Vamos Renovar a Espécie Humana...

Esquecendo a propaganda final, este anúncio apela aos diamantes lapidados dentro de cada um de nós, o coração e a alma.
Eu começo já hoje a renovar este membro da espécie humana.
(Forgetting the final propaganda, this announcement appeals to the diamonds cut inside each one of us, heart and the soul.
Right in this moment, I begin to renew this member of the human sort.)

It is said that we want to build a better future, but it isn't true. The future is nothing but an indifferent void which doesn't interest anybody, while the past is full of life, its face irritates us, revolts us, hurts us, so much so that we wish to destroy or repaint it.

"There are moments in life that make you, that set the course of who you are gone be.
Sometimes they are little, subtle moments. Sometimes... they are not.
Bottom line is, even if you see them coming you are not ready for the big moments.
No one asks for their live to change, not really. But it does.
So what are we? Helpless? Puppets? No. The big moments are gonna come, you can not help that.
It is what you do afterwards that count.
That's when you find out who you are..."

Na Basílica da Estrela...

... assisti ao concerto de encerramento do XI Festival Internacional de Órgão de Lisboa.
Sonata para Órgão, em Ré Maior (seja lá a nota que for) e Missa Grande de Marcos Portugal (1762-1830).

Quarta à noite com programa muito diferente.
A repetir no XII Festival!
