tantas Saudades...

  1969

I was but a newborn babe back then -
the luminous toddler with no teeth!
*lol*
No teeth - but a sense of humor already!

A little later on now...
1972
with my first Big Doggie...

I grew up fast, didn't I...! *lol*
Tinha mais peso que juizo! 

Mas ainda assim...
Dieu Merci, je ne parlais pas encore Français
(pas encore contaminé par le joual québécois!)
I was even further away, though,
from mastering Shakespeare's language...
What progress made since...!
Progress rhymes with regress though -
ever noticed that?
Same concept as when one notices that 

"winning" rhymes with "losing"... 
It must be that way in order to 
convey us a message, surely...? 
For we lose so much
 - the innocence, the youthful enthusiasm, 
the freedom, the carefree joy - 
as we supposedly ''gain'' 
with added years 
poise, experience, grit... 
Do we really gain anything at all, 
em verdade...? 
The epitomy of all this is to see 
BAD rhyming with SAD; 
how ironic when, as kids, we all want to be 
''bad'' to the bone... 
We all want to be a bad a$$... 
to be perceived as bad as we can possibly be!
Hailed as tough enough, at all costs, 
only to find ourselves unhappy about it 
and dissatisfied ultimately 
- but such a fate is so well-deserved...!  
Progress-regress...
Winning is losing...
To be bad is to be sad...
Aye, all these plays on words 
convey something all right...
For then, there might be hidden wisdom
somewhere in there, hmm? 

Não é verdade...?
Unless our favored language
was poorly constructed, that's all!
If so, then, even at my most nostalgic 

and philosophical,
I can be whimsical and reference
a fellow great comical intellect 

and tremendous influence since 
well, way back then -
Weird Al Yankovic, who once summed it up
so very eloquently indeed 

even if he was using his native language:
"nothing really matters"
:-!

Aye - way to go, W.A.Y.
I guess!

Betcha his baby pictures
aren't as good as mine though! 

I shall keep the bulk of them 
ssssecret - a while longer!
;-)

Name:

Born in the Age of Aquarius, destined to seek out truths in many an art form, trained as a historian and a journalist but truly a prose-lover... Luciano is out to dispel any clichés and reinvent them all both to the tune of a little something called the truth as also to his own image - being old-fashioned, he does not mind that distinction one infinitesimal tiny bit at all...! "There are two ways to spread the light; be the candle... or the mirror that reflects It." I have chosen to be the latter... okay? ~*~ "To be not only a seeker of light... but a dream weaver of light" ~*~ For as surely as the moon reflects the light from the sun, you and I can reflect the Light from Above - and be, indeed, the light of this world! ~*~*~*~
