A quoi ça ser l'amour?

What is the use of love?...
In a animation movie where the simplicity of the lines is heart touching with Edith Piaf's voice to cradle the rhythm of the couple!



I smiled while watching this...

Creative Exchange ~ Changing

2011 is my brother's last year in College... and this was is 'graduation' ceremony.
Here tradition says that students should wear the black suit with white shirt and a set of little rules must be followed, then there's the cloak which is decorated with fabric embroidery bagdes, many of the are gifts from friends and family, others are bought by the student himself.
My brother is the one on the left, is one of a kind and I love him and I am so very proud of him!

2011, o último ano do meu irmão na faculdade... e lá fomos para a cerimónia da Queima das Fitas e da Queima do Cheque.
A tradição manda que se use o traje, preto e de camisa branca, que fica uma sauna nos dias soalheiros de Primavera, que se sigam as regras dos pins e da colher roubada, da pasta e dos sapatos, e depois vem a capa decorada com emblemas bordados, muitos presentes da família e amigos, outros comprados pelo próprio estudante... e os dedos que ficam magoados e picados de coser tanto emblema... memórias doces que o tempo transforma.
O meu irmão é o da esquera, é único e eu amo-o e estou tão orgulhosa dele!

Stairway to...

I like old well kept buildings... and this one was found while I walked back home, it was waiting to be photographed by someone who took the time to stand still and be amazed with its beauty.

And when they run away?


This family used to live in a cage on the island of tables behind my island of tables... until the day three of the little ones decided to run away and were really hard to find!

When the past is hard to forget...

I heard that you’re settled down.
That you found a girl and you’re married now.
I heard that your dreams came true.
Guess she gave you things I didn’t give to you.
Old friend, why are you so shy?
It ain’t like you to hold back or hide from the lie.




I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited,
But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it.
I hoped you’d see my face & that you’d be reminded,
That for me, it isn’t over.
Nevermind, I’ll find someone like you.
I wish nothing but the best for you too.
Don’t forget me, I beg, I remember you said:
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead”
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead, yeah.

You’d know how the time flies.
Only yesterday was the time of our lives.
We were born and raised in a summery haze.
Bound by the surprise of our glory days.

(...)
Nothing compares, no worries or cares.
Regret’s and mistakes they’re memories made.
Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?
Nevermind, I’ll find someone like you.
I wish nothing but the best for you too.
Don’t forget me, I beg, I remembered you said:
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead”
