It’s my pleasure

A few weeks ago my friend Germán Guirado told me he had a book of poems published entitled “Escritos de lápiz de labios” and today (Wednesday 6 June) he is reading some of them publicly and asked if I would accompany him on my saxophone – well it certainly is something different so of course I rose to this challenge. We had a rehearsal, well more of a run-through last Sunday and a brief TV appearance on live InterAlmeriaTV last night performing a few poems. So, tonight is the night and I’m looking forward to it.

Germán gave me a copy of his book on Sunday and in my naive understanding of Spanish I have started to read through the poems. Actually I am finding them surprisingly easy to read but dealing with some quite abstract ideas. Here is one of my favourite lines from a poem called Strawman,
“Hay demasiados hombres de letras,
demasiados hombres de letras sin palabra.”

As I arrived to the car-park of the TV station, a man was leaving the building with a bird of prey on his arm which I have yet to identify. Now I’m not really in support of birds of prey being kept in captivity but I don’t know the circumstances, this may have been from a sanctuary or a rescue bird or something so I decline to comment and did not really have time to chat with him. However, I had my phone and therefore a means to take a photograph and here it is.
