I follow some blogs from wordpress. I must admit that I have a look at them from time to time. Today I would love to share a whole post written by a blogger whom I admire. I have learnt a lot of things from her page. Her name is Cassie. She is a fanatic of literature.

See here an extract from her blog:

“Is this how a bouquet of red roses is supposed to behave?”

“I’m a nerd. I color coordinate my mugs on a shelf in the kitchen, I like when the potatoes grow little sprouts that I can then pluck off and imagine myself growing — would we be rooted vegetables if we were in fact vegetables? My kitchen table is a hoarder’s den of inspiration without me even really collecting. You can reliably count on the fact that books will be arranged by size on any given shelf in our house.

I can’t help myself. I enable what little spatial reasoning I have on making things nerdy.

One facet of my nerdery is that when I’m bogged down in a writing slump, and even forcing a page a day feels like ultimate death, I watch or listen to author’s talk about their craft. I find online lectures, podcasts, news hours, interviews, and audiobooks. I generally like hearing what people are passionate about. Sometimes those lectures don’t help me in the moment, but when I’m back looking through my journals, I find a trinket that I just have to dust off. Other times, I’m completely enthralled and ready to market what the author shared. Today was one of those days.” (…)

If 43marks doesn´t work, try del.ici.ous.com

Just in case DropBox might be a risky safe, why not trying Hubic or Mega?

G-Drive archives seem to be fine as well as SlideShare net (LinkedIn)

Soliloquy on the fly of another crazy guy

“Your bits are flying through cyberspace towards me as you read this. I’ll get back to you ASAP. -Automatic reply by wordpress-“

i think that the bits or wings were broken because these have not been received by wordpress. cyberspace must be a hostile place or space where blue birds are tiny and unimportant. i thought i was like a man jumping from a plane –my parachute forgotten up there-. i started to cry and then to shout out loud and nothing happened. i saw other guys flying (did i write that?) well, yes, flying all over the cyberspace and talking, monologuing and “no asap / no pasa nada” no replies. is there somebody in there?

 

Softly with this song, killing me via @YouTube

29 April 2012

(Roberta Flack)

This page is one entry or post in this wordpress blog, but it is also a sample of one entry on @moodle a.k.a AULA VIRTUAL for my students of English language. It is not a compulsory thing but an option to get more and more involved in the English world, that is, culture, music, art or even pictures taken from that crazy and motherly web which turned out to be the internet.

I usually choose videos from @YouTube where subtitles in Spanish language are provided. On this occasion the singer is Roberta Flack and the song is well known in our country by a kind of gypsy flamenco version of Pitingo. It is a good point, I think, to include the lyrics-always written language- of the song.

To finish, a picture of the singer would be fine. And there you are.

 

Killing me softly

Sung by Roberta Flack

 

Struming my pain with his fingers

Singing my life with his words

killing me softy with his song

killing me softly with his song

telling my whole life

with his words

killing me softly with his song

 

I heard he sang a good song

I heard he had a style

and so i came to see

and listen for a while

 

and there he was this younge boy

a stranger to my eyes

Struming my pain with his fingers

Singing my life with his words

killing me softy with his song

killing me softly with his song

telling my whole life

with his words

killing me softly with his song

 

I felt all flushed with fever

Embarrassed by the crowd

I felt he found my letter

and read eachone out loud

I prayed that he would finish

but he just kept right on

Struming my pain with his fingers

Singing my life with his words

killing me softy with his song

killing me softly with his song

telling my whole life

with his words

killing me softly with his song

 

he sang as if he knew me

In all my darkness fair

and then he looked right through me

as if i wasn’t there

and he kept on singing

singing clear and strong

Struming my pain with his fingers

Singing my life with his words

killing me softy with his song

killing me softly with his song

telling my whole life

with his words

killing me softly with his song

 

ohhhhhhhhhhh oohhhhhhh…lalalal..ohhhh lalaaaaaaa

 

Struming my pain with his fingers

Singing my life with his words

killing me softy with his song

killing me softly with his song

telling my whole life

with his words

killing me (softly)

 

he was strumming my pain

yeah he was seing my life

killing me softly with his song

killing em softly with his song

telling my whole life with his words

killing me softly with his song
