Tomorrow doesn't exist

Amanhã não existe. Meu somente
É o momento, eu só quem existe
Neste instante, que pode o derradeiro
Ser de quem finjo ser.

Tomorrow doesn't exist. This moment
Alone is mine, and I am only who
Exists in this instant, which might be the last
Of the self I pretend to be.

(Fernando Pessoa)


  1. which might be the last
    Self of whom pretend to be.

    somos sempre a manifestação ulterior do que amanhã pode desaparecer

  2. Self of whom I pretend to be

  3. and the beauty, and the sadness of this inevitable disappearance make the whole world of photography so irresistible to me... I know you know it.

  4. pessoa's words are like scalpels tonight...

  5. i could have sworn that this would 'hit' a soft spot, dear Manu... i am sorry for the aggressive vocabulary, but such emotions are inevitably like this, no?
