REMARKABLE PEOPLE



FERNANDO PESSOA

(Lisboa, 1888 - 1935, Lisboa)


"Não sou nada.
Nunca serei nada.
Não posso querer ser nada.
À parte isso, tenho em mim todos os sonhos do mundo.

"I am nothing.
I will never be anything.
I cannot want to be anything.
Apart from that, I have in me all the dreams in the world."

"I am not nothing.

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.

LADRÕES DE ESTRELAS




Window to the Sky, by James Li - in flickr.


[Porque há pessoas especiais.
 
Há a família. Total e herdada. 
Tempo andado, que vê mais longe, escolhemos por dentro dela apenas a que reconhecemos. E então, sabemos: família é a que entrou no coração. Que cresce depois, ou não, quando a ela se juntam, mais tarde, os que vêm agarrados quando os nossos filhos voam.
A minha, que era já grande, ficou mais alta. E é nela que sou feliz.]

Para a Bi, com um beijo grato. Parabéns, minha querida. Um dia lindo para si, com todos os nossos queridos. ♥



ladrões de estrelas

amor é água de rios
que conhecem o regaço
desde o berço ao fim dos tempos.
tem mãos brancas de criança
e olhos rasgados no longe
que guarda mais entender.

é o coração mais largo,
bate virado a nascente
e abre a janela de mundo
que sabe o canto dos pássaros
pelo caminho dos ventos
a correr por cais de abrigo.

amor é rosto de alguns
que traçam rotas no céu
e vão depois tocar a estrela
que desprendem de mansinho
para acender por alguém
que em terra sonha com a luz.
 
(AV)
 
 
[E por fim, inevitavelmente, a música: esta.
Porque gostamos.
Porque há sorrisos com força tamanha, que pedem contas ao frio dos mundos...]
