Double-sided

Humility and timidity rhyme as effortlessly as  self-assuredness and misinterpretation. It is just a matter of interaction.

Prose

Sighing is to disappointment what tears are to sadness. But when smiling makes you slumber, you have no choice but to share it.

The Membrane

IF you fill your interior with accumulating thoughts and swelling ideas, mindsets may commence to mold.

What is the use of inner richness when it leaves the outside devoided of interest?

When the content is as impressive as it is private, the surface will be deemed just puny.

Shades

Myths are interesting to me because they are stories that can be told in perpetuity. They’re stories that can be told again and again… And there’s always nuance.

Time for cuteness

A lovely short-film from Brazil, 2010’s I Don’t Want to Go Back Alone 

Written and directed by Daniel Ribeiro; Guilherme Lobo plays Leo, Tess Amorim is Gi and Fabio Audi plays Gabriel.

The Dancer

I’ve cried days

I’ve cried nights

For the Lord just to send me home some sign

Is he near? Is he far?

Bring peace to my black and empty heart

Revealing

Perfection, any kind of perfection, always demands some kind of concealment.

Without something hiding itself, or remaining hidden, there is no perfection.

(Roberto Calasso, The Marriage of Cadmus and Harmony)

Little boy

Baby said he couldn’t stay
Wouldn’t put his lips to mine
And a fail to kiss is a fail to cope

And I said: honey, I don’t feel so good
Don’t feel justified
Come on put a little love here in my void

He said: it’s all in your head
And I said: so it’s everything
But he didn’t get it

I thought he was a man

But he was just a little boy

Lyrics by Fiona Apple,  picture via East Village Boys

Ripeness

As one grows older, one learns to let go of impossible or distracting goals
Not without pain, not without despair, but with a tiny bit of disturbing dignity

And at times of optimism, it comes with tons of hope
And a stroke of self-respect

Ongoing

Emotional ins and outs, ups and downs, aboves and beyonds, throughs and bys, withins and withouts, backwards and forwards, likes and unlikes never seem to make me learn a thing.

It’s ongoing

Soon?

This is my second most important imaginary love.

Unfortunately, I didn’t meet him in São Paulo last month.

But that day will come.

Or so I wish.

Meeting beauty

While in São Paulo, I met Marlon Teixeira.

He’s sweet, shy and funny.

I’m in heaven.

Me now

Today I shall pose

And try to send all my love to the camera

It’s time

May the new year signal the beginning of a new era of justice, equality and… freedom.

Happy 2012!

Have a creative one

Carnal

They say gay people are narcisistic.

They say gay people are shallow.

They say gay people worry too much about looks.

They say gay people think too much about sex.

And you know what? It is true; but what a lovely, refreshing break from real life.

Meet Marcos & Márcio Patriota, two twin beauties from B and understand why it is not that bad, at all, to appreciate it:

What a break from yesterday’s seriousness, isn’t it?
