan claro, tan rico de aventura.
Yo canto su elegancia con palabras que gimen
y recuerdo una brisa triste por los olivos.

by Federico Garcia Lorca (1898 - 1936)




Absent Soul


The bull doesn't know you, nor the fig tree,
nor horses, nor ants of your house.
The boy doesn't know you, nor the afternoon
because you have died forever.

The surface of the stone doesn't know you,
nor the black satin where you are shattered.
Your dumb memory doesn't know you,
because you have died forever.

The Autum will come with seashells,
grape of fog and grouping mountains,
but nobody will want to look your eyes,
because you have died forever.

Because you have died forever,
like all the dead of the world,
like all the dead that are forgotten,
in a heap of dull dogs.

No one knows you. No, but I sing for you,
I sing for later your profile and your grace,
The distinguished maturity of your knowledge,
Your apetite for dead and the taste of its mouth.
The sadness that had your brave joy.

It will take a long time to born, if there is ever born,
An andalusian so clear, so rich of adventure,
I sing its elegance with words that groan,
and I remember a sad breeze for the olives.


This poem is from the spanish poet Federico Garcia Lorca, I thinks it's a very beautiful poem it matchs my actual feelings and the resent events on my life.
I try my best translating this poem, by no means it's a good transaltion, but you can have an idea of what is about, isn't?. Also I think my english is very bad...sorry

Grandfather


One week ago, November 20 my grandfather died, i't was a kill you slowly, take your money and run away kind of story, you know that kind of thing that we see on tv about people that you know very well friends, or family doing horrible things for a few coins? it's totally truee!!!! OMG!!!

This "thing" went for almost 4 months and on the last month things just keep geting worst and worst and my family and I basically stop living trying to figured out how to fix this living hell, it doesn't matter anymore, my grandfather didn't make it; in the end he could not speak, eat or breath and he had this look in his face like saying: do something!!

I wish I could say he died fast and painless but he did not.

I still don't get it, this is just! I can't even tell what this is! how is that things like this happen just like that, no justice, no witness no nothing!

Yesterday I start painting again, between that and other problems in my life, I didn't work on my art at all.

Mi abuelo murio el 20 de noviembre del 2009.
My grandfather past away, november 20 of 2009.

This is for my Sisters

Antony And The Johnsons - You Are My Sister lyrics
You are my sister, we were born
So innocent, so full of need
There were times we were friends but times I was so cruel
Each night I'd ask for you to watch me as I sleep
I was so afraid of the night
You seemed to move through the places that I feared
You lived inside my world so softly
Protected only by the kindness of your nature
You are my sister
And I love you
May all of your dreams come true
We felt so differently then
So similar over the years
The way we laugh the way we experience pain
So many memories
But there's nothing left to gain from remembering
Faces and worlds that no one else will ever know
You are my sister
And I love you
May all of your dreams come true
I want this for you
They're gonna come true (gonna come true)

Antony And The Johnsons and their MySpace Indie / Experimental / Folk Rock
I update my playlist with "you are my sister"

Save the balls!!


Patrik Bundeli, aka 2Much during a period when he was trying to quit smoking he decided to buy a package of ping pong balls and every time he felt the urge to smoke he would start painting one of the balls. After a while he had a very large number of those balls and began filling them with cotton and gluing them together to create these “totems” and Save the balls! kind of born hahaha
I find this very interesting, don't you? maybe everytime a feel the urge to eat something sweet I should do something like this!! T___T

E.E. Cumming Poem

I don't search for poetry intentionally even thought I like it, but sometimes poetry make is way to me, when such things happend I like to write it here on my blog, I think this kind of things are at least to me worth shearing because I find theme beatiful, creative and exeptionally inspiring.

I carry your heart with me by E.E.Cummings

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)


American poet Edward Estlin Cummings (October 14, 1894 – September 3, 1962)

Mail Me Art 2

Mail Me Art is a British-based project, run by Darren Di Lieto, the founder and co-editor of the illustration news portal the Little Chimp Society.
The first Mail Me Art project brought together a vast collection of artistic work sent in the form of mail by both professional and amateur artists of all ages from across the world.

I think that this project it's really interesting and fun.

Up! or high? XD


My sisters and I went to see the Up! Movie by disney pixar, because my little sister got good grades at school and because my grandma was visiting us she went too, my cousin have told us that the 3D version was something out of this world and that the price was totally worth it! I am pretty sure that my cousin was high when he went to see the movie!! O___o? XD don't get me wrong it's a good movie to watch and all the work in it it's really amaizing but the normal version do the job very well and it's less expensive, anyways! it's a very cute movie, the graphics are great and everyone can see it.

Butterflies


Dos nuevas mariposas, al fin terminadas!; esto de las mariposas se me ocurrio por que recuerdo que pasaba por una tienda de mascotas donde tenian mariposas disecadas enmarcadas y se veian muy bonitas y yo queria una, en ese entonces costaban 250$ pesos mexicanos y a mi me remordia la conciencia!!! de que las disecaran para tenerlas de adorno y que para colmo me gustaran O__o! Entonces decidi hacerme mis propias mariposas!! dah! XD


Use acrilicos Grumbacher sobre papel, a veces uso guarro mediano (es papel para acuarela) y otras uso marquilla.

worki


This is how the dolls I'm working on, look at the moment.

Alice Nine


Alice Nine it's a japanese band that a like, they play rock, soft rock, pop, balads and their look it's very trendy, kitch, or that's how looks to me XD the song I choose for the Las Noches playlist it's call "The Beatiful Name" and has really beatiful lyrics, that's way I choose it.

The Beautiful Name
Surpass the silent night, there are things to be shared
So stretch out your hand now, staring at the middle of the cage
The wind gayly plays the melody of spring
I was searching for it at the end of the world
The one and only precious thing.

Surpass the speed of sound, if we can melt come together,
We don't even need time
We keep walking and get lost in time, we pass each other.

So I'll give you a song now,
like spinning the thread that had come untied
The milky way is sparkling, it pierces our hearts
Take a leap, brilliantly
The blue of the sun, the parade of the angels

I want these thoughts to stay unchanged

Playing the piano in the same scenery
I want to meet you here
it comes true, let me wish

Before I forget
In our many encounters
Now, I'll call out your name

Earth of silence
Confused universe
Graced the beautiful name
(And I sing) buzz love song

I was searching for it at the end of the world
The song of praise for the unending tomorrow
As if to make up for the lost fragments
Here and now, I'll call out your name
Even if we're separated, it goes towards you somewhere

Translation credits Akatuski

I post this translation for the pourpose of showing the average feeling of the song and music of Alice Nine I don't own them or anything.
You can here more samples songs at their my space.

Playlist update

I update the playlist with more japanese music because I'm on the mood of that sort of sound XD. Added music by Alice Nine, L'arc en Ciel and my beloved D'espairsRay yey! XD and The Killers.

If you are interested on having a playlist for your own blog or page etc. At Mixpod.com you can get it, need registration but it's free.
