Just noticed that Cy Twombly has died. His scribbly/calligraphic paintings always fascinated me. He was a crytographer in WWII which explains a little I think. Hope he is somewhere peaceful now, pencil at the ready.
A fresh pot of coffee brewed but longing for a piece of chocolate. Bucketing it down here and I can't help but think of being in my tent at WOMAD. Even in the rain it is just so relaxing.
G Oyrema - Land of Anaka with PG and Eno backing vocals. Gorgeous.

Hello, chocolate, coffee, wonderful music (G. Oyrema) and some nice croissants. . .
Just the right things for this morning! Thanks a lot
I did not know Cy Twombly before, Duddy. His art is interesting, especially if you have his life experiences in mind. The combination of text and images is exciting, particularly his interest in classical mythology as I read in the article.
Here is a wonderful video I recently found. Thanks for Obiero, Duddy
I posted this vid in the Listening-Thread, but it is worth being posted here again
Hello Rise! Some other artistic lunatic

Hello Rise, Ellee and tous les Lunatiques
Beautiful video Ellee, thanks. I wonder what its origins are? I have to put everything aside to listen to his music, can't just have it on in the background. Always evokes journeys made or to be made.
Just reading yet another review of Mr Twombly this time various contribuitions from other artists. Their comments are very touching though unsentimental. One human being can make such an impression upon other people. Who does that make me think of?
On the rocky:
There is a long intro with the duduk (i think that is correct)and Abdelli starts singing 1.28.
