101 Things and four wax candles in a darkened room

101 Things and four wax candles in a darkened room.

I have saved this afternoon for you, my beloved reader, and a hundred and four wax candles in a darkened room among velleities and carefully caught regrets through attenuated tones of violins and dark saxophones. Let us take the air, in a tobacco trance, remain self-possessed except when a street piano, mechanical and tired reiterates some worn-out commong song. My self possession flares up for a second. But our beginnings never know our ends, and this is the beginning counted in wax candles in a darkened room, with pianos, violins and saxophones as our favourite soundtrack.
After all these years I've succumbed to peer pressure... and put together my 101 Things About Me list. so here you are - WAY more things then you ever wanted to know about me:

1. My whole name is Laura Juliana Beltrán Villamizar. might know me as: Lo or perhaps La Moixeta.
3.Lo comes from the way english or even french pronunciate my first name... as in Low or in French Lò.
4.Moixeta means bird in Catalan... that's my alter Ego. A mix between bird, butterfly, an angel and Pegasus.
5. I've lived in the Lekkerkerk bay area since 2001.
6.Lekkerkerk's a tiny little town "in the middle of nowhere" somewhere nearby Rotterdam, the south-west of the Netherlands.

9. I have something with the B cities. Boston, Bogotá, Brasilia, Bucharest, Berlin, Barcelona, Belfast, Buenos Aires, Bologna, Brussels, Baltimore, Bangkok, Bali, Beijing, Bergen,Budapest, Beirut...
10. I've been to Copenhagen . I've partied on the Hans Christian Anderson blvd and had black denish beer.
11. I love to read. My favourite authors are, in terms of sheer quantities read and enjoyed and in no particular order:
Roald Dahl, Nooteboom, Nietsche, Poe, G. Garcia Marquez, Madeleine L’Engle,Paul Auster C.S. Lewis, Kurt Vonnegut, Murakami and Saramago.
Plays: Shakespeare, Edward Albee, Oscar Wilde.
Poetry: e.e cummings, Shakespeare, T.S Eliot, John Fuller, Garcia Lorca, Brian Patten and Neruda.
12.I carry a camera with me all the time. I'm exclusively non-digital now, but that's mainly because of the size and convenience.
13. if I could find a light-weight, inexpensive, medium format camera that could take both film and digital, i'd do it. (yes, i know Hasselblad does this, but i did say inexpensive...)
14. Photography is my passion. period.
15. Im listening to Paco de Lucia's Concierto de Aranjuez and I still love it.. this guy is The Man. Period.
