September has arrived

Plaza Cronista

And the park still looks lovely in the morning.

A rest from massive social media

The laptop and the notebook

For a long time, the social network I was active in was Twitter, probably for 2 reasons:

  • I worked in there, in a 3rd party service.
  • I decided to stay due to its versatility and being developer friendly.

However the company-developers relationship is not in the best terms from a while ago. Their rules are completely arbitrary, their client application is (and has always been) a mess, and they are promoting toxic behaviours. Therefore, I’m not saying I’m quitting, as due to work reasons I need to be in one of the massive social networks, but it will mostly run on autopilot, just as Google+. You will find my wordpress-feeds there for sure, but don’t expect much interaction from me.

If you actually want to contact me on a social network, you can find me active in Mastodon at @Angeles@mastodon.cloud (a Fediverse alternative which has proper settings and a much nicer administration).

Sunset in Valdelagrana, Cádiz

“Should’ve stayed, were there signs, I ignored?
Can I help you, not to hurt, anymore?
We saw brilliance, when the world, was asleep
There are things that we can have, but can’t keep

 

If they say
Who cares if one more light goes out?
In a sky of a million stars
It flickers, flickers
Who cares when someone’s time runs out?
If a moment is all we are
We’re quicker, quicker
Who cares if one more light goes out?
Well I do”

Tsunami

“Call me when the smoke from the bridges burning
Gets in your eyes and you need someone
To take the blame
Once more, like you’ve done before

So when you need a scapegoat
Just place the blame on me
I never asked to be anyone’s hero
I never asked to carry the torch

I’m here for you to crucify
Waiting for your lies to stain me once more
So let me take that cross from you
I’ll bear it like I always do

Out of the night and into the light
Where I swear my allegiance
I’ll stand by your side and
I will ease your sorrow and grief

Your burden I bear, your pain I will share
To you I will surrender
But in the end I know I’ll have the last laugh

I’ll smile at the dawn of solace
And laugh on the reckoning day

Once more the fools will return to parade you
And love you until they’ll hate you
For what you’ve become
And you’ll call me

But I am overburdened
And I can take no more
I am more tired than ever before
And all that I want is to settle the score

Deep in the night I’ll hide from the light
Where I swore my allegiance
Won’t stand by your side
And I won’t ease your sorrow or pain

No burden to bear, I’ve suffered my share
Now darkness feels so tender
And in the end I know I’ll have the last laugh”

“Melodic stanzas
are symphonizing their way
through your weary head

To feed your distrust
And fill it’s mouth with the desire
to soulfully be one with your creation”
