Once upon a time

There was a time when I heard ska so just my mood would improve...

Smooth your way into my brain... and hopefully I will forget is bloody damn monday!

I need...

... a project.
November in Black & White will be.

"black and white lends itself perfectly to the autumn days because instead of the harsh direct summer sunshine the autumn light is soft and uniform so black and white is perfect for this light..."

The whole world is moving and I'm standing still

I let the day go by
I always say goodbye
I watch the stars from my window sill
The whole world is moving and I'm standing still

There was rain and hot tea...

Beautiful never sleeping London... I loved you since before I touched your grounds with my feet.

Always energetic, people passing by talking a multitude of languages, tea and coffe cups (how I miss them back here), fashion and style, chilly moornings and rainy afternoons.
Convent Garden and the Seven Dials, Westminster and the tall imposing Big Ben. The brown river and the London Brigde. The far away London Eye. The houses and their colourful doors, their red bricks and open curtains.

I missed you at every corner and so many times I though I saw you, walking as if the street was yours.
I had this dream that never came true, maybe life didn't let me or maybe I just sabotage myself over and over again. I was afraid and know I now, I would be fine in the city... I just missed the opportunity.

I had this dream...

August, the month...

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep. 

Robert Frost
I'm sorry... I've made mistakes but I didn't know any other way.

Do you remember the late morning
when we went back to bed,
when we found the first position
and every muscle are resting

sunny days lay ahead...

Today I found a phrase... I found myself acknowledging its inner truth.

"Enjoy the little things in life. One day, you may look back and realize they were the big things"
Robert Brault

My first for the Favorite Photo Friday.
the long road


... wait for me again!

Na mesa de cabeceira #17

"- A minha mulher não planeava nada, não preparava nada.
- Não?
- Não. Com ela, tudo acontecia em estado puro, sem meios-termos. Sabia muito bem o que queria e o que não queria."
Hiromi Kawakami

O estilo de Kawakami capta a delicadeza da vida no exacto momento em que ela parece dissolver-se.

Na mesa de cabeceira #16

"Nesse dia aprendi uma coisa essencial: só conseguimos sentir pena de nós mesmos quando as nossas desgraças ainda são suportáveis... quando se ultrapassa esse limite, a única maneira de suportar o insuportável é rirmo-nos dele."

Marjane Satrapi

no futurizing...

Photo by Paula Vitorino

(...) There's no reason for living with a broken heart

(...) You win - you lose | It's a chance you have to take with love | Oh yeah - I fell in love
And now you say it's over and I'm falling apart

It's a hard life
To be true lovers together | To love and live forever in each others hearts
It's a long hard fight
To learn to care for each other | To trust in one another right from the start
When you're in love

I try and mend the broken pieces | I try to fight back the tears

How it hurts - deep inside | When your love has cut you down to size
Life is tough - on your own

(...) Yes it's a hard life
In a world that's filled with sorrow | There are people searching for love in ev'ry way
It's a long hard fight | But I'll always live for tomorrow
I'll look back on myself and say I did it for love

It's a hard life by Queen

that pink foolishness...

From time to time I have to take pills for stomach ache... fragile one they say, must be careful others say but even so things are not as dark as the pain seems, just to much stomach acid.

But the heart is a whole other story... I wish I had pills for the pain, for the bleeding, for the sadness. I just want for the acids of my heart to go way back, to disappear and never show their existence. I want the heart when happiness was a constant in my life back.

{river of stones} #3.2

On the right side of the road poppies are blooming facing the sun and watching the passer-by with their beauty black eyes and their crimson red against the high green.

{river of stones} #3.1

Today the sun shone down on the river and sparkles of light blinded me while looking out into the horizon.
The boats floating and waiting and cradling me on my way to work...

I dreamt of Paris

... Let's talk of Paris.
I'm in Paris with the slightest thing you do.
I'm in Paris with your eyes, your mouth,
I'm in Paris with...
Am I embarrassing you?
I'm in Paris with you.

they didn't...

"I've been making a list of the things they don't teach you at school.
They don't teach you how to love someboy. They don't teach you how to be famous. They don't teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don't. They don't teach you how to walk away from someone you don't love any longer. They don't teach you how to know what's going on in someone eles's mind.  They don't teach you what to say to someone who's dying. Thay don't teach you anything worth knowing."
Neil Gaiman in The Sandman

... and now I'm kind of lost and scared... and when my eyes close I just want to sleep until spring time.

The window and the view of the fields

It was winter time and the drizzle kept on falling, but we were together and enjoying the weather and the view and the village and each other...
Another photographic weekend should come on our way!

If you're lucky enough...

remember it is rare
and don't throw it away

Childhood Memories

When you used to draw faces on your fingers... when you were easy to talk to...
