In case you might not have seen it: this song shares its name with a poem by Paul Verlaine (which Debussy also wrote a couple of settings for), and the verse goes quite well with the mood of the song. The translated English version is this:

Your soul is a chosen landscape
On which masks and Bergamasques cast enchantment as they go,
Playing the lute, and dancing, and all but
Sad beneath their fantasy-disguises.

Singing all the while, in the minor mode,
Of all-conquering love and life so kind to them
They do not seem to believe in their good fortune,
And their song mingles with the moonlight,

With the calm moonlight, sad and lovely,
Which makes the birds dream in the trees,
And the plumes of the fountains weep in ecstasy,
The tall, slender plumes of the fountains among the marble sculptures.


Thank you for this translation. Here is the original texte as well. (Verlaine is one of the great musicians of the French language)

Votre âme est un paysage choisi
Que vont charmant masques et bergamasques
Jouant du luth et dansant et quasi
Tristes sous leurs déguisements fantasques.

Tout en chantant sur le mode mineur
L’amour vainqueur et la vie opportune,
Ils n’ont pas l’air de croire à leur bonheur
Et leur chanson se mêle au clair de lune,

Au calme clair de lune triste et beau,
Qui fait rêver les oiseaux dans les arbres
Et sangloter d’extase les jets d’eau,
Les grands jets d’eau sveltes parmi les marbres.

Paul Verlaine, Fêtes galantes


Day 3 -

Now, apart from being ghosted etc, I am now leaning towards mental peace. I woke up and did all the necessary stuffs. Now, i am free. I'd like to thank God, Universe for making see this another spectacular day.

Also, another good news, it's been 4th day, I decided to quit my dirty habits. I am proud of myself.

Lastly, i wish pure eyes reading my note a prosperous Day ahead.

Thank You.


Dia 4:

Voltei aqui pra reler meu dia 3 e pude ter certeza de que tudo aqui é saudade.
O cheiro do final da tarde me lembra todos os dias dos dias que os dias levaram, me fazem lembrar do gosto do bolinho de chuva da Vovó Wanda.
Ela partiu… Exatos 26 dias depois do meu dia 3, tudo aqui virou o que é; tudo aqui é saudade.

Emocionado eu vim me convencer, ou conter, ou talvez, só vim em busca de tentar sentir a energia da gratidão que sinto por tudo que vivi com minha vozinha…

Em 18 dias é natal, o primeiro dos meus 30 anos de vida sem poder dar o abraço que mais me embalou até agora. Confesso que às vezes parece que sei lá, mas não… Eu sei pro que vim e pro que estou aqui, vou honrar e regar cada lembrança, pra que nunca falte, que sempre floresça.

O primeiro natal de todos os outros que estão por vir, por isso eu pintei cada parede aqui de dentro, com as cores que não deixam dúvidas de que… Tudo aqui é saudade, mas com um tom de gratidão 🌹
