Teimosia optimista

Hoje, quando acordei, tinha um anjo no quarto. Não tem asas, mas sorri e até sorri com os olhos. Isto parece-me uma boa razão para continuar a acordar todos os dias.
Um abraço felino,
L.

Walk On

And love is not the easy thing
The only baggage you can bring...
And love is not the easy thing....
The only baggage you can bring
Is all that you can't leave behind

And if the darkness is to keep us apart
And if the daylight feels like it's a long way off
And if your glass heart should crack
And for a second you turn back
Oh no, be strong

Walk on, walk on
What you got they can’t steal it
No they can’t even feel it
Walk on, walk on...
Stay safe tonight

You're packing a suitcase for a place none of us has been
A place that has to be believed to be seen
You could have flown away
A singing bird in an open cage
Who will only fly, only fly for freedom

Walk on, walk on
What you've got they can't deny it
Can’t sell it, can’t buy it
Walk on, walk on
Stay safe tonight

And I know it aches
And your heart it breaks
And you can only take so much
Walk on, walk on

Home… hard to know what it is if you’ve never had one
Home… I can’t say where it is but I know I'm going home
That's where the hurt is
I know it aches
How your heart it breaks
And you can only take so much

Walk on, walk on
Leave it behind
You've got to leave it behind
All that you fashion
All that you make
All that you build
All that you break
All that you measure
All that you steal
All this you can leave behind
All that you reason
All that you sense
All that you speak
All you dress up
All that you scheme…


Lyric: Bono Vox
Music by U2

Parabéns Ana

Não imaginava que a tua família crescesse tão cedo, mas é uma notícia maravilhosa e uma pedrada no charco deste ano!
Um abraço de amiga,

Assuntos que nos deixam com uma cabeça!...



Isto é o que nos acontece quando tentamos perceber o que é uma crise internacional, e principalmente como é que se sai dela.

Avisos em atraso

Parabéns a todos os capricornianos valentes que conheço! (conheço alguns e fazem parte da elite dos amigos;-)
Realmente, se pensam como eu, a vida não tem sido fácil nos últimos tempos, mas como lutadores que somos, havemos de superar inércias com a cabeça erguida e com um sorriso nos lábios.
Aos restantes amigos e não capricornianos, um abraço forte e o desejo de um ano melhor.
Para mim, trinta e duas velas souberam a neve, a frio e a montanha.
Um abraço felino
