It’s the final day of the year, so let’s take some time to reflect before ringing in the new year. What moments stood out in your flamenco life this year?
Below you can see some of my favorite flamenco memories from 2018 (in chronological order). I feel extremely grateful for the wonderful experiences this year delivered. One of the things I most love is how each event pictured below offered a new opportunity to join with flamenco lovers from across the country (and the world in some cases) to enjoy this incredible art form together.
Here are my top seven flamenco memories of the year
Last night we saw the full moon.
We were at the beach for the Flamenco Retreat at the Oregon Coast.
So today, this letra.
A un río bajé a beber
y estaba la luna clara
a un río bajé a beber
y al agacharme a beber
vi los ojos de tu cara
y al agua yo la besé
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:
El mar es muy traicionero
también muy agradecido
yo que en el mar he nacido
y por eso yo lo quiero
