I am not sure if there are to many of you out there who do not know who this is. As most of you know this is Canut Reyes. I took these photographs about two weeks ago at a soiree we all had attended.. Needless to say It was an amazing evening. Filled with good food wonderful friends,
some new ones were made that night. And an incredible night of music.
As you all know Canut is part of a remarkable musical family. But for me, Canut is not just a gifted musician, he is a poet, a dreamer, an artist..... Some of those things are often said about Canut. He has the power, through his song to touch the soul... Not to many artists do that. If you sit and really listen to him, he tells his entire life story, with just a song. I have been truly blessed to know he and Catherine as friends. My life here in Arles has been a truly blessed one. It has been filled with remarkable moments. Sharing time with such a gifted soul is truly one of those moments.
I wanted to take this time to thank both Catherine and Canut for being such dear friends to me. It is an honor to have you both in my life. Canut you have inspired me to do great things with my art. You have also inspired me to create with my heart and my soul. Thank you also for giving me the inspiration to follow my heart's song.
And Catherine JUST THANK YOU!!!
10000 besos!!

The man really is an artisic genius in every sense of the word. To be able to express yourself in so many art forms - music, poetry, painting - really is a gift. And the rest of the family doesn't fair too badly either!!

Can't wait to see them at Kew Gardens next month.

Keep the blogs coming Melissa - I've just had a hip relacement and my computer is my connection with the outside world at the moment - I NEED ENTERTAINING!!

Take care

As I have said: C'est Canut. He is truly a unique soul. I am blessed to have he and Catherine as friends.
As for the videos well, I had to get special permission from Canut himself to put these photographs up. When Canut played that night It was for a very small group of people... I am kinda stingy when it comes to sharing stuff tee hee. Hopefully in the future I'll be able to share some of my toys..
Hope y'all understand.
