“This is my five string serenade
Beneath the water I play
And while I’m playing for you
It could be raining there too.”
Today I went to my favorite place in town. 😌
As a warm-up, I sketched the random people outside the window.
It was a mood for quiet, bittersweet music. After so many years, I remember and wanted to listen to “Looks Like December” by Antonio Carlos Jobim.
‘I still sing te quiero, bolero, our rhymes are so banal.
Oh how I still long for tus besos never more.
Tus besos nunca mas.’
I must’ve listened to it 10 times. To finish drawing Tom Jobim himself.
I played “Flowers in December” next by Mazzy Star because I didn’t want to get tired of the other song. It’s too precious for that.
Immediately I’m captivated by Hope Sandoval. Her eyes are so beautiful, her voice so fitting for the song.
Oh, I just realize they both have ‘December’ in the title! 😲
Pumunta ako sa paborito kong lugar at nag-siesta. Na-inspire ako ng mga kanta ni Antonio Carlos Jobim at ni Hope Sandoval, pati na rin nung mga naglalakad na tao sa labas ng bintana.
今日は私がダウンタウンで一番好きなところに行ってゆっくり一日を過ごせました。音楽家のアントニオ•カルロス•ジョビン と ホープ•サンドヴァルの曲や、外での通行中の人にインスパイアされました。
