By the Water


  1. Oh, this is so beautiful!

    She is still a child and might be expecting Puff, the magic Dragon. But the picture also has that romantic touch of a girl by the sea dreaming about love.

    "Puff, the magic dragon
    Lived by the sea..."

    "A dragon lives forever,
    But not little girls and boys.
    Painted wings and giant rings
    Make way for other toys."

  2. That's very good and it looks like they made the rail just for her. actually... somebody taller might go over! She looks like she owns the place. sp

  3. Claudia,
    Puff the Magic Dragon? I thought that song was about getting high!

    Thanks. If things go according to plan, she will own the place. She'll own every place! Mbwahahahaha!!

  4. Oh, Rick, you are impossible!

    Children are not aware that Puff is... you know what I mean. My boy LOVED the magic dragon's song when he was little!

  5. Claudia,
    I'll tell you a secret. When I was a kid I thought that was the saddest song I'd ever heard.

  6. So, let me tell you one more thing: my mother-in-law and my mother were horrified when they first listened to that music! They were visiting us in England and they would shout: "All the songs for children in this country are very depressing!"

    You see, Brazilian music for children is very vibrant and cheerful. Luis' grandmas were appalled to know their grandson was being raised listening to such melancholic tunes and themes.

    At that point I was very practical - Luis liked the songs, so that was it.

    Today he is 19 and loves Jo Satriani...
