    The Guardian for this meeting was Eliza Madrigal, joined by Sharon, Eden, Wilfrid, Riddle, Bleu, Zen, oO0Oo, and Sunshine. :) I highly suggest reading down to catch the flow which will carry you into music session where you will learn much of el duende! :)) The few comments so far are by Eliza Madrigal....

    Eden Haiku: Good morning sunny Eliza;-)
    Eliza Madrigal: Morning Eden! I didn't see you at first!eden 6-8_001.jpg
    Eden Haiku: smiles
    Eliza Madrigal: You look so lovely!
    Eden Haiku: Thank you, so do you! I love summer dresses ;-)
    Eliza Madrigal: I was a little preocupied, seeing 14 people gathered on the map
    Eliza Madrigal: and wondering what was up :) doesn't seem pab though
    Eden Haiku: Me too ;-) Some Japanese meeting, I flew over there,,,
    Eliza Madrigal: I've only recently begun to pay attention to maps... Ooohhh... Kira Japan!
    Eden Haiku: Maybe Kira Japan?
    Eden Haiku: snap
    Eliza Madrigal: yes, that makes sense. They are a very active group!
    Eliza Madrigal: heheh

    Eliza Madrigal: So talk to me... How is 'integration' going?
    Eden Haiku: Excellent, thanks. You were right about "stertching capacity", I got clear about my decision.
    Eden Haiku: Gee, I always write looong sentences,,,
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh?
    Eliza Madrigal: I love long sentences :)
    Eden Haiku: yes
    Eden Haiku: hehe a novelist habit I guess
    Eden Haiku: yes, so I made up my mind.
    Eden Haiku: To stretch capacity
    Eliza Madrigal: Yay :))
    Eliza Madrigal: It sounds like a restful trip, actually
    Eden Haiku: So I'm going to Tadoussac as scheduled;-)
    Eden Haiku: Restful, not really...Lots of powerful intense visualizations.
    Eden Haiku: But then, you settle into your deeper self.
    Eden Haiku: So that's restful.
    Eliza Madrigal: Ah, well whales seem restful....
    Eliza Madrigal: yes
    Eliza Madrigal: :) Happy for you
    Eden Haiku: Yes, the whales will help I'm sure.

    Eden Haiku: Is it very hot in Miami Eliza?
    Eliza Madrigal: when my daughter couldn't sleep I would put on either ocean tapes or the sounds of whales....
    Eliza Madrigal: Terribly, Eden :( and no rain....
    Eden Haiku: Oh nice. Old creatures these whales, with prehistoric memories....
    Eliza Madrigal: we are due for some but Miami is parched
    Eden Haiku: Riddle-san, nice to see you ;-)
    Riddle Sideways: Hi Eden, Eliza
    Eden Haiku: Montreal is very hot today too. Feels like Miami;-)
    Eden Haiku: But no ocean to dip in...
    Eliza Madrigal: :)) One thing is really nice.... that everything is still blooming and the mangos are amazing

    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Riddle! :)
    Riddle Sideways: ah when the mango are in blossom
    Eden Haiku: Mangos, lucky you. Those are soooo delicious....
    Riddle Sideways: ah when the mangos fall on your head
    Eden Haiku: A fruit from heaven...
    Eliza Madrigal: they're a great pleasure :) the teens that come over have been sent home with some.... they act like they are given gold coins!
    Riddle Sideways: :)
    Eden Haiku: Wonders what Newton would have discovered if a mango fell on his head instead of an apple...
    Eliza Madrigal: he may have been too delighted eating to have thought much about how things work
    Eden Haiku: Oh how nice of you Eliza, to distribute a wealth of mangos to youngsters!
    Riddle Sideways: there is a park in south Miami, or at least there was
    Riddle Sideways: a tropical fruit park
    Riddle Sideways: thank you google
    Eliza Madrigal: :)) Well it is fun... and fun to see how much they appreciate things like that... so basic and available in the right seasons :)
    Eden Haiku: yummm
    Eliza Madrigal: Ah, true Riddle.... hehe
    Eliza Madrigal: I was going to ask when you've visited!
    Riddle Sideways: the Fruit and Spice Park
    Eliza Madrigal: Fruit and Spice park
    Riddle Sideways: in Homestead
    Eliza Madrigal: :) yes
    Riddle Sideways: have you been there
    Eliza Madrigal: I live very close to Homestead actually
    Riddle Sideways: does it still exist?
    Eliza Madrigal: my grandfather had property there, and yes that park is still there
    Riddle Sideways: what a most wonderful park
    Eliza Madrigal: there is a winery, that makes avacado wine...
    Eliza Madrigal: (in homestead)
    Riddle Sideways: just a nice walk through tropical fruit trees
    Riddle Sideways: picking and sampling some
    Eliza Madrigal: mmm, yes...
    Eliza Madrigal: nearly like "Eden" but need more 'cool of the day'


    Eliza Madrigal: my daughter participated in making the world's largest guacamole, at the winery I mentioned
    Eden Haiku: Are you simply ruthed Riddle or did you switch genders? My viewer shows you as a woman in your usual outfit though...With cute freckles...
    Riddle Sideways: http://fruitandspicepark.org/friends/
    Riddle Sideways: or
    Riddle Sideways: http://www.floridaplants.com/fruit&spice/
    Riddle Sideways: [been trying to get gender neutral
    Eden Haiku: You live in paradise Eliza, such abundance!
    Riddle Sideways: *]
    Eliza Madrigal: :) likes freckles
    Riddle Sideways: too much sun = freckles
    Eliza Madrigal: yes I see Riddle the same
    Eliza Madrigal: You know, I really do Eden.... have a rekindled love affair with my 'place'
    Eliza Madrigal: what a treasure :)
    Eden Haiku: Might be time for me to switch viewers but I cannot find my way around in Viewer 2. No searching engine...
    Eden Haiku: had the same problem with Zen Monday, why seeing him Ruthed...
    Riddle Sideways: hmmm, is search box on top bar
    Eliza Madrigal: yes I often have this issue with the men lately
    Eden Haiku: Bear with me please. I will try to come back in Phoenix. Phoenix is easier. Ah you do to?
    Riddle Sideways: :) men are hard to see
    Eden Haiku: Are you in Viewer1 also?
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Eliza Madrigal: I'm in Phoenix

    Eden Haiku: hehe Riddle... Maybe ytour feminine souls are coming out? that,s good ;-)
    Riddle Sideways: femine side is good, but want to get to gender neutral
    Eden Haiku: Oh well, I will just adjust to seeimng the sacred feminine in Riddle then. I like freckles too ;-)
    Riddle Sideways: SL is very hard to do that in
    Eliza Madrigal: that's true...
    Eliza Madrigal: RL too :)
    Eden Haiku: Gender neutral works only when you are a whirling light it seems ;-)

    SophiaSharon Larnia: hi Eliza, Eden, and Riddle
    Eden Haiku: Good morning Sharon ;-)
    Riddle Sideways: yes, probably will go back to swirl
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Sharon :)
    Riddle Sideways: Hi SS
    Eden Haiku: Let me bring my male avatar in Phoenix to see if he gets ruthed. He's called Wilfrid and have been dormant for months now...
    Eliza Madrigal: :)) will be nice to see Wilfrid again
    Eliza Madrigal: he's very energetic
    Riddle Sideways: men can be so dormant
    Eliza Madrigal: I've had dozens of topics on my mind but come here and hm...

    Riddle Sideways: is anybody else trying the 'be nice' for a day thing Pema wrote?

    SophiaSharon Larnia: I know what you mean Eliza :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Eliza Madrigal: well, I've been trying that for a few years now Riddle....
    Eliza Madrigal: in a way
    Riddle Sideways: yep, riddle has too
    Eliza Madrigal: BUT...
    Riddle Sideways: Hi Wilfrid, (not ruthed)
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh, Hi Wilfrid, ltns.... Good to stretch your legs, eh?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hi Wilifred
    SophiaSharon Larnia: heh
    Wilfrid Resident: Hey! Good morning ;-)
    Eliza Madrigal: I was thinking about something... which is that one sort of builds up intention.... that you 'aim' to suspend judgement/be nice... but at some point maybe it 'kicks in'
    Eliza Madrigal: without trying, and that seems authentic, though 'auto-pilot'
    SophiaSharon Larnia: becomes a natural focus, Eliza?
    Eliza Madrigal: wonderful way of saying it Sharon!
    Eden Haiku: what do you mean exactly Eliza?
    Eliza Madrigal: hm... maybe in the same way as 'practice' becomes 'life'...
    Riddle Sideways: when forced/trying become natural/auto-pilot
    Eliza Madrigal: (not to say I'm 'there' but have experienced moments of niceness taking over)
    Eliza Madrigal: hehe
    Riddle Sideways: :)
    Eden Haiku: A feeling of being in the flow maybe Eliza?
    Eliza Madrigal: so a phrase that has come to mind is 'feed the auto-pilot' but that sounds so cold....?

    Riddle Sideways: yes, yesterday was trying sooooo hard, when somebody came in and of course I snapped at them :(

    Eliza Madrigal: mmmm, yes, like one is 'locked in' or carried along in a free way @ Eden
    Eliza Madrigal: Aw (((Riddle))))
    SophiaSharon Larnia: in a way, doing that mindfully for me is is like always being in a play. Feels like a role.
    Wilfrid Resident: Like when are yourself completely yet feeling you synchronize beautifully with others?

    Riddle Sideways: did your world views just go pitch black?
    Eliza Madrigal: mmm, nods @ Wilfried...
    Eden Haiku: It did Riddle :-)
    Riddle Sideways: this is different
    Eden Haiku: Completely dark?
    Riddle Sideways: ah back to daytime now
    Eliza Madrigal: Hmm, things were fine for me
    Riddle Sideways: another total eclipse (were we talking about graphics still?)
    Eden Haiku: Some dementors around maybe Riddle?
    Eden Haiku: As you talked about snapping...
    Eliza Madrigal: alligators...

    Zen Arado: Hi Suni :)
    Eden Haiku: We feel so guilty when it happens don,T we? Yet it happens to all of us...
    Riddle Sideways: here comes the sun
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hi Zen, hi Sun
    Zen Arado: Hi all
    Eliza Madrigal: Hey Zen :) Hey Sun :)
    Riddle Sideways: here comes the zen
    Eden Haiku: hello Sun and Zen...
    Sunshine Vayandar: hi Eden ;))

    Eliza Madrigal: We've been having an interesting conversation, but hard to sum it up
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Riddle Sideways: am thinking Reality is not a very stable concept
    Eden Haiku: Zen lloks ruthed in Viewer 1 and normal in Phoenix.
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :) Riddle
    Eden Haiku: reality is a consensus.
    Sunshine Vayandar: and Liz, Sharon, Riddle Wilfrid ;)
    Eden Haiku: We can stride from it once in a while...
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Riddle Sideways: as consensus goes... some of you are not voting well today
    Eliza Madrigal laughs
    Wilfrid Resident: yes Eden, Zen looks normal to me.
    Riddle Sideways: zen looks ok, Sun is ruthed
    Eliza Madrigal: yes Zen looks normal to me as well, but Sunshine is grey
    Eliza Madrigal: maybe it will rain
    Eden Haiku: Voting?
    Sunshine Vayandar: Zen looks zenly ;)
    Sunshine Vayandar: I try to rebake
    Eden Haiku: "Maybe it will rain..." @Eliza, you sound like an oracle ;-)
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Eden Haiku: The sentence is so poetic...
    Eden Haiku: 'Maybe it will rain...'
    Riddle Sideways: and so it rains
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Bleu :)
    Riddle Sideways: Hi blu
    Sunshine Vayandar: Liz Almighty ;))
    Sunshine Vayandar: Hi Blue ;p)
    Bleu Oleander: hi all :)
    Eden Haiku: Bonjour Bleu ;-)
    Zen Arado: Hi Bleu :)
    Wilfrid Resident: Hi Bleu!
    Eliza Madrigal: Sunshine is indeed raining!
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hi Bleu
    Eliza Madrigal: amazing
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;)

               :)     I tried to go back to the discssion before, to clarify what Sharon had meant re roles, but that moment had moved on. Eden may have given me a gentle pointer a few lines down. Meanwhile, she rezzes a wonderful sounding rainstick ...

    Eliza Madrigal: one thing I was thinking too Eden, that maybe it can also be like 'interrupting' flow
    Eliza Madrigal: it seems that is much of what Pema is pointing to Riddle?
    Riddle Sideways: yep
    Eliza Madrigal: there is a natural set of roles and orders of things... is that what you meant Sharon?
    Riddle Sideways: the flow might (just might) be a duality also
    Eliza Madrigal: Lovely sound Eden :))
    Eliza Madrigal: erase 'natural' from my above sentence
    Eliza Madrigal: :)))
    Eden Haiku: "interrupting flow" in order to go back to your aim you mean?
    Eliza Madrigal: yes noticing when we're in a sort of heedless flow
    Eliza Madrigal: or pre-script
    Eden Haiku: There might be a distinction to make
    Eliza Madrigal: with someone else
    Eliza Madrigal listens
    Eden Haiku: Between going through the motions

    Riddle Sideways: not to go to some aim. just to note that flow is another dualism
    Eliza Madrigal: mmmm
    Eden Haiku: and going with the flow
    Eliza Madrigal: interesting, like tapping into 'in between' flows
    Eliza Madrigal: which can come from interruptions
    Eliza Madrigal: heheh
    Eden Haiku: middle way ;-)

    Riddle Sideways: like noting that there are more then just down stream and up stream

    Eliza Madrigal thinks of juiciness for some reason
    Riddle Sideways: you/we are in many flows
    Eliza Madrigal: ah, yes...
    Eliza Madrigal: :)


    Bleu Oleander: juicy flows ... hmmm
    Zen Arado: (feel uncomfortable with shoes)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Bleu Oleander: haha
    Eliza Madrigal: especially for squishing grapes
    Sunshine Vayandar: welcome the bee ;))
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Sunshine Vayandar: hmm so nice to hear the harp again
    Riddle Sideways: nice harp
    Eden Haiku: Eliza, you sound just like an angel on a cloud ;-)
    Wilfrid Resident: She does!
    Eliza Madrigal: I still remember the first time I saw a harp played, at a church on a corner with huge doors
    Zen Arado: Eliza Harpo :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;)) she is one
    Eliza Madrigal: that's funny Zen.... my first internet hosting job was in an AOL forum called Parent Soup
    Eden Haiku: isn't she?
    Eliza Madrigal: and I used the name PS Harpo and hosted a book club....
    Riddle Sideways: Wilfrid, you seem to agree with everything Eden says
    Eliza Madrigal: but people always thought I worked for Oprah =/
    Sunshine Vayandar: she is hmm yes definitely she is ;))
    Eden Haiku: Parent Soup hehe
    SophiaSharon Larnia: bye everyone, have a great day :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: bye for now
    Eliza Madrigal: Bye Sharon :)
    Eden Haiku: ah... Harpo...
    Bleu Oleander: bye Sharon
    Eden Haiku: Bye Sharon, you too!
    Zen Arado: bye Sharon
    Sunshine Vayandar: byebyeee Sharon ;)
    Wilfrid Resident: Bye Sharon!
    Eliza Madrigal: haven't thought of that memory in a while

    Eliza Madrigal: where do things 'go'?
    Eden Haiku: ah, yes... where do they go?
    Riddle Sideways: they go... but temporarily
    Zen Arado: be glad
    Eliza Madrigal: :) yes what a relief, where would we put it all if it didn't?
    Zen Arado: gone forever..never same river twice
    Zen Arado: why don't we like that?
    Bleu Oleander: I like that
    Eden Haiku: I like when memories pop in suddenly too;-)
    Zen Arado: should be glad when we're dead?
    Eliza Madrigal: me too :) I take issue occasionally, with the 'access' system though
    Bleu Oleander: didn't mean that
    Eliza Madrigal: I'd like to access some things when I'd like to, rather than when they feel like, hahah
    Zen Arado: release from samsara
    Zen Arado: but maybe we should
    Bleu Oleander: I don't really know what that means

                     I had begun to play harp (follow the bee), then Zen followed on a guitar...    

    Eliza Madrigal: Oh, this harp gives the names too, like Blue's guitar!
    Eden Haiku: My printer has memory problems too. Says it has no more ink whatsoever either black or color and it prints perfectly well 18 pages !
    Riddle Sideways: :)
    Sunshine Vayandar: brb little busy in RL
    Bleu Oleander ⊱ smiles ⊰
    Eliza Madrigal: hheh Zen the zeppelin
    Sunshine Vayandar: Live on stage : ZEN
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;)) brb
    Eliza Madrigal: K, sunshine
    Riddle Sideways: should we scream the lyrics now?
    Eliza Madrigal: hahaha
    Eliza Madrigal: yes, Riddle, turn on your mic!
    Eliza Madrigal: eek, trying to turn off harp
    Eliza Madrigal: that's great Zen
    Riddle Sideways: ty zen
    Zen Arado: hmmm can't turn riffs off
    Zen Arado: hoped I could

             9 out of 9 times when I declare something in the following way it ends up not being the case somehow...

    Eliza Madrigal: Today I'm not going to record the whole music session because I need to post the session early, am catching up with some things presently
    Eliza Madrigal: so I'll sign off in a little while but if you guys take pics, I can post them in as usual :)
    Riddle Sideways: ok
    Eden Haiku: Catching up the auto-pilot Eliza?
    Eliza Madrigal: ah, what shall you play now Zen?
    Eliza Madrigal: yes Eden!! :))) feeding the auto-pilot
    Eden Haiku: smiles
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Wilfrid Resident: Nice music Zen :_)
    Eliza Madrigal: nice, yes
    Zen Arado: I have a classical guitar loks just like this
    Eden Haiku: I understand how the word "auto-pilot' doesn't quite cover what you mean by it Eliza... A more precise word will come to you inspired by what we call now the 'auto-pilot"!


    Eliza Madrigal: I guess there are terms for what I mean in energy/chakra work circles Eden... wonder if there is a way to articulate that has none of the kind of 'specialty' connotations....hmmmm
    Eliza Madrigal: ?
    Eden Haiku: Yes, to find a contemporary word for a new reality,
    Eliza Madrigal: because surely artists and writers and basketball players understand....
    Eliza Madrigal: etc
    Eden Haiku: Maybe your college daughter could help you finding that?
    Eliza Madrigal: not sure she'd understand yet :)
    Bleu Oleander: artists have something in common with basketball players? hehe
    Eden Haiku: People under 21 are always the best with moving languages, stretching capacities...
    Eliza Madrigal laughs
    Eliza Madrigal: basketball art

    Zen Arado: aren't we all artists?

    Eliza Madrigal: art of practice :)
    Eliza Madrigal: yes
    Eden Haiku: maybe not in her experinece but if you try to explain to her yours, she might be able to translate.
    Eliza Madrigal: watched a HEAT game last night ... these players move in different times
    Eden Haiku: I used to teach communication to people under 21 and they were amazing atn that
    Eliza Madrigal: yes perhaps it might be interesting to ask her Eden, thanks for that idea :)
    Eliza Madrigal wonders what Zen is preparing to play
    Bleu Oleander: bye all take care :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Bye Bleu :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Nice to see you
    Zen Arado: bye bleu
    Zen Arado: haven't been practicing
    Zen Arado: no time for anything these days
    Eden Haiku: Bye Bleu ;-)

    Eliza Madrigal: :) it seems a strange time of times
    Eliza Madrigal: shiftings
    Eden Haiku: Shiftings yes...
    Eden Haiku: Time flows faster...
    Eliza Madrigal: hmmm
    Eliza Madrigal sways and bounces in her seat
    Eliza Madrigal: ah... you know, the idea of different flows going and interruptions, makes me think of mosaics... like our sessions here many times :))
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi oO0Oo!
    oO0Oo Resident: :))
    Eden Haiku: Mosaics yes ;-)
    oO0Oo Resident: hiya everyone
    Eden Haiku: hello oOOOo!!!
    Eliza Madrigal: we're having a subdued sort of music session so far... but have been talking about different flows... and well, many things
    Sunshine Vayandar: hi again - little crazy here - but seems calmer now
    oO0Oo Resident: :)
    Sunshine Vayandar: hi Sam ;)
    Sunshine Vayandar listens to Zen's music
    Eliza Madrigal: fast fingers Zen
    Sunshine Vayandar: he is gooooood
    oO0Oo Resident: is that Zen playing? 00!
    Zen Arado: Paco Pena taught me :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)))
    Zen Arado: no it isn't!!!
    Zen Arado: I wish
    Eliza Madrigal: Lovely dress Sunshine... very suiting
    Eliza Madrigal: heheh
    oO0Oo Resident: beautiful...AND you can type and play
    Eliza Madrigal: amazing
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;) yes Zen is a prooo

    Eliza Madrigal: yay :D
    Zen Arado: have we got it?
    Sunshine Vayandar: what are you asking Zenji?
    Eden Haiku: yes what are you asking Zen?
    Zen Arado: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duende_%28art%29
    Sunshine Vayandar: thanks looking
    Zen Arado: you haven't heard of that?
    oO0Oo Resident: isn't duende... another way of saying 'play as being'
    oO0Oo Resident: ?
    Eliza Madrigal: it was with us all the time
    Zen Arado: duende as being
    Eliza Madrigal: hehe...
    Eliza Madrigal: Love that :)))

    Sunshine Vayandar: Duende is a difficult-to-define word used in the Spanish arts, including performing arts. From the original meaning (a fairy- or goblin-like creature in Spanish and Latin American mythology), the artistic and especially musical term was derived. "Tener duende" ("having duende") can be loosely translated as having soul, a heightened state of emotion, expression and authenticity, often connected with flamenco. [1]

    Sunshine Vayandar: ;))
    Eliza Madrigal: ooooo

    Zen Arado: El duende is the spirit of evocation. It comes from inside as a physical/emotional response to music. It is what gives you chills, makes you smile or cry as a bodily reaction to an artistic performance that is particularly expressive

    Eliza Madrigal: Authentic Play
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;))
    Sunshine Vayandar: *:• •:*.-:¦:- -:¦:-.•:*¨¨*:• YAYYY *:• •:*¨¨*:•.-:¦:- -:¦:-.¨¨*:•
    Eliza Madrigal: **********Applause!!**********
    Eliza Madrigal: ahhh... natural response
    Eliza Madrigal: inner leaping
    Eliza Madrigal: **********Applause!!**********
    Eden Haiku: Oh how nice Zen "el duende"
    Zen Arado: Solea de Cordoba
    Sunshine Vayandar: love it
    Eden Haiku: Estas de Cordoba hehe?
    Zen Arado: donde esta Cordoba?
    Eliza Madrigal: just noticed Sun has castanets
    Zen Arado: she would
    Zen Arado: show off :)
    Eliza Madrigal: I used to call them 'clackers' when I was litle
    Eliza Madrigal: yes :)
    Eden Haiku: I want some, I want some!!!
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;))
    Eden Haiku: Flamenco is very show off!!!
    Eliza Madrigal: yes very bold
    Zen Arado: yes
    Eden Haiku: It's a dance through which one fills ups her whole bubble!
    Zen Arado: flamboyant flamenco
    Eden Haiku: Saw an amazing blonde flamenco dancer in Montreal once.
    Eden Haiku: So much stomping, such a clear stance of assertiveness!
    Eliza Madrigal grins at image of bubble filling... like a juicy blueberry
    Eden Haiku: It was in a small Spanish joint.
    Eliza Madrigal: yes! its the stomping!
    Zen Arado: yes assertive women too

    oO0Oo Resident: agua! agua! Zen/Paco! ::stomps feet just so:: ;)

    Zen Arado: hmmm
    Eden Haiku: Went to congratulate her at the end.
    Sunshine Vayandar: Eden - castanettes on their way to you ;)
    Eden Haiku: Thought she was from North of Spain or such...
    oO0Oo Resident: duende!
    Eliza Madrigal smiles @ 0

    oO0Oo Resident: generosity.. the virtue that produces peace ::witnesses warm tones of light in the sky::

    oO0Oo Resident: Duende -- the soul force which is said to inspire the art of flamenco. It has also been described as the trance-like fixation or haunting feeling experienced while watching a flamenco performance. Essentially, duende is an inner spirit which is believed to be released as a result of the performer's intense emotional involvement with the music, song and dance.

    oO0Oo Resident: Pellizco -- small spontaneous gestures, mimicries or whimsical movements employed by a dancer to heighten the effect of a dance. Literally, "pellizco" means a "pinch, nip or small bit," and the phrase is used in the flamenco forum to describe actions which are spicy, saucy, juicy, flirtatious or light and humorous. A certain flip of the head or particular glint in the eye, for example.

    oO0Oo Resident: bye Eden gtsy :)

    oO0Oo Resident: Soleá or Soleares -- a song and dance form which is often referred to as the "mother of flamenco" because other important forms (such as alegrias and bulerias) derive from it. The name comes from "soledad," which means "lonliness" or "solitude," and reflects the general mood of the song form. Soleá consists of twelve beats with accents on the third, sixth, eighth, tenth and twelfth.
