Vou contar um fato bem bobo, mas um dos mais marcantes para mim, engraçado, que quem ler, talvez não consiga entender o que eu vi de tão importante nele.
Meu padrinho viajou para Europa e me trouxe da Inglaterra um lindo bibelozinho de porcelana de crianças no campo em ciranda remetendo ao clássico da Noviça Rebelde, que sempre amei e não me canso de assisti-lo nunca.
Mas não era um simples enfeite de porcelana, não, tratava-se de uma caixinha de músicas, daquela de que tem um suporte que você gira dando corda e ela começa a tocar.
Adivinhem qual era a música? Sim: "My favorite things".
Ele sem querer teve a sensibilidade de trazer algo que dizia muito de mim.
Eu sou assim, colecionadora de emoções, sensações e coisinhas, sejam físicas, presenciais ou virtuais.
Elas são acumuladas para eu não mais esquecê-las, ou dos momentos, que podem ser pequenos, mas têm todo significado.
Gosto de tudo tendo história, lição e significado.
Até meu nome o tem.
Tudo meu é assim, nada é vazio, superfície, eu gosto de mergulhar na alma das pessoas, momentos, sentimentos.
Por isso, acredito que uma simples lembrança doce de um presente do meu padrinho em uma viagem, possa mesmo que não tenha sido a sua intenção ganhado alguma cor e sentido na minha vida.
Onde está a caixinha agora?
Na memória, pois uma das moças que por aqui passaram em casa e trabalharam, quebraram e meu encanto se foi.
Mas como tudo é na verdade efêmero, mas a lembrança, não, fico na memória com a doce lembrança do toque da música ao dormir quando queria ninar em meus sonhos mais lindos e distantes de ainda menina sonhadora que tinha.
Como era sonhadora... Como eu queria ser feliz... Mas eu sou, pois tenho, mesmo no meu lembrar as minhas lembranças pequeninas de todo meu existir.
Cada momento, um sentimento, por isso ando escrevendo (vivendo) a minha história.

"My Favorite Things" is a show tune from the 1959 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical The Sound of Music.
The Sound of Music version
The song was first introduced by Mary Martin in the original Broadway production, and sung byJulie Andrews in the 1965 film adaptation.
In the musical the lyrics to the song are a reference to things Maria loves such as 'raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens'. These are the things she selects to fill her mind with when times are bad.
The original Broadway musical places this song in the Mother Abbess's office, just before she sends Maria to serve Captain von Trapp's family as governess to his seven children. However,Ernest Lehman, the screenwriter for the film adaptation, repositioned this song so that Maria would sing it with the children during the thunderstorm scene in her bedroom, replacing "The Lonely Goatherd", which had originally been sung at this point. Many stage productions also make this change, shifting "The Lonely Goatherd" to another scene.
The wintertime imagery of some of the lyrics has made "My Favorite Things" a popular song during the Christmas season, and it often appears on holiday-themed albums and compilations, although in the show and movie it is sung during a summer thunderstorm.
The first section of the melody has the distinctive property of using only the notes 1, 2, and 5 (Do, Re, and Sol) of the scale. Rodgers then harmonized this same section of the melody differently in different stanzas, using a series of minor triads one time and major triads the next.
The song's main melody seems derivative of Edvard Grieg's In the Hall of the Mountain King, particularly in its repetitive simplicity and its minor-key sense of dread. Put simply, the melody conveys terror. The happy, optimistic lyrics--"Cream-colored ponies and crisp apple strudel"--are just a counterpoint and cover-up to this undercurrent of fear. As noted above, the song was written to be sung by a young woman scared of facing new responsibilities outside the convent. In the film script the song is repositioned, with Maria singing it to the von Trapp children during the thunderstorm; but the terror contained in the melody is still the dominant emotion.
The song ends with a borrowed line of lyric and notes from Rodgers' earlier composition with Lorenz Hart, "Glad to Be Unhappy," a standard about finding peace in the midst of unrequited love. Using the same two notes for the phrasing of "so sad" in the original song, Rodgers brings the gloom of my "Favorite Things" to a similar upbeat ending – "and then I don't feel so bad."
The song was a hit in 1968 by Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass on A&M 1001 (45rpm). The song has become a jazz standard, and has been performed by artists as diverse as:
- Alice Coltrane
- Amanda Palmer
- Andre 3000 of OutKast
- Andy Summers
- Andy Williams
- Anita Baker
- Barbra Streisand
- Béla Fleck
- Big Brovaz
- Bill Evans
- Brian Setzer
- Carmen Lundy
- On 26th November 2007 the track was released by British child singer Connie Talbot (who was discovered on the British television talent show Britain's Got Talent), on her debut album, Over The Rainbow. This album was re-released on the 16th June 2008 (with the Christmas tracks replaced).
- Los Crema Paraiso

Coltrane's album of the same name has been a landmark in the history of jazz for numerous reasons, not least for the rediscovery of soprano sax. One of the best vocal version is performed by Al Jarreau in his first album "1965".
The song was mixed by audio-trickster collective Negativland on their album No Business, which was released in 2005. The Lennon Sisters' version of this song appeared in the film adaptation of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. The song is played during the beginning, juxtaposed with various images from the 1960s. "My Favorite Things" is also said to have been Michael Jackson's favorite song of all time, alongside Charlie Chaplin's "Smile".
The song was parodied on The Chaser's War on Everything as "My Least Favorite Things".
The song was also parodied in the bridge of the Panic! at the Disco song, "Build God, Then We'll Talk". The nature of the song as a list of objects lends itself to easy parodies with alternate objects, as was done by Doonesbury, Garfield, and many others.
The version sung by Tony Bennett was used in the HBO mini-series From the Earth to the Moon, in episode 4, "1968"
It has also been used recently in Cake, a 2007 advertisement for the Skoda Fabia. The same year, it was used in an advertisement for theMasterCard credit card. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, the song was used in commercials for Mitsubishi cars.
A filk version of the song with lyrics revolving around old age, first seen on the Usenet newsgroup alt.idiots in June 2001, has become attached to an urban legend claiming that it was sung by Julie Andrews herself at a benefit concert for AARP.
Lil Wayne and Juelz Santana used the sample tune and different lyrics set to the tune in a song, "Favorite Things", on their Blow: The 'I Can't Feel My Face' Prequel album.
The song was included in the version of the complete musical The Sound of Music as performed at Dingwalls, London by Repetition and the Repetitions in 1980, comprising Nag and Bendle (from The Door and The Window) and Giblet (from the 49 Americans). The album was subsequently released on cassette.
This song is parodied in Billy Crystal's farewell song to comedian Jay Leno on Jay's second-to-last night as host of the Tonight Show. Crystal changes most of the lyrics into various car models.
OBS: Relendo o meu texto, que é mais 1 comentário descompromissado, eu reparei várias redundâncias, repetições, realmente é feio, mas posso pedir licença para não corrigi-lo? Eu tenho estado muito visceral, não quero deixar que se perca a essência e o sentido que virem como nascidos os meus escritos. Se um dia quiser escrever um livro, a formalidade que ele pede seria necessária e as revisões PROFUNDAS, mas aqui vai muito de mim, vai minha inspiração, intuíção, meu jorro de poesia, de vida. Minhas frações destiladas de pensamentos e reflexões. Isso que quero dividir, não a forma, isso qualquer lugar você acha até sem conteúdo nenhum.
