Comecei a escrever no momento em que percebi que só pensar não mais me satisfazia.

Precisava transbordar todo aquele pensamento que só ao meu universo de idéias pertencia.

Hoje, escrevo por pura necessidade, por irresistível vício e por agradável teimosia.

Let's take care of ourselves...

Assistam ao vídeo, vale a pena e eu assino embaixo. Fiquei muito emocionada com ele.
O texto é Everybody´s Free(to wear sunscreen) do Baz Luhrmann.

Everybody's Free (to wear sunscreen)

Ladies and Gentlemen of the class of '97...

wear sunscreen.

If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be IT.

The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by scientists whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable than my own meandering experience.

I will dispense this advice now.

Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth. Never mind. You will not understand the power and beauty of your youth until they have faded. But trust me, in 20 years you'll look back at photos of yourself and recall in a way you can't grasp now how much possibility lay before you and how fabulous you really looked.

You are NOT as fat as you imagine.

Don't worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubblegum. The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind; the kind that blindside you at 4pm on some idle Tuesday.

Do one thing every day that scares you.


Don't be reckless with other people's hearts, don't put up with people who are reckless with yours.


Don't waste your time on jealousy; sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind. The race is long, and in the end, it's only with yourself.

Remember compliments you receive, forget the insults; if you succeed in doing this, tell me how.
Keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements.


Don't feel guilty if you don't know what you want to do with your life. The most interesting people I know didn't know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives, some of the most interesting 40 year olds I know still don't.

Get plenty of calcium.

Be kind to your knees, you'll miss them when they're gone.

Maybe you'll marry, maybe you won't, maybe you'll have children, maybe you won't, maybe you'll divorce at 40, maybe you'll dance the funky chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary.

Whatever you do, don't congratulate yourself too much or berate yourself, either. Your choices are half chance, so are everybody else's. Enjoy your body, use it every way you can. Don't be afraid of it, or what other people think of it, it's the greatest instrument you'll ever own.


Even if you have nowhere to do it but in your own living room.

Read the directions, even if you don't follow them.

Do NOT read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly.

Get to know your parents, you never know when they'll be gone for good.

Be nice to your siblings; they are your best link to your past and the people most likely to stick with you in the future.

Understand that friends come and go, but for the precious few you should hold on. Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography in lifestyle because the older you get, the more you need the people you knew when you were young.

Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard; live in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft.


Accept certain inalienable truths, prices will rise, politicians will philander, you too will get old, and when you do you'll fantasize that when you were young prices were reasonable, politicians were noble and children respected their elders.

Respect your elders.

Don't expect anyone else to support you. Maybe you have a trust fund, maybe you'll have a wealthy spouse; but you never know when either one might run out.

Don't mess too much with your hair, or by the time you're 40, it will look 85.

Be careful whose advice you buy, but, be patient with those who supply it. Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it's worth.

But trust me on the sunscreen.

Eu já conhecia. Já exibi, inclusive, esse comercial para meus alunos.
Foi criado pela BBDO americana.

Fugu disse...

Que delícia, Cláudia! Perfeito para uma manhã de sol - como a de hoje. Vou passar meu filtro agora mesmo.
beijo você

Marcio disse...

Fazia tempo que precisava ver uma coisa dessas , meus olhos encheram de lágrimas pois enquento rolava a narração me passou um filme na minha mente das coisas que já me aconteceram , muito obrigado por lembrar de mim . bjos .

Carlos José Teixeira disse...

Olá Cláudia, bom dia.
Realmente o texto é maravilhoso e o vídeo está bem conseguido.
Vale a pena ler o texto e a imagem e som conseguem dar-nos uma maior envolvência.
No entanto, um reparo: o Texto é que é do Baz Luhrmann [realizador de cinema, entre algumas outras coisas] e o vídeo foi realizado pela BBDO e MD9.
Tanto quanto sei, a "Class of..." vai sendo adaptada pelos muitos que vão fazendo outras experiências com o texto [curioso, não?] e já apanhei anos de classe para todos os gostos...

Boa escolha!
Um abraço,

Bom dia, Carlos José..
Obrigada pela visita e pela correção.
Devo confessar que fiz uma pesquisa bem grande(como sempre faço) para só depois postar o vídeo e as informações. Sua intervenção mostra que essa pesquisa deve ser ainda mais rigorosa a partir de agora.
Um abraço.

My kind of Spirit...

You are the elusive Night Spirit.
Your season is Winter, when the stars are bright and frost crystallizes the fallen leaves.
You are introspective, deep-thinking, and mysterious.
Everyone is intrigued and a little intimidated by you because you have an aura of otherworldliness.
You work in extremes, sometime happy, other times sad, but always creative and philosophical.
You are more concerned with the unseen, mystical, and metaphysical than the real world.
Night Spirits have a tendency to get lost in themselves and must be careful not to forget reality, but their imagination is limitless.
