Yemanjás e o colar.
Então ele encontrou uma fada, em meio a mata fechada, descobriu cachoeiras, rios e corredeiras, poços, lagos e manguês, descobriu neste instante, riquezas nunca já antes, ouviu os bichos dizendo que era possível sonhar.
Cansado, ele voltando prá casa, viu um céu estrelado, ele voltava voando, queria ver a cidade, de lá olhar a felicidade, voando vestido de arara, planando lá nas alturas, olhando as luzes do altar.
Em casa, o seu lugar, seu refúgio, ele vestiu-se de cores e colocou-se à pintar.
(The boy and the forest)
The forest left the boy afraid yet fascinated,a little enchanted and when he looked by his side he saw the sea.On the sea he felt like a giant,having sailed on it before,knowing the greatness,the mystery,the deception,the beauty,the richness,the certainties and currents.He had seen mermaids and fish,the Goddess of the sea (Yemanja) and a neckless.Then he came across a fairy in the thick forest,discovered waterfalls,rivers and rapids,pools and mangroves,riches he had never seen before.He heard the animals saying that it was possible to dream.Weary,on his way home he gazed at the star-studded sky and returned flying,longing to see the city,feeling a sense of happiness while dressed as a macaw soaring into the heights.Then he saw the lights of an altar.At home,his space,his refuge,he dressed in colours and began to paint.
