Give

 

Please, honey, I want to hear your voice. I love you. I want your words.”

She gave him this.  And when he took the microphone, his words found her.

Lyrics to Besame Mucho :

Besame,

besame mucho

como si fuera ésta noche

la última vez

Besame, besame mucho

que tengo miedo a perderte

perderte después

Besame,

besame mucho

como si fuera ésta noche

la última vez

Besame, besame mucho
que tengo miedo a perderte
perderte después

Quiero tenerte muy cerca
mirarme en tus ojos
verte junto a mi
Piensa que tal vez mañana
yo ya estaré lejos,
muy lejos de ti

Besame,
besame mucho
como si fuera ésta noche
la última vez

Besame, besame mucho
que tengo miedo a perderte
perderte después

Besame,
besame mucho
que tengo miedo a perderte
perderte despues

que tengo miedo a perderte
perderte despues…

(gracias a Yolanda por esta letra)

Besame Mucho Lyrics on http://www.lyricsmania.com/ ]

kiss me
kiss me many times
as if this night
was our last time

kiss me
kiss me many times
because I’m so afraid to lose you
to lose you later on

I want you close to me
and to look at myself in your eyes,
to see you next to me.
Think that maybe tomorrow,
I will be far, very far from you

kiss me
kiss me many times
as if this night
was our last time

kiss me
kiss me many times
because I’m so afraid to lose you
to lose you later on

Oh.my. (fanning herself)  He had such sensual tastes in his music.

Quote Day: Sundays

The French have long had conflicted feelings about Sundays. In the early 1950s, the singer Juliette Greco – one of the muses for French existentialists – made her reputation with “I Hate Sundays.” While she derides Sunday as dead time, made for funerals and the hollow rites of the bourgeoisie, Greco also praises Sunday as the day for making love, not things.

That’s very secular. Forget God. Sex is good, and pleasurable, as she knew. Her 1957 affair with Miles Davis, when he was in Paris, being cool, is legendary, and that had not a thing to do with religion. They probably had some fine Sundays, but that’s a French thing:

.

Sundays are for love-making. Plan accordingly.

Quote Day- Patti Smith

“Where does it all lead? What will become of us? These were our young questions, and young answers were revealed. It leads us to each other. We become ourselves.”- Patti Smith. The singer-songwriter turns 68 today. She wrote a beautiful memoir, Just Kids, about her deep friendship with artist Robert Mapplethorpe. The book won the National Book Award in 2010 (Goodreads.com)

Don’t Miss Much

I left the church years ago. I have a solid foundation for my rejection from 8 years of parochial school education including catechism classes, daily mass and a smart-alek boy who referred to our priest as Padre after watching (a banned) Saturday Night Live episode.

I get the references to Christianity when they show up in film, in “news entertainment” commentary, in arguments for and against feminism and traditional choice making. The references are all around us, so embedded into the culture and the routines of life, living and death.

About 10 years ago, the Catholic church I attended at that time played a recorded message from the bishop during the sermon. It was about how to vote in the next election and instructed parishioners to give his and her vote to the candidate who stood behind the church’s unwavering stance on birth control and family planning.

I joined with several other women in turning my back to the altar. Facing the congregation for the duration of the message was not difficult. I stood tall and stared defiantly into the eyes of any who chose to meet mine.

I don’t miss much.

.

But I do miss the music.
