Gustavo Cerati – August 11th 1959 to September 4th 2014
I’m going to start this post with what got me into Cerati in the first place. This image above. I saw the video (Te llevo para que me lleves) many years ago and I just loved his daft sense of humour and of course his voice. Even in his last videos, he’s still having a joke and being silly. This is how I’m going to remember him.
Well, I should have had something prepared for this post as I think we all knew in our hearts things weren’t going to get much better.
Though part of me never actually even contemplated that I’d be here writing about his passing. It’s weird as to the timing as I changed my profile pic on twitter from the Cerati one (below) to my own face for the first time in 4 years only last week.
I’ve neglected posting about Gus over the last few months and that will now be addressed
I’ve been so distracted by many other things
Today is international Women’s Day and I’ve posted this everywhere as it’s just so lovely
“Nunca creí en el machismo. Mi mundo está rodeado de mujeres. Todos vivimos gracias a una mujer. Su luz y su vida nos trajo acá, ¿Por qué debería minimizarlas entonces?…Al contrario, son más especiales que nosotros”. (Gustavo Cerati – Diario La Razón 1988)
Feliz día a esas amigas, hermanas, madres, abuelas! Feliz día mujeres! 🙂
Birmingham German Christmas Market ~ Dec 2010
I went to the Birmingham Christmas Market a few weeks ago, on a random trip to Brum, surprise from some friends 😀 I even got to see the new Harry Potter movie. It was when we had our first snowfalls, oh I thought that was the end of it… (still snowy!) I love German bread, have done since I went to München (Munich) in 1997. So was looking forward to visiting the Christmas market.

I love the pac man way of looking at this… CAP (Courageousness, Acceptance and Peace) the other way is PAC, as that is where you start from.. (when you are hootless) as you start in peace and we all want to be back there.
High above, in the clouds on my way to Edinburgh ~ 26th June 2010
I should really be fast asleep, listening to my meditation cd on my Squeezebox, drifting into la-la land, but I’m here getting inspiration for a new blog post instead… the idea for this post came about by having a good day, it’s been a little while since I’ve felt one of those really well and today was it
It’s starting to come back the feelings of grace and gratitude within me, which is nice.
They are such lovely feelings, well really states of beingness as that’s where you are with grace and gratitude they are like sisters who are just close and you know that they get on like a house on fire. The appreciation of life I have is phenomenal and it helps me deal with all the stuff that crops up in my life. I know on a deep level that everything has an order even the chaos is an illusion and I do my best to hold steadfast and see the grace in all situations.

There is nothing much wrong with my life, I’m happy enough, got food on the table, roof over my head, a steady job and I have exciting projects on the go with my website, this blog, I get on great with my kids, family and overall nothing is really stressing me out… then I slammed my foot into a door and broke my little toe – clumsy girly (I don’t have any gory pics)
But there’s a restlessness, a sadness and a deep loss of connection, to whom/what or how I don’t really know; so I’m going to have to dig a bit deeper, to find out what the hell is going on Continue reading
