Já começa a ser hábito a febre de sábado à tarde; desta vez faço o caminho de velhos amores e sexo frugal: uma paragem antecessora no carreço, vejo a força do mar arrebatador e revoltoso e de novo camarido – mas agora paro na fortaleza: entro e desço pelas leiras, as ruas estreitas até à pensão galo d’ouro, ao lado os pitas, no centro o fontanário (ontem foi com o leite de arroz dos cremes)... outra vez no alto, avisto todo o estuário que se desdobra depois da ponte e entra na arga. Também eu viro pelo vilarelho, venade e começo a subir o rio dos mouros que liga os festivais: primeiro o desbaste da direcção mecânica pela topografia da rota e dos cerros antrópicos; pouco a pouco os pequenos muros_barreira sobem com a paisagem que se mostra na naturalidade tão característica, nativa das covas e águas longas que caem por oblíquos açudes, entre bosques nús e pastagens de socalco quadriculadas. Toda a 301 quase sem luz até ao topo da coura que se mantém sobranceira - poderia ter cá vindo pelos narcisos mas foi apenas pelo revivalismo de verões que não cheguei a ter. Um café com broa após conversa sobre o aumento dos combustíveis em reabastecimento e agora um chá verde com jasmim enquanto vejo as cinzas do tempo e ouço o "fechamento". Pelo caminho notei a reposição da ópera de John Adams 24 anos depois, em tempos de revolução e diplomacia.


Act II Ending - Madam Mao desires to save the peasants at all costs leading her to become more brutal than the landlord was in the first place. Eventually, a riot develops on stage with Chou and Madam Mao on opposite sides - the opera has become a rerun of the Cultural Revolution. - Quote from Lyrics: (Chiang Ch'ing)"I am the wife of Mao Tse-Tung who raised the weak above the strong. When I appear[,] the people hang upon my words". On MET


«War, this monster of mutual slaughter among men, will be finally eliminated by the progress of human society, and in the not too distant future too. But there is only one way to eliminate it and that is to oppose war with war, to oppose counterrevolutionary war with revolutionary war, to oppose national counter-revolutionary war with national revolutionary war, and to oppose counter-revolutionary class war with revolutionary class war.... When human society advances to the point where classes and states are eliminated, there will be no more wars, counter-revolutionary or revolutionary, unjust or just; that will be the era of perpetual peace for mankind. Our study of the laws of revolutionary war springs from the desire to eliminate all wars; herein lies the distinction between us Communists and all the exploiting classes.»
"Problems of Strategy in China's Revolutionary War" (December 1936), Selected Works,  Vol. I, pp. 182-83. Mao Tse-tung


«History shows many examples of political leaders playing on nationalist feelings and attempting to demonize holders of contrary opinions. They soon become foreign agents. This has sometimes happened in the name of democracy and freedom, but almost always with a tragic outcome.
We recognise this in the rhetoric of the struggle against terrorism: "You are either for me or against me." Such undemocratic methods as torture and imprisonment without sentence have been used in the name of freedom. This has led to more polarisation of the world and harmed the fight against terrorism.
Liu Xiaobo is an optimist, despite his many years in prison. In his closing appeal to the court on the 23rd of December 2009, he said: "I, filled with optimism, look forward to the advent of a future free China. For there is no force that can put an end to the human quest for freedom, and China will in the end become a nation ruled by law, where human rights reign supreme."»

olha, muito nortenho, mas gostei particularmente de saber - que não sabia - que os narcisos só existem em estado selvagem por essas bandas...
