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

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.

WE LOVE YOU TOO, TIMOR LOROSA’E!





Atauro Island, Timor Lorosa'e




Ai, Timor

Se outros calam

Cantemos nós!

 
17 years ago, the year was 1999, I remember joining a crowd of portuguese supporters, all dressed in white, who gathered at the Universidade de Lisboa campus to express solidarity and make a stand for the East Timor independence. Jorge Sampaio was then the President, who strongly commited himself to this cause.

With tears of hope in my eyes I sang along with that huge crowd a beautiful song of support, “Ai Timor...” (Oh Timor), and never in my life will I forget that moment.
 

Here's another moment singing for East Timor:

7 years before, a students’ initiative had already brought the portuguese together aboard a ferry-boat, the “Lusitânia Expresso”, which sailed to Timor with the “Mission:Peace in Timor” in mind and the purpose of expressing solidarity with the victims of the Santa Cruz massacre.

The boat was then threatened by military planes at the limits of the indonesian territorial waters and forced to stop and retreat by four indonesian war vessels, two days after, in March 11, and after a 3 month jorney through the seas. But before heading back home, these young people filled the ocean with flowers in memory of all the dead in the massacre. And they did succeed in bringing the East Timor’s independence issue back to the international agenda.

In 1999, following the self-determination act backed up by the UN, the indonesian government quit the control over the territory and East Timor became the first sovereign state of the XXIst century, in May 2002.


And that’s what really matters the most, above all.

 
Portuguese is nowadays one of the two official languages in the country, along with Tétum, and the country has also joined the CPLP (literally, Community of Portuguese Language Countries).

_________


The thing is I have always nurtured a special tenderness for this country and the people. It is then with great emotion that I watch these celebration images, today, after Portugal qualified for the Euro 2016 finals.



Thank you for the love, Timor Lorosa’e, we love you too!
