These days

















Nico

I've been out walking
I don't do too much talking
These days, these days.
These days I seem to think a lot
About the things that I forgot to do
And all the times I had the chance to.

I've stopped my rambling,
I don't do too much gambling
These days, these days.
These days I seem to think about
How all the changes came about my ways
And I wonder if I'll see another highway.

I had a lover,
I don't think I'll risk another
These days, these days.
And if I seem to be afraid
To live the life that I have made in song
It's just that I've been losing so long.
La la la la la, la la.

I've stopped my dreaming,
I won't do too much scheming
These days, these days.
These days I sit on corner stones
And count the time in quarter tones to ten.
Please don't confront me with my failures,
I had not forgotten them.

How to Organize a Backpack

Properly organizing your backpack makes your hiking trip much more enjoyable. The general rule of thumb is to pack lighter items at the bottom and heavier items at the top. You may need to adjust the weight distribution once you're on the trail, fine-tuning it for the specific type of terrain you're hiking.


  1. Step 1

    Put your sleeping bag at the bottom of the backpack. Some internal-frame backpacks have a separate compartment for sleeping bags. Use this compartment, since it helps keep your sleeping bag safe from compression.

  2. Step 2

    Pack clothes first. Clothes are the lightest things you'll carry, so they should be at the bottom of the backpack. To help keep clothes dry and separated, put them inside strong zip lock bags. Raingear and a light jacket should be closer to the top or in exterior pockets for easy access.

  3. Step 3

    Organize food and cooking gear on top of the clothes. Store as much as you can inside of the pots and cups to save room. Store the cooking fuel inside a bag in case of leakage, or in a separate pocket.

  4. Step 4

    Place tents inside the sleeping bag compartment or outside the backpack. Since most tents are lightweight, they should be near the bottom of the backpack. Keep the tent inside its waterproof bag.

  5. Step 5

    Take advantage of outside pockets for organization. Use them to store items you need often, so you can get to them quickly. This includes items such as maps, snack foods, sunscreen and rain gear.

A black eyed dog he called at my door
The black eyed dog he called for more
A black eyed dog he knew my name
A black eyed dog he knew my name
A black eyed dog
A black eyed dog.

I'm growing old and I wanna go home
I'm growiing old and I don't wanna know
I'm growing old and I wanna go home.

A black eyed dog he called at my door
A black eyed dog he called for more.

Despues de leer el trecho del libro en que intenta grabar esta cancion, y mal podia tocar y cantar a la vez, me hace pensar...que estaria el pensando, sentiendo, a que punto el dolor mental te lleva, rendicion, dejarte llevar, no querer sufrir.
La gente tiene la mania de ver la tristeza, y el sentirse malo de verdad como punto de debilidad, y no estoy de acuerdo, sera porque todavia no han pasado por malas rachas...pero, bueno, los entiendo, es dificil enfrentarse con algo tan crudo.

Nick Drake leya el libro de Albert Camus, El mito del Sisifo antes de morir.
El libro comienza asi:

"Solo hay un verdadero problema filosófico, el suicidio. Determinar si la vida vale la pena ser vivida equivale a responder a la unica pregunta fundamental de la filosofia".

“Yo decía que el mundo es absurdo y corría demasiado. Todo lo que se puede decir es que este mundo, en sí mismo, no es razonable. Pero lo que resulta absurdo es la confrontación de ese irracional y ese deseo desenfrenado de claridad cuyo llamamiento resuena en lo más profundo del hombre. Une lo uno a lo otro como sólo el odio puede unir a los seres”(Pág. 26) . El sentimiento del absurdo es el que brota de Adán expulsado del paraíso, del orden natural, en sus propias manos frente a un mundo que sigue las leyes que ya no puede imitar, así el hombre en su libertad en el sentido más radical.
