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

I will never be anything.
I cannot want to be anything.
Apart from that, I have in me all the dreams in the world."

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.

LOU REED ♥



Like I said, it's all in the eyes...


 
Lewis Allan "Lou" Reed
 
(March 2, 1942 – October 27, 2013)
 
 
Brian Eno : while the Velvet Underground's debut album only sold 30,000 copies, "everyone who bought one of those 30,000 copies started a band."
 
*******
 
Hi, Lou
 
"And then later when it gets dark we go home"... and it's a new day...
 
Light is where the heart is, you'll do fine anywhere.
 
Don't know if anyone ever told you but the Perfect Day is a Lou Reed's song day. In the dark, where your heart shines poetry.
 
Well, you know I've always loved you, don't you?
 
"2001" was the name: I used to go there so I could listen to you & some of your best friends to the best dancing sound ever. I was 17, the place was new and unsual, and the name 2001, in that different year '74, had a lot to tell me.
 
Yes, when you showed up in the night with your "wild side walk" that was my perfect moment. I just flew away and danced with you, both alone in the dark. God, I wish we were still dancing! It would mean the greatest times ever were still here, right by my side.
 
Those special times through music, when I could keep away from the crowd and just be there with you, in a strange, challenging, exclusive world. No stuff, man, just a couple of drinks, that amazing sound of yours and an outsider pair of wings. And I know you know what I mean - you were there...
 
Thank you, Lou... I miss you like hell... But you always knew I would, right?
 
You go and teach them damn well over there, ok? 
Make them shine!
 
See ya around.
