"Girl with a bird she found in the snow..."

"Boy With a Coin" by Iron & Wine has one of my most favorite music videos.

I love Iron & Wine in about a dozen ways. And a video with flamenco dancers to indie alt/folk music? Brilliant and beautiful.

There is something so haunting about flamenco's lovely intensity - or ferocity, even? I think it is a perfect match for the song. (I must say, though, the students have a cooler part than the teacher.)

Oh. OH! My. I still have chills running through me. That is impossibly beautiful and wonderful and fierce. Fierce beauty.

This is spectacular. I once wrote an entire novel about flamenco dancers in Seville at the end of the Civil War (never published). I couldn't get enough of the dance, haunted all these flamenco places in Spain. This is gorgeous. Thanks for posting this.

Oh I agree, I find Flamenco music and dance to be so beautiful.

Iron & Wine is the perfect autumn music. I'm just a little bit in love with Sam Beam.

Beth - Unpublished? Oh, sad...

miamaria - Ah yes, school computer syndrome. I know it well.

Gretchen - Ditto.
