THE PATH — O CAMINHO

Photo taken in Ericeira about 60 km away from Lisboa (Portugal)
Fotografia tirada na Ericeira acerca de 60 km de Lisboa (Portugal)

Path                                                           Caminho

Path to the sea                                         No caminho pro mar

I found my way                                       É onde me encontro

One thing i can say                                Sinto-me “voar”

There, i am Me.                                       Nunca me sinto sózinho.

Autumn leaves words by João Carvalho

Autumn Leaves
Regrets and joy
Still Green
That can be seen

Leaving Summer
times to come
love and Peace
We cant miss

Fallen leaves
Arriving Storms
Cycling Seasons
and all Reborn

Is a wonder to see
How Nature develops

Joining Hands — Dar as Mãos

Joining Hands

Hands must be joined
To have a new World
All must be enjoyed
Humanity can not be cold

Hands must be joined
With warmth and Love
Selfishness must be banished
Soul can not be sold

Soprando no Vento (Blowing in the Wind)

Blowing in the wind played and arrnged by joão Carvalho

Sopra no vento

Portugal está destruído
Numa onda que desvasta
Mata toda a Liberdade
Que se havia construido

Ricos mais ricos
Pobreza alastra
Proliferam como quistos
Que em tudo nos mata

Portugal já foi Nação
Hoje não é nada
O desemprego alastra
O povo não tem noção

Mas no vento sopra a onda
De onde virá a solução
Defender o que é nosso
Com alma e Coração

Imprisioned Worlds —— Mundo(s) Aprisionado(s)

Imprisioned Worlds

Humankind is lost
Fanatics everywhere
Power, envy and greed
Ignorance is spread!
And subtle lies are spoken.
Against this we must fight
To be alive again.

TWO CAN BE ONE
A CAREFUL SOUL SO TALL
A FUSION TO NONE
IN A MELTING POT WITH ALL
