Gustavo Cerati – August 11th 1959 to September 4th 2014
I’m going to start this post with what got me into Cerati in the first place. This image above. I saw the video (Te llevo para que me lleves) many years ago and I just loved his daft sense of humour and of course his voice. Even in his last videos, he’s still having a joke and being silly. This is how I’m going to remember him.
Well, I should have had something prepared for this post as I think we all knew in our hearts things weren’t going to get much better.
Though part of me never actually even contemplated that I’d be here writing about his passing. It’s weird as to the timing as I changed my profile pic on twitter from the Cerati one (below) to my own face for the first time in 4 years only last week.
Where are You?
PAC (Peace, Acceptance and Courageousness)
A G F L A P
I love the pac man way of looking at this… CAP (Courageousness, Acceptance and Peace) the other way is PAC, as that is where you start from.. (when you are hootless) as you start in peace and we all want to be back there.
You can add it to your profile as just Cerati or do what I’ve done as my FB picture is quite long I’m sharing my pic with Gustavo 😀
Nice idea if you have Facebook, it’s called a twibbon a Get well Cerati pic, a show of solidarity for Cerati
On May 15, 2010, Cerati suffered a stroke due to a decompensation after his performance in Caracas, Venezuela. Three days later, according to the Venezuelan media, Cerati underwent surgery to relieve pressure on his brain due to the ischemic stroke he suffered. …On June 27, 2010 the family’s second statement was released, which affirmed that Cerati is receiving good medical care and asked fans to disregard any malicious rumours related to his health. Get Well soon Gustavo!

I was writing a completely different post earlier and this kinda just popped into being all by itself
So this one is first, as it’s about home comforts and food.
Being the Taurean lady that I am; a comfy sofa is the ultimate in pleasure for me 😀
My other sofa – bless, is looking a little tired and it just wasn’t long enough (it’s an important consideration as I have long legs), even though I have fallen asleep on it a million times and squished too many people on it!
It was time for a change
Ahhh Epiphanies great things they are, when the “baseball bat of Life” finally hits you and the jigsaw pieces actually fit.
I was listening to Get it on by Grinderman this morning – Friday 28th May, just an ordinary day, nothing special as I was getting ready for work and then it suddenly hit me
It’s so bloody obvious and I already had the knowledge – I had used it before and had forgotten about it, how we all get so distracted by the drama of life ( I just needed reminding again, it’s great when you are clear and just know what the next step is)

There is nothing much wrong with my life, I’m happy enough, got food on the table, roof over my head, a steady job and I have exciting projects on the go with my website, this blog, I get on great with my kids, family and overall nothing is really stressing me out… then I slammed my foot into a door and broke my little toe – clumsy girly (I don’t have any gory pics)
But there’s a restlessness, a sadness and a deep loss of connection, to whom/what or how I don’t really know; so I’m going to have to dig a bit deeper, to find out what the hell is going on
I baked these – Vegan Cupcakes
Hmmmm…. I haven’t slept properly for weeks and all this blogging is not helping,
I’m officially a night owl
It doesn’t matter what I do I lie in bed wide awake, I used to sleep so well too, maybe I need some company hmmmm…. or just a few cupcakes?
