Some days you wake and immediately start to worry

"Some days you wake and immediately start to worry. Nothing in particular is wrong, it's just the suspicion that forces are aligining quietly and there will be trouble."

Lalo Borja : Sahara, Fulton Street, 1990

"En esta vida hay amores que uno descubre y va conociendo hasta llegar a incorporarlos al alma propia. Hay otros que uno lleva consigo antes de descubrirlos. Este amor es uno de esos. Algo que se lleva en el alma, antes de que los amores nazcan. Esta es mi hija Sahara, posando de mujer mayor, con aires de preocupación, como un personaje de película italiana de posguerra." Lalo Borja, son blog

Strange Fruit

Southern trees bear a strange fruit,
Blood on the leaves and blood at the root,
Black body swinging in the Southern breeze,
Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees.

Pastoral scene of the gallant South,
The bulging eyes and the twisted mouth,
Scent of magnolia sweet and fresh,
And the sudden smell of burning flesh!

Here is a fruit for the crows to pluck,
For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck,
For the sun to rot, for a tree to drop,
Here is a strange and bitter crop.

Ecoutez Billie Holiday chanter Strange Fruit
