La Fiesta Ciento Quince

Today is the birthday of the Spanish poet Federico Garcia Lorca. At the ripe old age of thirty he published his book of poems The Gypsy Ballads and as a result became Spain's most popular living poet. He famously said: To burn with desire and keep quiet about it is the greatest punishment we can bring on ourselves. My personal thanks to Senor Lorca. I just knew there was a good reason for not containing myself.
