Season memories

As most of you know, it is summer in the southern hemisphere.

But then, when you live in a (mostly) tropical country such as Brazil, summer is practically the only season there is.

Having lived in colder regions of the planet on different occasions, I know how the end of the year can be depressive. So, in order to try to instill some sunny hope into the lives of those who lack a bit of warmth, here’s a selection of summery images by German photographer Matthias Heiderich:

I love the choice of pastel colors and the way they remind us of how prone to fading memories are. What is dark and cold today will only be part of future recollections tomorrow.

I can hardly remember how the cold feels as write…

No judgements, please.

Motion in culture

Today is Brazil’s National Day.

For most of us though, September 07 is just a day to enjoy our friends’ and families’ companies or basically do nothing – by a pool, preferably.

So here I was, just surfing the internet after lovely breakfast with dear guests when I found Karin Dreijer Andersson‘s mixtape on DazedDigital.

Listen to her delightful music list here

It is so remarkable how my tastes sometimes go around in circles. If you read this blog, you probably know I’m mildly obsessed with both Africa and Scandinavia.

Fever Ray's new tour costumes

These places are universes apart, but then I come across one of my favorite artist’s playlist and find lots of African music in it.

I should have known by now that Fever Ray is always surprising. It seems that what I wrote about the end of the project might have been a bit hasty. Since then it seems Karin changed her mind. The new tour is a witness to that change.

How extraordinary it is to see all these tastes and references come together. Unlike what most xenophobes might believe, culture is not stagnant.

You do the math.
