Opium Den in Chinatown, Calcutta

A little snooping in Chinatown will turn up the little opium dens stuck down an alley (not recommended without police escort). Actually, the smokers shown in this picture do it legally. Each den is licensed for so many pipes. Each pipe costs a rupee, a phial of opium five rupees. Average smoker consumes aphial a day and there are about 186 pipes licensed in Calcutta.

A memória...


A vida ama a consciência que temos dela diz René Char
(A memória não é o que recordamos, mas sim o que nos recorda) diz Octavio Paz

a memória pode-nos trair, mas a lembrança é nos sempre fiel

merece o que sonhas

Why Music Matters.


a song for love

Tinha fome de letras. Comia o “s” dos plurais, o “d” dos gerúndios, o “r” dos verbos. Insaciável, deu também para comer palavras inteiras, até se tornar incompreensível.
Não satisfeito, passou a devorar frases, orações e períodos completos.
Restaram-lhe grunhidos e interjeições. Em pouco tempo, roeu-os até a mudez total.
Agora só lhe resta devorar o silêncio.

os peixes morrem pelas bocas


Be careful of words,
even the miraculous ones.
For the miraculous we do our best,
sometimes they swarm like insects
and leave not a sting but a kiss.
They can be as good as fingers.
They can be as trusty as the rock
you stick your bottom on.
But they can be both daisies and bruises.
Yet I am in love with words.
They are doves falling out of the ceiling.
They are six holy oranges sitting in my lap.
They are the trees, the legs of summer,
and the sun, its passionate face.
Yet often they fail me.
I have so much I want to say,
so many stories, images, proverbs, etc.
But the words aren't good enough,
the wrong ones kiss me.
Sometimes I fly like an eagle
but with the wings of a wren.
But I try to take care
and be gentle to them.
Words and eggs must be handled with care.
Once broken they are impossible
things to repair.

Anne Sexton (1928 - 1974)
