Armando Taborda's photos

I'm beggining to know myself. I don't exist.
I'm the gap between what I'd like to be and what others have made me,
Or half of this gap, since there's also life...
That's me. Period.
Turn off the light, shut the door, and quit that slipper noise in the hallway.
Leave me alone in my room with the vast peace of myself.
It's a shoddy universe.

///

Começo a conhecer-me. Não existo.
Sou o intervalo entre o que desejo ser e os outros me fizeram,
Ou metade desse intervalo, porque também há vida...
Sou isso, enfim...
Apague a luz, feche a porta e deixe de ter barulhos de chinelos no corredor.
Fique eu no quarto só com o grande sossego de mim mesmo.
É um universo barato.


by Álvaro de Campos (Fernando PESSOA)
