Acesti frumosi nebuni (1)- Syd Barrett

Daca tot am fost intrebata de ce blogul meu se numeste "Toti suntem putin luati" as vrea sa reamintesc doar cativa dintre cei care fiind astfel ne pot ajuta sa ne mai trezim si sa ne privim deschid, avand poate o alta perspectiva. Numai noi putem alege: fie ne trezim si ne uitam atent la noi insine si in jur, incercand macar sa intelegem ceva, sa simtim ceva, fie "sforaim" in continuare multumiti in paturica calduta a pre-judecatilor, a pre-conceptelor, a pre-supunerilor, a placerilor noastre de orice fel, fie intorcand privirea cu condescendenta sau teama "E nebun."
Syd Barrett: Ce a insemnat el pentru Pink Floyd, pentru muzica in general: chitarist genial, aducand tehnici de interpretare inovative, efecte sonore specifice care au dat sunetul ulterior al trupei si deschizand noi "universuri in muzica". De asemenea, cat a influentat creatia multor artisti: Paul McCartney, David Bowie, Jimmy Page si altii.

"Oh where are you now
pussy willow that smiled on this leaf?
When I was alone you promised the stone from your heart
my head kissed the ground
I was half the way down, treading the sand
please, please, lift a hand
I'm only a person whose armbands beat
on his hands, hang tall
won't you miss me?
Wouldn't you miss me at all?

The poppy birds way
swing twigs coffee brands around
brandish her wand with a feathery tongue
my head kissed the ground
I was half the way down, treading the sand
please, please, please lift the hand
I'm only a person with Eskimo chain
I tattooed my brain all the way...
Won't you miss me?
Wouldn't you miss me at all?.

Cat de vii erau ochii lui candva, apoi cat de goi. Ratacirea drumului nu poate fi definitiva atata timp cat nu pierdem din vedere scopul, adevarul. Si cred ca pana la urma a stralucit mai puternic decat un diamant.




Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun,
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Now there's a look in your eyes like black holes in the sky,
Shine on you crazy diamond.
You were caught on the crossfire of childhood and stardom, blown on the steel breeze.
Come on you target for far away laughter, come on you stranger, you legend, you martyr and shine!

Bine te-am gasit pe blogosfera. "Reincantata" de cunostinta.
Cred ca si eu fac parte dintre cei putin luati si aleg o altfel de perspectiva: sa fiu treaza si sa ma uit atent, incercand sa inteleg....dar daca va fi cazul am sa intorc privirea (metaforic vorbind).
Mersi frumos pentru urari.
