Originally  tapas were the slices of bread or meat which sherry drinkers in Andalusian taverns used to cover their glasses between sips. This was a practical measure meant to prevent fruit flies from hovering over the sweet sherry. The meat used to cover the sherry was normally ham or chorizo, which are both very salty and activate thirst. Because of this, bartenders and restaurant owners began creating a variety of snacks to serve with sherry, thus increasing their alcohol sales.[1] The tapas eventually became as important as the sherry.

about: going into the astral and travelling through space and time, visiting other parts of the world, and other worlds.
Lying out among the stars while galaxy after galaxy streaks past and vanishes into the distance…

….a whole series of universes swings by

“A shawdow came over the sun and for a time I imagined that I saw a face in the clowds.”

about: non-ordinary reality

During the next five years Don Juan´s arcane knowledge led him into a world of beauty and terror, ruled by concepts far beyond those of western civilization.

Three times he met Mescalito, the God of the peyote…



Fast fünf Minuten harter Kampf…und schliesslich schafft sie ihn doch noch.

(4:08)…Hysterisches Gebrüll hebt an. “Push, push, push!”

She remembers me of a woman in the neighbourhood who worked in similar way in her garden. She was strong-built and wore a blue swimming costume. She was about 50, heavy but in good condition and as a boy I wondered if I could have challenged her in a wrestling match.


Bikini gardening is amazing…! Sweating and working.
