Bruidsnacht / Bridal Night

Ballad written by my father, performed live by the Flemish folk band “Laïs” 2014. With lyrics and English subtitles.

Bridal Night

Then to the dune she’s gone
Her wedding dress put on
Waves they go to and fro
Stars ready glow

Lonesome in deaden deep
Her tune wakes him from sleep
Waves they go to and fro
Darken the tide

From sea he came to land
He took her by the hand
Waves they go to and fro
Stars ready glow

Darken dune, Darken dune
Bright stars all ready glow
They rest eternally
bound they flow

And there in fragrant green
Became his Bridal Queen
Waves they go to and fro
Darken the tide

He made her company
Back to the flaming sea
Waves they go to and fro
Stars ready glow

Darken dune, Darken dune
right stars all ready glow
They rest eternally
Mm mm.. bound they flow  (x2)

Bruidsnacht

Zij is naar ’t duin gegaan
Haar bruidskleed had zij aan
Baren gaan heen en weer
Sterren staan klaar

Eenzaam in doods gebied
Ontwaakt hij en hoort haar lied
Baren gaan heen en weer
Donker is ’t tij

Hij kwam uit zee naar ’t strand
Hij nam haar bij de hand
Baren gaan heen en weer
Sterren staan klaar

Donker duin, Donker duin
Sterren staan helder klaar
Zij rusten eeuwig… Bij elkaar

Toen in dat geurend kruid
Werd zij ’n gekroonde bruid
Baren gaan heen en weer
Donker is ’t tij

Hij nam haar met zich mee
Terug naar de brandende zee
Baren gaan heen en weer
Sterren staan klaar

Donker duin, Donker duin
Sterren staan helder klaar
Zij rusten eeuwig
Mm mm… Bij elkaar (x2)

ANTILLIA School Project

This Summer of 2012 I finally made a dream come true, a dream I cherished more than 30 years ago (1979) when I started my ‘professional’ life as a secondary school teacher (see “Aboutman“): creating my own school. In August we start with a first “course”/ workshop which also is a holiday on “COINCIDENCE / SYNCHRONICITY / TOEVAL”. We do this at a beautiful & powerful location in Dordogne/Périgord, France from August 3rd to August 10th 2012. Always welcome!
For more info (e.g. on the name of the school), other courses, workshops, holidays etc just go to: ANTILLIA

We hope to welcome you, as a student, as a teacher  or as just YOU in the TIME to come 🙂

Jorma Kaukonen – Genesis

Time has come for us to pause
And think of living as it was
Into the future we must cross, must cross
I’d like to go with you
And I’d like to go with you
You say I’m harder than a wall
A marble shaft about to fall
I love you dearer than them all, them all
So let me stay with you
So let me stay with you
And as we walked into the day
Skies of blue had turned to grey
I might have not been clear to say, to say
I never looked away
I never looked away
And though I’m feeling you inside
My life is rolling with the tide
I’d like to see it be an open ride
Along with you
Going along with you
The time we borrowed from ourselves
Can’t stay within a vaulted well
And living turns into a lender’s will
So let me come with you
And let me come with you
And when we came out into view
And there I found myself with you
When breathing felt like something new, new
Along with you
Going along with you

(Jorma performing around 1990 at D.O.C. Music Club Studio on Italian TV)
