But Hurry! + Have a Blissful Weekend

"But hurry, let's entwine ourselves as one, our mouth broken, our soul bitten by love, so time discovers us safely destroyed..."

Federico Garthia Lorca is considered one of Spanish greatest poets and dramatists.
I like Federico Garthia Lorca and I'd highly recommend his work to anyone interested in poetry, drama,  Spanish Literature, but mostly to anyone interested in people daring to live outside the box.

Well, what are you up to this weekend? I'm going to spend the weekend relaxing and reading Lorca's The House of Bernarda Alba (Spanish: La Casa de Bernarda Alba), a drama about women in villages of Spain.

Hope you have a wonderful Spring weekend! xx

P.S. Photos of the beautiful, delightful, peaceful English countryside. (South Devon, England. November 2010.)

Sharing with Your Sunday Best .

Update: As I'm visiting your blogs today I can't leave a comment; they are all being rejected. Is anyone else having that problem?

Sandra said...

they fixed it, started around 9 am and fixed by 10:30. you can comment now. beautiful landscapes, like paintings.

TexWisGirl said...

such lovely scenes. enjoy some peace and beauty, dear...

Pastor Dennis said...

For me that beautiful quote by Lorca speaks of God's love for the world in Christ, but in the gospel of the resurrection that brokeness has been transcended by a victory beyond hope.

Craver Vii said...

I am not familiar with Lorca's work. But speaking of drama and boldness, I like how those landscape pictures turned out! Can't leave comments today? That's a drag. I hope the issue gets worked our for you.

Crissi said...

Thank you Betty! I wish you a sunny weekend. Here in Bavaria, it's raining!
Hugs Crissi

Linda said...

That first shot looks like it could be in Ireland! Very familiar looking...no problems posting comments, started out at 5:30 this morning, then again at 3pm...maybe I missed all the problems! Seems to be resolved now!

Kelly said...

Beautiful photos!! I remember reading some Lorca many years ago in Spanish Lit class. In that I read it in Spanish, I don't have much memory of it. ;)

Robert Geiss said...

this poem is an excellent mean to measure current time and life.

No problems here, dear Betty! Grrr on Google/Blogger! Such a pain sometimes.

Love your photos and have a wonderful weekend reading or whatever else you decide to do. xoxo

S. Oró said...

Unas fotos muy buenas. Por supuesto no hay otro mejor que Federico García Lorca.Te mando un trozo de ALBA:
En el bosque antiguo, lleno de negrura,
todos me mostraban sus almas cual eran:
el pinar, borracho de aroma y sonido;
los olivos viejos, cargados de ciencia;
los álamos muertos, nidales de hormigas;
el musgo, nevado de blancas violetas.

SALUDOS DESDE ESPAÑA.

MA FERREIRA said...

Ola!

Ulindo final de semana a voce!!

beijo do Brasil....

Lovely photos!

I cannot comment with Chrome on blogs that do not have pop-up pages for comment. I downloaded Firefox and use that for those blogs. It was fixed once, but now still a problem.

Looks like such a peaceful town.

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

The photos are wonderful. I feel like I could just run onto that green grass.

I'm glad my blog accepted your comment. I was having some problems leaving comments yesterday too.

Be well, and enjoy your book.

Hi Betty, Great pictures today... This weekend, I am spending most of it working in the yard. I need to mulch some more flowerbeds --and of course, those weeds love to grow where I don't want them to... ha

Hope you are enjoying your weekend.
Hugs,
Betsy

Pat said...

Beautiful shots! I love those stone buildings.

A Cuban In London said...

Lorca reminds me of my school days in Havana as he was part of the curriculum. I never got him then. It was only later as a young man in uni that I approached his plays and poems again and fell in love with them. Many thanks for that wonderful post.

Greetings from London.

great images. second one is fantastic.i love it

lisa said...

What a beautiful series of images Betty, and such a gorgeous landscape.

I have had some issues leaving comments over the past couple of days. Keep getting "Error 503." When I try a second time, it usually works for me.

I wish you a beautiful week ahead!

Pedro Luis López Pérez said...

Great García Lorca! One of my favorites. He once said: "Poetry is the union of two words that you never meant that they could join together, and forming something of a mystery." He said also: "As I have not worried to be born, do not worry about dying."
Another of my favorites is Quevedo. If you have not read, I recommend it. It's satirical, rhetorical ... phlegmatic. He once said: "Life is a strange emptiness that death occupies."
Beautiful pictures of the English countryside. I love your pictures. I like England and its landscape is very similar to Asturias, where I live.
If you do not mind, from this moment, I become a follower of your wonderful space, full of sensitivity, feelings ... colors.
Thank you! For your comment on my Poetry poesiayvivencias my blog. It is a pleasure and pride to have supporters like you, Betty.
A hug.
