A JOURNEY BACK TO ENDEARMENT

A JOURNEY BACK TO ENDEARMENT



FLYING A SECRET



I got here to hide. From equations and patterns. From repetition, after all.
Closed the door and got me a special place where I thought I could
somehow sit close to the stars. But I soon found out that the sky was
still opaque, no matter what the steps. And so I left. Again.

I thought, then, I could build me a different ceiling, a new-coloured scrap
of highness. And then make it work. Where I could dream, more than I sleep.
I have long decided that sleeping is overrated - that I know for sure. So I
take that time instead to travel the night alone and in the meantime I allow
myself to fly, unlike stated before... Yes, I like playing with paradox, to
expose the inside of words and the revelation of writing down the voice of a
silence. My adventurous, ever-walking silence.

So I came back. Here, within this quiet world, I intend to gather all my
things usually kept hidden or inactive. They are here to speak.

And since the future is a stand-by secret, I want to live by a precocious
clock, at every running instant of every entering second.

And I will not slow down until my "future exists now" - kind of reverse
quoting Jacob Bronowski.

MEMORIAL: "O CAPITÃO SEM MEDO" - "THE FEARLESS CAPTAIN"



























Aqui nada se esquece. E se, por vezes, parecer que sim, é pura ilusão induzida... 


SALGUEIRO MAIA, “O CAPITÃO SEM MEDO”

O verdadeiro líder da revolução, enquanto estratega operacional, pessoa de grande reserva que se manteve sempre em segundo plano, faleceu há 21 anos, aos 47 anos de idade. São dele as palavras que se seguem, na madrugada de 25 de Abril de ‘74:

“Ao princípio da madrugada, na parada da Escola Prática de Cavalaria, afirmou perante 240 homens: “Meus senhores, como todos sabem, há diversas modalidades de estado: os Estados sociais, os corporativos e o estado a que chegámos. Ora, nesta noite solene, vamos acabar com o estado a que chegámos! De maneira que, quem quiser vir comigo, vamos para Lisboa e acabamos com isto. Quem for voluntário, sai e forma. Quem não quiser sair, fica aqui!”

(in Expresso, 4-Abril-2012)

...

“Há vinte anos (há 24, hoje), quando era primeiro-ministro, Cavaco Silva recusou-se a conceder àquele militar uma pensão “por serviços excepcionais e relevantes”. A atitude do então chefe do Governo provocou um sonoro coro de protestos, tanto mais que foi conhecida aquando da concessão de uma idêntica pensão a dois inspectores da extinta PIDE/DGS.”

(in Expresso, 9-Junho-2009)

TO THE WORLD - TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
 
 
Nothing here is ever forgotten. And if sometimes it'll look otherwise, well, it is mere induced illusion...
 

SALGUEIRO MAIA, “THE FEARLESS CAPTAIN”

The effective strategic operational leader of the revolution, a very private person who always kept himself into the background, passed away 21 years ago, at age 47. These are his words, early dawn April 25th, ‘74:

“Early that dawn, at the Practical School of Cavalry's parade, he said before 240 men: “Gentlemen, as you all know, there are several types of State: the social State, the corporate State and the state we’ve come to. Well, in this solemn night, we are finishing the state we’ve come to! Therefore, those who’re willing to come with me, we’re heading to Lisboa to finish the matter. All volunteering will leave and form a line outside. Those who aren’t willing to leave, stay here!”

(quote from Expresso, April 4, 2012)

...
“Twenty years ago (24, now*), Cavaco Silva, prime minister then [and President nowadays**], refused to grant this military a pension “for outstanding and relevant services” [when the Captain was already seriously ill***]. This decision coming from the one who was then the head of Government triggered a loud choir of protest, especially since it came out at the exact same time a similar pension was granted to two agents of the extinguished PIDE/DGS” (the former status quo State police).
