OBRIGADA, JC!!

(Prince charming Frog, photographed by Sailor Girl.
Tried to kiss him, but he swam away...)
«You wait your whole life to find Someone who understands you and accepts you the way you are. At the end, you find out that Someone, all that time, was You».
«Esperas toda a tua vida para encontrar Alguém que te compreenda e aceite como és. No final, descobres que esse Alguém, todo esse tempo, eras Tu».
Sent by [JC], sempre atento aos meus gritos lancinantes (os que chegam até ao farol de Santa Marta)...
This post goes along with the first music now playing at Radio Atlântico Azul (on the right column of this blog), «Pulled up», by Talking Heads (one of my favourite bands!!). Here goes the lyrics (as a comment to this post)

Pulled Up Lyrics

Artist(Band):Talking Heads

Mommy, Daddy, come and look at me now
I'm a big man in a great big town
Years ago who would believe it's true
Goes to show what a little faith can do

I was complaining, I was down in the dumps
I feel so strong now 'cause you pulled me up!
Pull me up up up up up up up up

I slipped, and I got pulled
Pulled up, I tripped, and then you pulled,
you pulled me up
I slipped, and I got pulled,
Pulled up, I slipped, and then you pulled,
you pulled me up pull me up pull me up...
Pulled me up up up up up up up up

I drift away to another land
Sleeping dreaming such a simple thing
I think of things that I might be
I see my name go down in history

I was complaining, I was down in the dumps
I feel so strong now 'cause you pulled me up!
Pull me up up up up up up up up
I slipped, and I got pulled,
pulled up, I tripped, and then you pulled,
you pulled me up
I tripped, and I got pulled
Pulled up, I slipped, and then you pulled
you pulled me up! Pulled me up up, Pulled me up...
Pulled me up up up up up up up up

I got up
'cause you pulled me up
I stood up
'cause you pulled me up
I got up
And that was because you pulled me up
I got up
In a little while you pulled me up
Pull me up up up up, up up up up!
Pull me up up up up up up up up!

I cast a shadow on the living-room wall
Dark and savage with a profile so sharp
Keep that wonderful food on the table
There's really no hurry I'll eat in a while

I was complaining, I was down in the dumps
I feel so strong now 'cause you pulled me up!
Pull me up up up up up up up up!
I slipped, and I got pulled
Pulled up, I tripped, and then you pulled,
you pulled me up
I slipped, and I got pulled
Pulled Up, I slipped,
And then you pulled, you pulled me up!
Pull me up...Pull me up...Watch out!
Pull me up up up up up up up up!
Pull me up up up up up up up up!
Pull me up up up up up up up up!

É a minha intuição que anda apurada...!Os teus SOS tem sido captados pelo meu VHF por casualidade ou não quando estou de Quarto e como é dever de todo marinheiro socorrer quem precisa... Abraço.

there was never a prince...there was allways frog...the frog just new it, you knew it, and that is why you and him run away...as "uma por dia" says: put the frog in an aquarium!!!!!
I must say JC is a rare specimen, very rare, he says he is content with himself...he is not, I know, and he does not even dream how I do know...he,JC, like the rest of us copes with his life...just copes with his life barelly...copes with his life that is all there is to it...the fact is nonone happy with one's life but we cope...I had a good look at myself some years ago and it almost killed me. And this happens with any of us.
JC is a kind man and thought kind words to confort our Sailor Girl. He is a very good man.
But, Sailor Girl, go and look after your self properlly and search real professional help...there is no substitute to it...there is no Hollywood reality...none...do not look more inside of you and do not seek outside of you. Do confront more and more reality till one of these days it is you trappaed in the aquarium!...I tell you these harsh words because you need professional gidance, and to that I am afraid I need, we need to pass just telling you kind, mythical words of confort.
The point is no other than coping with your lot, with your life as it is and none other.
Make a huge effort and look after yourself, Sailor Girl, search and be very disciplined with whatever the professional you chose tells you to do.
You will be able to cope with your life afterwards, wether you like it imensselly and you say you are happy (and no one can be thus at all times)it or not is almost totally indifferent.
You dispense huge amounts of love and care personnally and also in the virtual world. Many love you.
I certainly do.
And I care enough to tell you, Sailor Girl, for nobody's sake but yours you get professional guidance and do not use your fantastic talent and intelligence to deviate from that objective: coping with your life.
You see you have many friends. I do not want to give you advice or patronize you. JC gave you confort, I give you confrontation. Take a bit of each and with professional advice and some chemistry and even caldo verde...come on Sailor Girl...cope with life! your life
