Jacinta - Jazz, Arte & Finança

Ontem, convidado por um grande amigo, passei pelo BES Arte e Finança e fomos ver a Jacinta numa sessão de jazz swing que me levou a revisitar algumas canções da nossa memória colectiva. Aqui fica uma pela qual tenho especial carinho.



P.S: Jacinta estás de parabéns! As condições atmosféricas não te eram favoráveis mas nem isso te impediu de nos brindares com tão boas canções. Obrigado! :)

Perfect Symmetry

Tiger! Tiger! burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

Give

So you heard
I crossed over the line
Do I have regrets?
Well, not yet
There are some,
some who give Blood
I give love
I give

Soon before the sun
before the sun
begins to rise
I know that I
I must give
so that I
I can live

There are some,
some whose give
twists itself to take
they mis-take
who, what made up the line
some say it was pain
or was it shame

Soon before the sun
before the sun
begins to rise
I know that I
I must give
so that I
I can live
Some
Some who give Blood.
I give love
I give

Seasons

In spring, hundreds of flowers;
in autumn, a harvest moon;
In summer, a refreshing breeze;
in winter, snow will accompany you.
If useless things do not hang in your mind,
any season is a good season for you.

When a person acts without knowledge of what he thinks, feels, needs or wants, he does not yet have the option of choosing to act differently.

Smiling is a great way to change your physical, mental and emotional states. Breathing in I smile. Breathing out I smile. All is well in my life.

If you want to be free,
get to know your real self.
It has no form, no appearance,
no root, no basis, no abode,
but is lively and buoyant.

The spiritual aspirant
must swim upstream,
against the current of habit,
familiarity and ease.

I want to be free.
I don't want any ready-made systems.
I am here to find within my being what belongs to me.
Only what is me can make me happy, can fulfill my life.

We have enslaved the rest of the animal creation, and have treated our distant cousins in fur and feathers so badly that beyond doubt, if they were able to formulate a religion, they would depict the Devil in human form.
William Ralph Inge, writer and Anglican Prelate (1860-1954).
