you were right. (you knew you would be!) i do like this.
i like it very much.
you twiddled with it very effectively.
i enjoyed the guitar....
and i found myself
getting up from my chair and
pouring myself a large glass of
red wine to enjoy with it.
have you ever been to spain?
i am not surprised to hear that you have some
spanish blood in you!
i found that i liked it in spain very much
(although i spent most of my time avoiding
loud drunk british and german holiday makers)
and did my best to meet the locals.
perhaps it was the warm scented night air,
or perhaps it was the delicious aromas in the
simple tapas bars and all the delicious wine, but
i found that in
good company, i could get totally
swept away with the
rhythm and discovered
many neruda moments. which is why i especially like your mention of' wind and honey and sleep'.
and i understand perfectly my own interpretation of' perfumed with the soul of laughter'. and it hits its mark (whether you intended me to interpret it that way of not!)
i think its rather neat that the name of
your first guitar manages to work its way into this.
[it must be as special as memories of
other 'firsts'! ]
So: let me tell you Jase,
that this Tom Dick and Harry,
thoroughly appreciated not only your
clever arrangement of words
but also the effort you went to in order to display it
with a cherubim in sepia.
