The Lifting


Grounded, 5 A.M.
The nitelite is comforting,
But gravity is holding you.

Once settled into sleep
You have watched, on repeat,
The story of your life
Across the ceiling;
And in review,

You've said the air was singing
It's calling you, you don't believe
These things you've never seen

"Good morning, and how are you?
The weather's fine, the sky is blue -
It's perfect for our seminar..."

"Now close your eyes,
And start to breathe.
Allow the noise to recede...
...Allow yourself to drift and fly away."
But you just stay.

Did you hear these voices calling

Locked into the conference room,
"We're only what our minds assume..."
And rationale is leaving you.

This conceit, these systems of belief,
Your counselor agrees,
"You've always marked these boundaries, now you're free..."
And with relief.

Never, never, never.

Once you had a dream
Of oceans, and sunken cities;
Memories of things you've never known
And you have never known.

"Allow yourself to drift and fly away"

É em dimensoes onde tudo é mais confortavel, onde me é possivel voar e andar sem rumo ao mesmo tempo que procuro algo, que me conquisto. Acontece cada vez que oiço musica, a tua musica.

Que esse sentimento te consuma tambem, durante tanto mais tempo...

Um Grande Beijo

Obrigada por este momento! You allow myself to drift and fly away, sem estar a dormir ou a sonhar. O poder da música...

R.E.M. - IMITATION OF LIFE

Charades pop skill
Water hyacinth
Named by a poet
Imitation of life

Like a koi in a frozen pond
Like a goldfish in a bowl
I don't want to hear you cry

That sugar cane that tasted good
That cinnamon, that's Hollywood
Come on, come on
No one can see you try

You want the greatest thing
The greatest thing since bread came sliced
You've got it all
You've got it sized

Like a Friday fashion show
Teenager cruising in the corner
Trying to look like you don't try

That sugar cane that tasted good
That cinnamon, that's Hollywood
Come on, come on
No one can see you try

No one can see you cry

That sugar cane that tasted good
That freezing rain, that's what you could
Come on, come on
No one can see you cry

This sugar cane, this lemonade
This hurricane, I'm not afraid
Come on, come on
No one can see me cry

This lightning storm, this tidal wave
This avalanche, I'm not afraid
Come on, come on
No one can see me cry

That sugar cane that tasted good
That's who you are, that's what you could
Come on, come on
No one can see you cry

That sugar cane that tasted good
That's who you are, that's what you could
Come on, come on
No one can see you cry

Só para dizer que estás linda no DVD do Dreams in Colour :)))) O David tem razão. O cameraman estava in love pelos teus shoes not red ou seria pelas tuas pernas? Malandro! Just kidding! Adorei o DVD!

Olá Rita, dei uma olhada pelo os artigos postados, não dei muita atençao ainda, confesso, mas gostei e fiquei curioso de ver com mais atenção. Não estando no contexto, desejo-te um grande sucesso na tua carreira e que sejas uma "big star". Assim que tiveres um tempinho espreita o meu mundo, nem que seja só olhar, um olhar atento a minha paixão que é fotografar. Embora, gostasse de um comentario, critico ou não, ao meu trabalho.

Beijos.
