Commited - A Love Story

Acabei! Uhu! Quem esteve comigo no ano passado sabe que ler foi uma atividade meio escassa... Infelizmente eu li muito mais coisas de trabalho por pura necessidade do que coisas levinhas... E muitas vezes quando eu tinha o tempo livre eu preferia mesmo era cair no sofá e assistir GNT, coisa que estou fazendo nesse exato momento e juro que poderia passar dias inteirinhos só assisintindo GNT, reprises, beleza, saúde, arquitetura, culinária, beleza de novo... Adoro...

Well, mas voltando... Terminei de ler o livro e eu tenho uma mania de marcar umas partes que eu gosto ou me chamam atenção de alguma forma.... Como eu li a versão em inglês não vou traduzir porque muito provavelmente eu não vou encontrar a melhor maneira de escrever como Liz Gilbert.

Vale dizer antes de começar que ela começou a pesquisar o ritual casamento uma vez que a única chance dela ficar com o Felipe, o brasileiro que ela conhece em Bali no livro anterior seria casando com ele.....

Em alguma mini cidade da Ásia (a maioria do livro se passa por lá) ela conversando e perguntando como sempre com uma senhorinha usando uma menina como intérprete:

"Is your man a good husband?"I asked.
The old woman had to ask her granddaughter to repeat the question severalties, just to make sure she'd heard it correctly: Is he a good husband? Then she gave me a bemused look, as though I'd asked, "These stones which compose the mountains in which you live - are they good stones?
The best answer she could come up with was this: Her husband was neither a good husband nor a bad husband. He was just a husband. He was the way the husbands are.

Ela falando sobre as contas do casal....
Felipe and I have both over time, learned this hard fact to be incontrovertibly true: If you think it's difficult to talk about money when you're blissfully in love, try talking about it later, when you are disconsolate and angry and your love has died.

Devaneios... O mulher que pensa essa Liz viu...
The Buddha taught that most problems - if you only give them enough time and space - will eventually wear themselves out.

Lionel Tiger - "It is astonishing that, under the circumstances, marriage is still legally allowed. If nearly half of anything else ended so disastrously the government would surely ban it immediately. If half tacos served in a restaurant caused dysentery, if half the people learning karate broke their palms, if only 6 percent of people who went on roller coaster rides damaged their middle ears, the public would be clamoring for action, Yet the most intimate of disasters... happens over and over again"

Falando sobre os pais e a força das mulheres da sua família
This certainly was the case with my parents. "She whipped me into shape", is my dad's summation of the love story. Mostly he's okay with this, though sometimes - say, in the middle of a family gathering, surrounded by his powerful wife and his equally powerful daughters - my father resembles nothing more than a puzzled old circus bear who cannot seem to figure out how he came to be quite so high on this strange unicycle.

"To be perfectly honest, the best part of my life began as soon as you kids grew up and left the house" - a mãe dela respondendo qual foi a melhor part da vida dela no casamento. Kkkkkk.

"Marriage is a beatiful thing. But it's also a constant battle for moral supremacy" Marge Simpson

Ela pensando com ela mesma... Mais devaneios....
Every couple in the world has the potential over time to become a small and isolated nation of two - creating their own culture, their own language, and their own moral code, to with nobody else can be privy.

Even in that most repressive age (anos 1600), once the doors were closed and the people could make they own choices, each couple defined it own terms of intimate expression,
In the end, the couples tend to win.

E foi assim! Curti mais o primeiro livro, mas é sempre bom ler algo assim leve numa virada de ano, né não?!
