This Tiny Melancholy

“Who hasn’t felt this melancholy, this tiny thing whose origin is unknown to me.”

Poem by Jorge Barbosa, Momento.

Versão Original em português:

Quem aqui não sentiu
esta nossa
fininha melancolia?

(…)

Esta nossa
fininha melancolia
que vem não sei de onde.
Um pouco talvez
das horas solitárias
passando sobre a ilha
ou da música
do mar defronte
entoando
uma canção rumorosa
musicada com os ecos do mundo.

Poema Momento de Jorge Barbosa.

Friendship

I’m that kind of a friend who will forget your birthday, but I always be there when you need it, so what is more important: birthday or always be there?

A letter to my childhood’s friend Vânia, I meet her when I was 10 years old, twenty years have passed and we are here in this life perpetuating our friendship.

I made for her a pastel velvet pink chocker and a postcard as birthday gift. I hope she enjoys it.
