Can one mistake

besttrack.jpg

take us OUT OF THE TRACK like FOREVER?

 I mean, is there kind of a one and only best track for everyone and once you get out of it you may find other good tracks but it will NEVER EVER be the BEST TRACK again?

I HOPE the answer is NO.  I HOPE you can always find a better track to fit the new circumstances.

Cooking for One

Cooking for one is not a very much rewarding experience. It’s more a need and an obligation.

I keep many recipes and watch culinary programs, specially the ones where the anchor cooks for friends at home. I’d love to do it. I watch because it’s out of my reality.

I’d love to cook for friends at home, trying recipes and seasons [if I had a bigger place, of course, and a real kitchen 🙂].

The only experiences I had until now [and I’m old enough] were at home while living with family. For desserts only.

It’s never too late. I’ll enjoy it whenever it comes.

Do It or Die

Atlanta Rhythm Section – Do It Or Die lyrics
Don’t let your troubles make you cry
Don’t waste a moment wonderin why
When everything goes wrong
You have to go on
And do it or die
Do it or die now
Stand your ground

Don’t let your bad breaks go gettin you down
Even when times get rough
And you’ve had enough
You still gotta try
Do it no matter what the people say
They don’t even know you

Die before you let them stand in your way

You should know that life is a gamble all along
Winners are losers who keep rollin on
So go on and roll the dice
You only live twice
So do it or die

Read my mind

The Killers

“Read My Mind”

On the corner of main street
Just tryin’ to keep it in line
You say you wanna move on and
You say I’m falling behind

Can you read my mind?
Can you read my mind?

I never really gave up on
Breakin’ out of this two-star town
I got the green light
I got a little fight
I’m gonna turn this thing around
Can you read my mind?
Can you read my mind?


The good old days, the honest man;
The restless heart, the Promised Land
A subtle kiss that no one sees;
A broken wrist and a big trapeze

Oh well I don’t mind, if you don’t mind
‘Cause I don’t shine if you don’t shine
Before you go, can you read my mind?

It’s funny how you just break down
Waitin’ on some sign
I pull up to the front of your driveway
With magic soakin’ my spine

Can you read my mind?
Can you read my mind?

The teenage queen, the loaded gun;
The drop dead dream, the Chosen One
A southern drawl, a world unseen;
A city wall and a trampoline

Oh well I don’t mind, if you don’t mind
‘Cause I don’t shine if you don’t shine
Before you jump
Tell me what you find when you read my mind

Slippin’ in my faith until I fall
You never returned that call
Woman, open the door, don’t let it sting
I wanna breathe that fire again

She said I don’t mind, if you don’t mind
‘Cause I don’t shine if you don’t shine

Put your back on me
Put your back on me
Put your back on me

The stars are blazing like rebel diamonds cut out of the sun
When you read my mind

Complex People Who Complicate Things

I’ve always been told that men “attack” when they are interested. And if they don’t, it means they are not very into the woman.
And I’ve always believed it.
Now I’m not so sure anymore.
I think the most rich and complex is the person’s interior the most difficult it gets to express deep strong feelings.
Do men attack only the wrong women easily or for superficial interests and when it’s about the right one they run like chickens?
Maybe not all of them, but some of them, for sure!
Only you guys can answer me that, as I’m a woman.
It brings me some comfort to think that some men act like that.

Saint Therese of Lisieux

I was born catholic but there’s been some years since I stopped going to the church for several reasons.

I don’t believe in institutions and religions anymore.

Each one has its own relation with religion, it’s so personal that I don’t wanna explain what I think and feel about it. I can only say I don’t believe our lives are limited to this world.

Anyway, I believe in sanctity, there are some people that reach that status and see what most of people don’t.

My mother once gave me a rosary of Saint Therese of Lisieux and I have a sister who likes her very much and knows her story. I believe in her sanctity, not limited to the catholic meaning.

I’ve been through some problems my whole life and on Tuesday I decided to start a novena, after thinking of it and feeling sad.

I didn’t have the paper with the official prayer and just “talked” to the saint what was on my heart. That I believed she found out early what most of us don’t see in a whole life and that I believed she can help. I asked for her help and, in this novena, you ask to receive a rose as a sign that she can help you[it may be of paper, plastic, real, it doesn’t matter], and I asked.

The next day, my co-worker gave me some little roses, that she got in a wedding she’d been. At the time I didn’t connect things. When I arrived home I remembered. It was really special to me.

Those problems I’ve mentioned are very complicated and I’ve tried to solve them many times in my life, not successfully. They didn’t get any better yet. But I’m feeling really better after that. She gave me peace and faith and I’m grateful.

I need a fix

“Fix Me Now”

Things don’t have to be this way
Catch me on a better day

Bury me above the clouds
All the way from here
Take away the things I need
Take away my fear

Hide me in a hollow sound
Happy evermore
Everything I had to give
Gave out long before

Fix me now I wish you would (Fix me now)
Bring me back to life (Fix me now)
Kiss me blind somebody should (Fix me now)
From hollow into light

Crashing silent broken down
Falling into night
Who gave up an who gave in
I’ll go without a fight

Cut me down or cut me dead
Cut me in or out
Kiss me blind time after time
Take away my doubt

Fix me now I wish you would {Fix me now I wish you would} (Fix me now)
Bring me back to life (Fix me now)
Kiss me blind somebody should {Kiss me blind somebody should} (Fix me now)
From hollow into light

Things don’t have to be this way
Catch me on a better day

Nowhere only down from here
Pick me off the floor
Take away the things I dream
One time one place one more

Fix me now I wish you would {Fix me now somebody should} (Fix me now)
Bring me back to life (Fix me now)
Kiss me blind somebody should {Fix me now somebody should} (Fix me now)
From hollow into

Fix me now I wish you would {Fix me now somebody should} (Fix me now)
Bring me back to life (Fix me now)
Kiss me blind somebody should {Fix me now somebody should} (Fix me now)
From hollow into light

Things don’t have to be this way
Catch me on a better day
Things don’t have to be this way
Catch me on a better day.
