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.
Sometimes those damn curve balls drive you crazy, you feel there are no answers to anything, hopelessness, fear, so I asked the question ( I’m all about asking the question as it works. It’s been bothering me a lot, about what to do…. Here is the answer
This photo was taken in a taxi on the way to work this morning, not being a morning person I watched the bus zoom past me… ooops… oh well. I’ve gone past that a million times and never seen it – funny how things pop up when you need them the most. Love… Jeez I wasn’t expecting that; as being in judgement well it was so much safer – blame, anxiety, worry, hey isn’t that much more fun!
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.
Interconnectedness with everything and being at peace and balanced within
This for me (both the Spring and Autumn Equinoxes (23rd Sept this year)) has always been a pivotal time of the year as the Sun enters Libra. The day and night are the same and in balance, before the seasons change again from Summer to Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere and from Winter to Spring in the Southern Hemisphere.
This Summer/Autumn has been a challenging yet exciting and sometimes sad time for me, there have been many unforseen changes and adjustments, over the last few months. Transiting Pluto in Capricorn squaring Saturn in Libra and now the Sun is joining them (for a little while.) There has been a lot of soul searching , tough decisions and lots of airy activity going on. While the Sun was still in Virgo, lots of planning, attention to detail and sheer hard work had to be done…and it was!

For me, his birthday is rather special…. as a kid I’ve always loved birthdays.
I’m much more of a birthday person than Christmas
We all are born and I feel it’s a lovely thing to do to celebrate it, it’s only once a year. I enjoy the whole thing, some people like little intimate celebrations some like lots of people, some like a special gift. Continue reading
