I played hooky today and took myself to the beach on a whim. 15,000 steps of beach walk therapy felt so good.

That's why you see a picture of the Oregon Coast up there, of Cannon Beach. (Perhaps we should have a Flamenco Retreat at Cannon Beach some day. Hmm. . .)

And so, a letra about the sea:

Alegrías

El mar es muy traicionero
también muy agradecido
yo que en el mar he nacido
y por eso yo lo quiero

The sea is very treacherous
also very grateful
I was born at sea
and that’s why I love it

I can't find a recording of this online, but you can hear it on Ayer y Hoy by Chaquetón.

Periscope

Follow me on Periscope @FlamencoOregon (Laura Onizuka). I'll be there soon chatting about what it's like to study flamenco in Spain and answering your questions.
