O difícil é manter o espírito…

Já fiz essa dolorosa pergunta por aqui mais de uma vez: “a criança que eu fui teria orgulho do adulto que me tornei”?

Não sei, não sei, sério que não sei…

Adoraria dizer que sim, que sou fruto do que pretendia ser – mas, na verdade, sou resultado de tudo pelo que já passei, não necessariamente que quisesse ter passado. Mas um passado é tanto inevitável quanto necessário.

E vendo esse vídeo do 2CELLOS (“Wake me up”) ficou claro qual o futuro que me aguarda… Mas, tal qual no vídeo, talvez também não necessariamente eu queira ter um futuro tal qual como se me apresenta. Afinal de contas, já não hackeei meu passado? Por um acaso já não dou jump no meu presente? Então, por que não desvirtuar meu futuro? Tudo em prol de tentar deixar aquela criança lá de trás orgulhosa.

Confiram por si mesmos!

É disso que estou falando!!! 😀

Happy Christmas

Simples assim…

 

So this is Christmas
And what have you done
Another year over
And a new one just begun
And so this is Christmas
I hope you’ll have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young

A very Merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear

And, so this is Christmas
For weak and for strong
For rich and the poor ones
The world is so wrong
And so happy Christmas
For black and for white
For yellow and red ones
Let’s stop all the fight

A very Merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear

And so this is Christmas
And what have we done
Another year over
A new one just begun
And, so happy Christmas
We hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young

A very Merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear
War is over, if you want it
War is over, now

Happy Christmas!

Anos Oitenta

Com toda a emoção que veio do segundo encontro dos ex-alunos do Rui Dória, já ficou o indelével desejo no coração de todos esses jurássicos sobreviventes da década de oitenta de se reunir novamente – provavelmente agora para um “bailinho”…

Bem, desde já vai aqui minha contribuição, com uma senhora seleção de músicas da época, quando ainda era na vitrola e nos discos de vinil que escutávamos nossos maiores ídolos. Aos interessados de plantão, no final da relação tem o link para baixar essas músicas – todas em MP3.
