Mi Caminar…

No hay un nuevo lugar por donde andar

que no sea donde me lleve el rumbo o el azar,

a donde he estado años atrás

como polilla…

como forastero en tu jardín

abandonado,

miro a mi alrededor y no veo a nadie,

doy dos pasos y cierro bien los ojos,

a ver si algún hechizo me transforma

en una foto,

donde sonrio sin sentir el frio

de este invierno que ha salido

de esta copa de champán

que ahora termino…

Soy hueso que se fuga del destino que le espera,

soy el cuerpo que le hace el desafio al tiempo,

en fin,

soy el fantasma viejo, pero listo,

que ha venido a bailar

a ver si existo,

y me dejo llevar

por ti,

e insisto

que debo de seguir mi caminar…

God…the Only Reason We Exist…Holy Wisdom…

(Άγια Σοφία, Santa Sofia, Hagia Sophia, photo property of FBC, C.2019 All Rights Reserved)

Built to the glory of God in the year A. D. 360 in Constantinople…it still stands proudly in honour of our Creator…

Haghia Sophia became Ayasofya, a mosque, when the Ottoman Turks invaded and conquered the city in 1453…

But when Mustafa Kemal Ataturk created the modern Republic of Turkey, he closed the mosque, in 1931. In 1935, he reopened Ayasofya as a museum…

Everything was preserved under plaster and a restoration is taking place to bring back the murals and the artwork, especially the sacred icons to Sancta Sophia, the Church of Holy Wisdom. The church was originally known as Ναός τῆς Ἁγίας τοῦ Θεοῦ Σοφίας: or the Church of The Holy Wisdom of God…

Holy wisdom taught the Byzantines to build churches to honour the Holy Spirit, which is God,

And God is the only reason we exist…

Haghia Sophia is located in Istanbul, Turkey. Across from the great church is the “Blue Mosque” the Mosque of Sultan Ahmed, which was constructed from 1609-1617…

My East River, New York…

(The East River, Manhattan, foto property of FBC, C.2019 All Rights Reserved)

For me there is always something magical, mystical, special, enchanting et cetera et cetera about a body of water, especially a large one, even though it is a river. Such a body of water is the East River in New York City.

Running alongside of it is Franklin Delano Roosevelt East River Drive that will take you up to Harlem, passing in front of such places as the United Nations…

From Manhattan to Brooklyn, you can cross this river through the Brooklyn Bridge, an historic icon and a beautiful structure. The Brooklyn Bridge was built in 1883…

The Manhattan Bridge and the Williamsburg Bridge will also get you to Brooklyn or from Brooklyn to Manhattan…

There are also tunnels…

From Manhattan to Queens, you can cross via the 59th Street Bridge, and the Robert F. Kennedy Triborough Bridge as well as tunnels such as the Queens Midtown Tunnel…

There is also a beautiful river walk that starts at the 59th Street Bridge and takes you all the way uptown to Harlem…

I loved my morning walks uptown from Mid-Town Manhattan…you get a feeling of strong energy and peace, it’s like a moving relaxed-concentration state and it is all due to the power of that river…

New York is one of the most wonderful places I have ever lived in…I love the energy, the spirit the excitement of the city. And it is beautiful! It is kept as a jewel. New York reflects the true spirit of America. It is a melting pot where you find people from all parts of the world working together, developing their business, their life, their art and their hope for the future. They are all different in many ways but all agree on one thing, their undying love for New York. If you have ever lived in New York you will always be a New Yorker and if you’ve ever visited you will never forget it!

(Nuestro jardín junto al Océano Atlántico en Miami Beach, foto de FBC, C.2019, Derechos Reservados, All Rights Reserved)

Bodo Vespaciano fue mi nom d’artist de 2003 al 2018 cuando di por terminado ese proyecto. Pero el arte de esos tiempos tiene vigencia y continuidad y no piede ni ha perdido valor…

JaZzArt comenzó en Omnia Caelum Studios of Art Miami y bajo el sello de Bodo Vespaciano…estos son algunos de esos dibujos que ahora forman parte de Omnia Caelum Studios Valencia. Espero que os guste…

Música original que compuse en 2008 en Miami Beach…

Todos los cuadros y dibujos en el vídeo son originales y muchos siguen disponibles en Omnia Caelum Studios Valencia (OCSV)…

i REALLY don't KNOW the Reason…

Featuring “Evil People” the song/video clip that I did quite a while ago with AJA, the Abstract Jazz Arrangement (www.cdbaby.com/cd/aja and http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/aja2)

Hope you enjoy the images and the paintings that I did during the early years…you might recognise a few that I’ve featured in posts on this blog.

The name “Evil People” comes from the name of a restaurant/club that existed in Miami in the 1970’s. The place was made to look like an ancient castle, with little flames of light coming out of tiny windows high up on walls made to look like thick stone battlements…anyways, here’s the song, please tell me what you think…and if you like it, hit that like, share and follow…

Els Carrers…de Nova York…

(La segona avinguda, Manhattan, foto de FBC, Derechos Reservados)

No importen els llums de la ciutat,

si no hi ha llum en els teus ulls…

(els carrers de Manhattan, foto de FBC, Derechos Reservados)

Amb els ulls tapats res llueix com és…

I els llums deixen de brillar…

(els carrers de Manhattan, foto de FBC, Derechos Reservados)

Però la vida no s’atura i segueix el seu pas animat i febril…

I cada nit els carrers es vesteixen de festa i beuen fins a la matinada el nectar de l’energia…

(Parc Central de New York, foto de FBC, Derechos Reservados)

I al matí la vida ens ofereix una altra manera de caminar…

Nova York és un món on hi ha milions d’universos pels carrers i per mes …
