i persecute (look for) something, in fact, something special.
unfortunately it is so imbricate that sometimes i lose sight of it.
at least i can say meanwhile that i have a sensitiveness that a lot of times works on its own; one could say that it distinguishes itself in a clear notion from the tragic or from the nothing or from the urgency or from the intense sensation, the intense necessity.
i also see this certain something when i hear, for example, what is happening in the songs and in the poetry and in the art of Caetano Veloso; i hear there something, which is very close to the tragic and the generosity, to the pain and the love, to the death and the possibility. i feel close to him and the way he feels: physically, rhythmically, poetically, tragically, happinessly.
that certain wish for happiness, that comprehension of happiness.
all that all together. comprehension of vision.
