Rainy day

Tere hommikust!

Today i woke up with a strange feeling. After a reflexive but positive night, today as soon as i looked outside through the window i could see that today it´s the perfect galician day. About 8 degrees, cloudy and rainy. That grey light that it´s so familiar for me and quite many of you too. Sometimes being in galicia this kind of light made me be kind of depressed. Not so much in the mood to do things and of course to go out, but today i felt it in a really different way. It was the same feeling than when you´re in a strange place or in an awkward situation and suddenly a friendly face appears in the middle of the chaos to save you or at least to make you feel relaxed. Somehow it was like to be at home and that made me quite happy. Quite many of you, who know me so well, probably would never believe the way of life that i´m living here, specially about the time schedule of my days. Waking up at seven in the morning not having any reason to do it, and going to sleep at eleven or twelve as really late just because i want to. It is unbelievable even for me.

Today, with this light, with this weather forecast, with this persistent rain... just a month ago i would go back to the bed and stayed there until lunchtime, but today i just can´t do that. It´s 10 AM, i´m having my third cup of coffee this morning and for the very first time in several days i feel in peace with myself.

Rainy day, dream away.

Once again music can explain things much better than words sometimes, and when both things are together it´s just too good. I´ve never paid attention to the lyrics. As far as i´m a guitar player the music it´s the only thing i can pay attention in a song, but i´m finding quite many similarities between the things i´m living and feeling and some songs, lyrics included, so here we go with one of those cases, my beloved Hendrix nails it this time.


For the lazy ones:

Hey man, take a look out the window 'n' see what's happ'nin'
Hey man, it's rainin'
It's rainin' outside man
Aw, don't worry 'bout that
Everything's gonna be everything
We'll get into somethin' real nice you know
Sit back and groove on a rainy day
Yeah I see what you mean brother, lay back and groove.

Rainy day, dream away
Ah let the sun take a holiday
Flowers bathe an' ah see the children play
Lay back and groove on a rainy day.

Well I can see a bunch of wet creatures, look at them on the run
The carnival traffic noise it sings the tune splashing up 'n'
Even the ducks can groove rain bathin' in the park side pool
And I'm leanin' out my window sill diggin' ev'rything
And ah and you too.

Rainy day, rain all day
Ain't no use in gettin' uptight
Just let it groove it's own way
Let it drain your worries away yeah
Lay back and groove on a rainy day hey
Lay back and dream on a rainy day.

  1. Ánimo y sigue así...aunque ya veo que la adaptación la estás llevando bien, y lo de los horarios genial. Por cierto, a mí me viene estupendamente que escribas en inglés porque tengo los exámenes de la Escuela en menos de un mes...así que go on!
