ONE ART [Elizabeth Bishop 1911-1979]



The art of losing isn't hard to master

so many things seem filled with the intent

to be lost that their loss is no disaster


Loose something every day.Accept the

fluster of lost door keys , the hour badly spent.

The art of losing isn't hard to master.


Then practice losing farther losing faster:

places ,and names , and where and where it

was you meant to travel.None of these will bring disaster.


I lost my mother's watch.And look !my last ,

or next-to-last , of three loved houses went.
The art of losing isn't hard to master.
I lost two cities , lovely ones .And , vaster ,
some realms i owned , two rivers , a continent .
I miss them , but it wasn't a disaster .
---Even losing you (the joking voice, a gesture i love )
I shan't have lied. It's evident the art of losing's , not
too hard to master , though it may look like (write it !)
like disaster .

Gaza Strip....What's happening Brother ? ?


There are certain moments , in all of our lives , when words cannot actually describe , "what's going on".....
.....and because "THIS IS" a music blog , and not a fuckin' political one , i think i'm gonna have to make an exception today.....
YES , "It's Fuckin'Political , Everything's Political " like Skin used to scream almost 10 years ago....
Skin , Marvin ,Joan and many artists in the past , may had other things in mind , when they were protesting within their songs , but "the song remains the same"....
There's a war going out there.....and i can tell you, it is a tough one....It may have not knocked straight to our door , yet , but i can see it coming....and every one of us is in great danger....although most of us , think that "war" , "death", and "danger" are meanings that we're only blessed to watch on tele....We're not meant to be "Hurt"...Never ....That's what we think....That's the continuing "Illusion" we like to live in , in our "Cheep 'n' Cheerfull", miserables every-day-lives ,
The last three days , many people were killed , and many more are seriously injured , living their own New Year's Eve Nightmare , bleeding to death , screaming for help , begging for medical [and not only..] support....
Jewish "Armed Forces" will not stop striking , and "America is waiting" , untill the victims reach a reasonable number , that justifies some kind of an intervention ....and the story goes on...and on....and on....
It's sad man.....
I mean , you come to a point , when you wake up in the morning , and you ask yourself ..."why do i have to go to work today ????" ....or "what's the meaning of sending postcard wishes , to my friends abroad???"
Wish What ? ? ?
I'd rather sing them ....
"and you may find yourself living in a shotgun shack,
and you may find yourself in another part of the world ,
and you may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile ...."
" .....and you may ask yourself .....Well , how did i get here..." ????
....or the following ....one...
