AJED 2012 #4 - Castillos en el aire

Hoy ha sido uno de esos días en el curro en que me he desconectado de todo, he eliminado la frecuencia en hertzios de la voz de mi jefe, del teléfono y de mis compañeros y me he puesto a "construir castillos en el aire", como la canción del genial Alberto Cortez. 

Os dejo la letra por si alguna no la conoce (pero vamos, deberíais llevarla grabada a fuego en el corazón) y os dejo también la página que me ha inspirado en mi art journal.


An awesome song by the brilliant Alberto Cortez, that inspired my last art journal page.


I translated the lyrics literally. Please read.  I hope you understand the beautiful meaning.






He wanted to fly like the seagulls.
Free in the aire, by the air free
and the others said: "poor fool"
he doesn't know that flying is impossible


But he spread his wings to the sky
and gradually, he was gaining altitude,
and the others were on the ground
keeping their sanity


And he built castles in the air
in full sunshine, with clouds made of cotton
in a place where no one
could reach using the reason


And he built fabulous windows
full of light, magic and color
and called "the gobling of things" 
that have much to do with love.


Seeing him so happy,
caused widespread alarm in the others, 
rules were established, just in case this is contagious,
try to be happy that way


The concusion is clear and forceful
he was sentenced for his crazy ideas
back to live with people,
and "dress with sanity"


For building castles in the air
in full sunshine with clouds made of cotton
in a place where no one
could reach using the reason


And for opening fabulous windows
full of light, magic and color
and calling the "globling of things"
that have much to do with love.


Finish here the story of the fool
that in the air, like the air, free
wanted to fly like seagulls...
but that is impossible... or not??




Y tú, ¿construyes castillos en el aire?
