In The Mood For


{loving the red hues of leaves on the trees}

No one can, bears, wants to hear talking  about the crisis, but the fact is that as we approach the holiday season and the end of the year, we see more and more people downcasted, dissatisfied, resignated and dispirited. When I realize that some children are doing the only decent meal at school, families are desperate to fulfill their financial obligations, people who until recently lived relatively well are now stripped of a roof for living it seems to me sometimes a little ungrateful and superficial of me to devote so much time looking for images that can beautify people's lives. However, I hope that in doing sobecause I am also in the same boat of uncertainty of Portuguese households, I can at least momentarily take you to a world where dreams do not come with an increased VAT! I wish you a happy and cozy weekend! I'm in the mood for ...


Já ninguém pode, aguenta,deseja ouvir falar de crise, mas o que é facto é que à medida que nos vamos aproximando da época natalícia e do final do ano, se vê as pessoas mais cabisbaixas, inconformadas, resignadas e em desalento. Quando me consciencializo de que há crianças a fazer a única refeição decente na escola,  famílias desesperadas por cumprir as suas obrigações financeiras, pessoas que até há pouco tempo viviam bem e foram despojadas um tecto sob o qual possam viver parece-me, por vezes, um pouco ingrato e superficial da minha parte dedicar tanto tempo à procura de imagens que possam embelezar a vida das pessoas. No entanto, espero que ao fazê-lo, pois também me encontro no mesmo barco de incerteza que muitos outros portugueses, possa pelo menos momentaneamente, transportar-vos para um mundo no qual os sonhos ainda não vêm com IVA acrescido! Desejo-vos um feliz e aconchegante fim de semana! Apetece-me...

  1. Pois, ás vezes tb sinto o mesmo, mas na verdade é bom ter este outlet da realidade negra que nos rodeia. É bom por vezes afastarmos a mente das coisas más e apenas deleitarmo-nos com um pouco de beleza. Seja em que forma for. Bom fim de semana!

  18. I always wondered what to do with orange. Now I know.

    Yes, these times resemble our grandparents struggle with the Depression (MY grandparents, your GREAT-grandparents). We need to remember that they survived (most of them) and became the wondrously strong and resourceful people that we admired so much. We need to remember their lessons and return to their simple and creative ways. As a society, we've grown so far apart from each other because there has been no need for us to be together. Let's be positive, and take this opportunity to grow into people that OUR grandchildren will admire...
