Anatomy is the most fun I´ve had in years. It´s a lot, it´s overwhelming, and from day one my brain started singing about “dem bones” (the Delta Rhythm Boys are belowed in Sweden and here is a video with a presentation of famous women from Småland, which is what they are singing about – in Swedish!).
Friday evening I collapsed in front of youtube and as happens when one does, one link leads to another, and I was brought back to what? 1987-88-something? sometime in that neighbourhood. Paul Simon was coming to Stockholm with the Graceland tour and we were there; we were there! I was deliriously happy and it felt like history was changing. I fell in love with the Ladysmith Black Mambazo with the white shoes, Hugh Masekela´s trumpet, Miriam Makeba`s voice, and Paul Simon really taking a step back at his own concert, letting these wonderful musicians shine and be glorious. The best of times, the best. (The video is not from Stockholm, but from that same tour, I think.)
I am linking up with Bleubeard & Elisabeth and the T for Tuesday gang today, presenting you with my normal cup of tea that I have with the husband every evening (although that pink cream tart is not everyday fare). The cups are Rörstrand´s Swedish Grace (wish I could afford that whole service, it´s glorious), and the teapot is an old café pot – just right for two cups and a little bit more – I found at a local fleamarket once. Our standard tea is PG Tips, which has a lot of Assam in it and makes a strong brew! Happy T-Day!
