Aug 31, 2007: 3rd International Blog Day

Blog Day 2007

«BlogDay was created with the belief that bloggers should have one day dedicated to getting to know other bloggers from other countries and areas of interest. On that day Bloggers will recommend other blogs to their blog visitors. With the goal in mind, on this day every blogger will post a recommendation of 5 new blogs. This way, all blog readers will find themselves leaping around and discovering new, previously unknown blogs».

So, here goes my recommendations (only blogs not mentioned until now in this blog):
What was I thinking
4 the love of animals
Somewhat Frank
Bola na Trave
Paisajes literarios



My visitor number 800.000

Who would say that this blog would go to reach 800.000 visitors when it started on Sep 3, 2004 ? I would like to thank everybody who helped to make this true: Blogger, Blog's directories, sites that provide blog tools like Sitemeter, Technorati ... , search engines which track this blog, other blogs that have links to mine ... etc... and specially to the visitors. I can't forget the people (some already are friends) who become regular visitors and leave their comments. Thankx a lot!
The challenge now is to keep Nothingandall alive until the next 1.600.000 visitor!


Sonnet - Carlos de Oliveira

I’m accused of being bitter, inclined
to despair, as if my poetry’s pain
weren’t your flesh, O scattered men,
and my sorrow your sorrow, O mind.

Beauty? One day I will sing of it,
when the light I don’t disbelieve in falls
on the dark that hems us in like a wall
and you reach, O joy, your kingdom.

In the meantime let me speak:
let sadness be the revenge I drink
until the wall cracks and the night bursts.

My voice of death is the voice of struggle:
those who, trusting, delve into their suffering,
have a hope whose glory is of higher worth.

Translation from Portuguese by Richard Zenith

Carlos de Oliveira (n. em Belém do Pará, Brazil em 1921; m. em Lisboa a 1 Jul 1981)
