One of my most magnificent Evenings, ever!
Todays evening was one of the most magnificent evenings in my life.
It was so magnificent that I want to share it with you. Sharing and explaining such a thing is not that easy so
be sure you read every word very carefully. Forget what you have to do afterwords or what you did
so far. Just read along. But before I will tell my story open another tab or window of your
browser, point it to the following page and press the play button so that you can hear one of the songs I heard today. This will help you getting a better impression of my story.
Now that you are here again I can start:
I didn't know exactly what to do this evening. I had no plans at all. While eating I head a brilliant idea.
Something I wanted to do for a long time but actually never really did. Thinking back I wonder why. It was so fantastic that I will definitely repeat this.
Anyway, after dinner I started preparing. I put two slices of lime into aluminium foil and folded it carefully. I took
one cigar of my favourite brand (Yoja de Nicaragua) together with a cutter and a lighter. Then I took two
Coronitas, a bottled beer from Mexico better known as Corona in other parts of the world. Last but not least
I picked up a foldable chill out chair (thanks to Andre who bought it a year ago) and wend my way.
Oh, not to forget my iPhone and a pair of active, battery driven speakers.
Equipped with all that stuff I was heading toward the beach.
I chose a nice breakwater. Some made of many big natural stones not such a modern one made of concrete. One like this. When I
found a reasonably planar stone I set up my chair and had a seat. I put on music (the kind you are hearing right now
if you followed my instructions and other songs from the CD Hotel Costes. To be more precise I started with Hotel
Costes CD 9 minute 52:00. Simply awesome. You have to hear it!).
So, after lighting my cigar, opening a bottle of Coronita and putting a slice of lemon in it my most magnificent evening
was ready to start.
Do you know those kitschy sunsets at the beach from pictures and movies? Oh, they are awesome if you see them with
your own eyes.
Take a deep breath and imagine: Sitting in a chill out chair at the beach. Hearing the waves from front and back independently (because you sit right in the middle of two beaches on a breakwater). Smoking one of your favourite cigars and drinking your favourite beer. Then the horizon begins to darken and gleaming red, only intercepted by dark blue bands and areas. In the
middle of this wonderful mixture of colors are some tiny white clouds lighted by some of the days last beams of light. You can
see the silhouette of some beach houses and palms. A little more to the left you can even see a very thin crescent moon.
There is no one on the beach, just you. Smoking, drinking and listening to chill out music.
There are not many moments like this in life. The moments I am really excited about something are not seldom, but do you
know this special feeling if you are really and 100 percent happy about something? Happier then you are usually about something.
Just enjoying the very moment and not willing to spend a second thinking about something else. Trying to enjoy every
second of that moment before it is gone?
Whenever I have such a moment I get a big smile on my face and a goose flesh. Today, this moment held for nearly an hour and I got three times a goose flesh.
Dear, it was awesome! I enjoyed all of the beauty the sky was showing today.
It was almost perfect!
Almost, because it could have been even better if I could have shared this with my beloved one.
A pity you couldn't join me today, sweetheart! I would have appreciate your company very much today.
Anyhow. The picture of todays sky burned into the back of my head and I will probably never ever forget it.
Note: I didn't have my camera with me so todays pictures shows a picture I took in Spain in February this year.
Dude, pretty long posting today. The next postings will contain more pictures and less words, promise :-)
