A Star is born

How amazing it is to glimpse the birth of a star, I have always believed that my dad became a star after passing just like in THE LION KING… and if we are all stardust then how beautiful it is to imagine that we become stars again…

3 April

Astronomers have witnessed a key stage in the birth of a very heavy star, using two radio telescope views of the process taken 18 years apart.

The young star is 4,200 light-years from Earth and appears to be surrounded by a doughnut-shaped cloud of dust.

That cloud slows down the hot, ionised wind that the star blasts into space, causing it to form an elongated column perpendicular to the dusty ring.

The new results represent “before and after” glimpses of that column forming.

They were captured by the Very Large Array, a battery of 27 antennae in the New Mexico desert, and are published in the journal Science._82092676_after

One to watch

The infant star is about 300 times brighter than the Sun and goes by the catchy name of W75N(B)-VLA2.

Being able to observe its dramatic growing pains in real time is unique, according to Prof Huib van Langevelde from Leiden University in the Netherlands, another of the study’s authors.

“The comparison is remarkable,” said first author Carlos Carrasco-Gonzalez, from the National Autonomous University of Mexico. The compact, rounded wind indicated by data from 1996 transforms – just 18 years later in 2014 – into a “distinctly elongated outflow

Turn and face the strange…chchchanges

I am so scared!!!

I don’t know if you remember the stone cottage I bought at auction and I was euphoric at the time but as reality sets I am so frightened… The plan is to move our home then finish the cottage and sell it again and it’s a great plan. We decided we needed to do things that would take us out of our comfort zone while we are not too old ( and isn’t life all about changes and facing your fears, get out of your comfort zone and live?).

Sometimes I feel like I am carrying the world and balancing between two gigantic buildings in New York on top of a thin line … AHHHAHHH

I have moved countries with a tiny baby for goodness sakes !!! I have moved out of my comfort zone the moment I was born and I have felt like this before, maybe it’s age or maybe it’s because I did my home with love and it’s difficult to just let go… The situation is not bad and I am privileged to own two beautiful homes at the moment, I am a lucky b…ee… if you know what I mean? But that is so scary …

We are all tired and now I am reminded about a nightmare I have sometimes .. We are couples and we have to dance until the last one standing wins but hey?! It’s not a nightmare but reality disguised in caricatures of enhanced realities. And in life, sometimes, while living it you think it’s hard but it does pass and on tomorrow’s yesterday this memory will be a happy memory since I will have faced my fears already and will look for more challenges. The moment we stop challenging our comfort zone is the day we die and so that’s where I am in life at the moment.

Have a nice week and think about it… We build a perfect life and get comfortable, where we go from there it’s what distinguish us as eternal beauties or statues.

PINS&APPSHMACKS

I’ve been busy but not that busy see? What happened to me is a syndrome of modern times… Let’s face it….It would be so much better if passwords and pins were just one… One no one could reach like a piece of your skin or DNA rubbed in to the screen of the computer because I suffer with pins and bobs of securely entering my account.

1- two-step authentication Right in here to get the authentication app you need to have a special password to enter the kingdom of the” I-PET ” and to do that you need you old password and pass code and numbers that have to be printed with mobiles and then …. oops … Lost it….

2- We have tools for 2-step authentication I have so many tools that I never know which is which? They are similar !

3- Lost my mobile-changed my cards. Now step in to my world, to change mobile, cancel the lost one what do you need? You guessed right pin and another pin on top of that and then you need to set up all your pins on the current phone (4 weeks least for that) considering I have a life outside the digital world

4- The next step is to set up your laptop, tablet and co. to the new tool and to all the other tools, and then to do that? You need another tool and gadget!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

5-£%^YT&IOY%RRTCVKHY&EYYRJK<

6-AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

7- Oh yeah sure some content for the blog!

8- Who cares ? I am exhausted and have no time for such nonsense!!!!!!!

 

Cinders complex

I have been busy and as usual my compulsive behaviour has taken me to other shores and I have learned new skills for when I’m old, I am learning to knit and crochet. I have learned when small with my grandmother and decided I would learn again. Chess I learned with my grandfather too but learned again with my husband. We used to make gigantic competitions listening to classical music and drinking wine on the winter cold days until I got so irritated from loosing that I bit his head but it’s a good story to explain my competitive side once I start playing games. About CINDERS it’s that us human beings in general make choices in life and once living through our choices we tend to self-pity ourselves. It’s funny how reality crashes on us sometimes. Well it’s getting cold now and I still believe that if it’s worth it then you’ll have to deal with a little bit of reality because the pink glass or “La vie en rose” can be just as debilitating as not acting to reach your dreams. So long for now, reality hits me once more. In a hurry as usual but better for talking about it.

A mermaid’s tale and a maid’s tail

A mermaid’s tale and a maid’s tail
So I have vanished for a while but the truth is I’ve been busy and I haven’t been inspired to write. I good friend of mine said that to be creative you have to be a bit melancholic and I agree. I’ve been busy taking control over certain things. I took control over what I eat and am happy now with my body and myself. I was out of control, eating like an overfed fish, I wouldn’t fit my clothes anymore and I was so sad. I wanted to find myself but all my actions were contrary and I was shifting far away from my goals. My body wasn’t answering and I didn’t know how to change that vicious circle. Then suddenly the perspective of change, moving houses, organizing and giving to charity all that I wasn’t wearing for many years, waking up at six in the morning and being in control of time and not letting it control me. So I am changing, like the snake of time, shedding the scales and growing my inner power.
I lost the weight that bothered me and I control time. My dressing room doesn’t look like a war zone and I’ve been experimenting on using my creativity instead of my credit card. My daughter asked me for a mermaid’s tail to use it for a bath, looking on amazon I found a mermaid tail that cost no more and no less than £54 pounds so I decided to dust the sewing machine and went to a farmer’s market where I knew they had fabrics. The result is that I only spent £8 and she was so proud of her tail. I bet you if I had bought one so expensive she wouldn’t like it as much. In one afternoon of SINGER’s manual and a few pricks on my fingers I finished the tail.
I dye my own hair when in England because I am really loyal to my hairdresser in Brazil. So I decided to dye my hair on Friday and forgot about it the minute I left the bathroom so when I came back home at night the bathroom did look like a murder scene with brown hair dye staining the bath tub, I tried to clean and couldn’t  AAAHHHHH!!!!  Today I sprayed the bath tub with vanish for clothes and RESULT it was a miracle. Here is the tip if you ever had the same problem…. Vanish for stained fabric is a miracle in the bath tub!!!! YEAHHHHH!!!
Have a great Sunday and a great week!

Maintain the dream alive FOR EVER!

So as the mother of a girl and being a girl, I find myself in a web of princess crazed mania where my biggest nightmare is what else is there now?
First love was Cinderella, so here I go and buy the movie and then I discover movies II and III which I managed to not buy. Books are a must for the bedtime stories, and then the dress was very important along with the Barbie or Disney's version "Barbie" princess that lights up but not much fun since their legs are constrained but the light apparatus.
Your dreams will come true
Then it was a mixture in my head of Sophia the first, sleeping beauty, Alice in wonderland, snow-white, ... You name it!
I've got to confess that until I read the books at least three nights in a roll I feel very entranced in the fantasy world of Evil and good, princes that will fight for the princess and they will marry and live happily ever after... The end...
But what if I told you that once my daughter has the movie she feels too scared to watch it so what do I do? Oh yes now it's Elsa (Disney) based on the ICE QUEEN from Danish Hans Christian  Andersen

n the cold never bothered me anyway

Named  "Snedronningen"
But the truth is that it never ends ! And could start criticising the industry here and then capitalism and modern days ! But I will digress from the subject in place.
So dress from Elsa, earrings and the thing is trendy and difficult to get! Not to mention expensive!

https://play.spotify.com/album/19dqa2yIehtaN4kBwpSEvP

What happens to us girls when we grow up? Yes you got it, we keep hoping the prince will come and save us from the evil reality that is life. And depending on the point of view you can actually find a good hardworking man who will fall in love with you and let's face it, treat you well. But until you realize that fairy tales are beautiful but in reality you will hit the days when you just want to scream "What have I done?!!!!!"
So how to prepare your child for life and tell them at the same time that if you wish something and believe your dreams will come true? Well that's a very good question and I get to be questioned a lot. I believe that all my dreams come true and whatever I dream will come true but I also believe that this will happen thanks to my actions and choices. So if ever confronted between ruining a fantasy world for your child to share reality that hurts think about it.... Because this precious little child might stop believing and then what? So what I say is that dreams will only come true if you WISH,ACT and then be PATIENT !
But then the balance between truth and lie telling your child that she won't fly if she jumps from her window to NEVERLAND because Tinkerbell forgot the "magic dust" and she won't  but what am I going to say? " So I tell her TINKERBELL got so many requests for magic dust she decided to take large groups of people from now on and she works in airports ! " I catch myself saying this to my daughter and saying I have FIRE power that comes through my hand but NO..... I can not show it to you because it's DANGEROUS...
Yes it’s dangerous to my sanity at the moment.
Have a very dreamy week and CARPE DIEM

About the TITLE

As previously published in https://unfocusedsecretbeautee.com/2014/07/20/a-letter-to-sophie-kinsella/

Where I explain the reason there is a need for changing the name of my blog I took control and stopped being a "LAZY DAZY" thanks to Blogging 101 that has taught me so much. Although I am late to the task I changed the name of my blog. 

What do you think?

The Sacred in you

So I have told you all about my adventures on the property Auction and then after purchasing the property I have to tell you that it's hard work but it will be worth it. It's a stone cottage and we found out it exists since 1850's but even then those were the oldest registers we could find. There are original features but my goodness it needs love! 

I feel the ghosts there...
There is an eucalyptus tree and an apple tree, roses were covering the stone house with its thorns to the point of suffocation so the house was buried in thorns like in Sleeping Beauty but there was no beauty to be found there, there was damp because as pretty as it looked from the outside the ivy and the roses were they did not allow the house to breath and we found there was a draining ditch completely blocked on purpose at the back of the house so that was another damp source. 

My daughter started Reception in Pre-School this week as well and she has homework! Personally I wasn't keen on homework as a child and now I'm working on building an opposite reaction on her. 

I got back from Brasil with a renewed energy and ready to live my dreams and help my family to do the same. I had this massage in Brasil called bioenergetic massage when in Gravatal and if you believe in the spiritual world you'll understand when I say that it changed the core of my emotions unblocking a sadness and a weight I was carrying along with me. I cried and with a special breathing and some words from the therapist I started to understand that I was living to make everybody around me happy but I wasn't thinking about making myself happy and so I could not reach anything if you know what I mean? Life is full of obstacles and sometimes we lose the thread of what motivated us to start in the first place...

I was listening yesterday on the radio, while driving my car through a tunnel of green trees, about this book called "Sacred places" I think and the author was explaining about it that some places are sacred due to its extreme beauty given by nature and that beauty surrounds you and you feel the presence of the divine other places are sacred because they are places where people go to pray and feel gratitude, another kind of sacred place is the one where many strong people of faith, and it doesn't matter the faith, lived. And so the author was explaining that we all have maps in out heads and places we seek to when we need comfort or strength...

If you go deep inside yourself you will find everything you were looking for, the energy to follow your dreams, the strength you need to make that jump! The power is in you and don't you ever forget that.

From Brasil with love and back

I'm back and full of good energies and missed you all so much! I went to Brazil with my daughter for 3 weeks and as usual going to Brasil does bring back my insecurities but it makes me work hard to get the self image a boost. First you get there after 24 hours without sleep and totally bloated from three flights and you know you're above weight and Brazil is the place to feel self conscience on the image you project. I got there one day after my Birthday and my mom was the best, she spoiled me and my daughter so much!
It's good to be spoiled and loved and going back to spend time with the F-A-M-I-L-Y ...
My father's had a younger brother called Henrique do Valle that died in 1981 of an overdose result caused by the time the coup 1964 when my family was exiled and after that non of the young children exiled was ever the same. My uncle was a pure and beautiful soul and a poet that had lightness of fairies and rage of a generation oppressed , so a few months ago I was contacted by an editorial and press about his work being me his only living relative I gave them the material and signed authorization for a new book. In Brazil this month I went to the book launch and what an honour to see my relatives and many people who loves his work there. I remember sitting by his lap and pressing the buttons of his writing machine orange coloured in his bedroom. Legend says I was the only one allowed to touch it. I was 3 years old when he passed away...
I went to a magical place called Gravatal in Santa Catarina where important things along my life happened. The Hotel Termas do Gravatal international has a wealth of healthy programs and volcanic waters released for a few hours a day in to marble baths and the waters are warm at around 37*C naturally from the source. I grew up going there since there is a special friend of my mom and my dad and mine who owns it. She is the most beautiful woman with the giant heart of a lioness like me. When I was a teen she took me there for a few weeks to take my drivers licence and would just lend me the car to practice. And when I met my husband I took him there and we spent our honey moon there. This place is located between green mountains with tracks to hike, mud baths, wine therapy baths, chocolate baths and all sorts of therapeutic massages and therapies. Going there with my daughter and having those jets of pure thermal water cleansing and massaging my being. Seeing friends I grew up with was just rejuvenating and perfect. My mom was so sweet to look after my daughter and letting me heal and enjoy that paradise.

Then I went to my hairdresser Dimi Rafaelli and he did his miracle on me with the brazilian hair keratine brush followed by a many/pedi at the same time with a waxing and my eyelashes being permanently curled up by Carmen Barcellos both in Porto Alegre, Hugo Beauty Lageado.
I need to confess that I have caved in to a little botox in my forehead perfectly performed by a dermatologist specialized in beauty called Veronica Bender in Porto Alegre as well..
Thanks Brazil for lifting my self image to the sky!

A LETTER TO SOPHIE KINSELLA

Dear Sophie Kinsella,

I am a great admirer of your books and have read them all. Becky Bloom from Shopaholic is my favourite but all your books are delightfully funny. My husband doesn’t let me read them at night because I laugh so loud I wake him up. I would like to apologise about the tittle of my Blog but any person who actually knows me will confirm it to you that I am not very domestic. I do try though and when I chose the name “The Undomestic Goddess” I did it inspired by your book which was read a long time ago. I really didn’t imagine that I would end up really enjoying to blog and since I have never been very serious about anything I didn’t imagine I would end up with more than 2000 followers. I intend to change the name of my blog as soon as possible but in the meantime please consider my most sincere apologies.

Wishing you all the best,

Sybil

TRUE FRIENDS

MAKE FRIENDS MAKE FRIENDS NEVER EVER BRAKE FRIENDS
We were born with a few months difference, put together in the cradle when our parents were parting in the end of seventies and legend says she sucked my big toes in place of using the pacifier. We grew up as best friends at the same street. I used to get sick with her so we could skip school and play cards. We used to fight like sisters do, I remember she was biting my hands and I was squashing her cheeks with all my might. Two minutes later we were friends again.  We didn’t go to the same school and frequented different social circles. We  are so different, She went after a career that satisfies her and I admire her for that while I became a “barbie” as she put it once and then a mother. It never mattered to us who we were with and our differences we were always there for each other with a phone call or a visit. Wherever we are in life I know She is always there for me.
True friends might tell you off when they see you unhappy or being bad to yourself but you don’t feel judged or bad for being who you are. She knows who I am and I know who she is in the essence. She knows I can be ugly inside and loves me even so and it’s the same for me. We have been like this for as long as I can remember. Because we are true friends we are not jealous of our victories but we are happy. She came to visit and again we are best friends. I love her and she loves me for ever....

Dreams do come true…

 

Million dollar baby without the boxing ...
There are so many things I have always wanted to do and never got the chance to, places I would like to go, that patchwork quilt made of all the fabric I keep stuffed everywhere in the house. In fact if I start to think about it critically about myself it will be torture so what I do is think about that movie, yeah THAT MOVIE GIVES ME COMFORT because in “Million Dollar Baby” the girl is 30 plus years old and she has a dream and goes after it with all that she has even against all odds she goes for the coach she wants but he spends the whole movie saying she is too old and just starting so she has no chance. Ok I admit it that the end is sad but even then it’s an inspiring movie because it makes me value life and accept the age I am now, gives me hope because she proves they were wrong to put her down, she makes herself be admired and loved by the coach and by love I mean fraternal love.  I haven't made it clear until now that I don’t want to become a professional boxer and never had career ambitions. In fact today, apart from one stone over my mental images, I pretty much achieved all of my childhood dreams and mental images of how my life would be.

 

Empires do fall and rise again

In the end we don't carry material things with us, we carry our memories and sometimes we do so much to meet "perfection" that we end up losing the plot, losing the moment and becoming less than perfect. I 've been trying so hard and being frustrated about the results that I forgot about having fun. Empires fall and rise like everything else in the world, the rules are tightening because there are too many of us and society collapse it's just a matter of time. No I am not a pessimist, I am a pragmatist and if you think too much you risk not risking causing the loop effect,getting down is good too because then you know the trampoline is there ready to kick you back in to the game. 

In the end we are star-dust, bits of divine nature and light. There is no but and in the end I really need to clean de-clutter some more and give away to charity so much but egotistical beings we are human beings, after all... I wish I was Martha Stewart and I wish I was Gandhi but since I am just me I can only do my best and start with the first step to the giant journey. Today I was cheering for Brazil.


Blade Runner and the power of the phoenix

 When I was small my daddy used to take me to the cinema, he was quite blind and had to wear contacts to see anything so when in the movies we used to get the front row and at the end of the movie my daddy used to get on his feet and clap his hands. He grew up in Buenos Aires where it’s a costume to clap at the end of a movie or a long haul flight. I remember being really small and going to see Blade Runner, his favourite movie at the time. And by the end of the movie he said to me that it did not matter what was happening in my life, to go to the movies when I needed to switch of. My father used to set the scenes and use all around him as puppets to his own entertainment, not in a bad or mean way. People just liked to please him, to make him laugh. It’s funny because I remember his eyes and what they said in different situations. With my parents I have learned about complicity (in the dictionary it means to be a partner in crime) and that is what we all aim, isn’t it? Bad and good shared secrets. A person who understands and loves every single bit of us. Because it does not matter how good we try to appear, every single person has secret parts that are not perfection and lightness. 
Would there be light without darkness? Certainly not! When I see a person claiming perfection I feel scared because I don’t believe in that. I believe that if you are really good at one thing it is due to the opposite quality being strong in you (yeah! I know…The force is strong in you Anakin/Darth Vader). If you feel really scared about a certain thing you will perfect that about yourself until you are, to the eyes of the world, fearless. But deep inside we all know that the fear is there, lingering and insinuating itself. The fear of not being good enough, the fear of being ugly, the fear of being ill, the fear… No one is fearless, we all have our fears and cooping solutions that might sometimes even create serious threats to our health. Even the kamikaze will one day realize that the fear was that of a boring life. The athlete realizes one day that the fear was defeat. The business tycoon will realize that the fear was to be poor. And so on, I believe that we all do have darkness and light, good and bad, sad and happy, truth and lies. Us human beings are complex little tiny creatures that spend our precious lives fighting whatever is inside of us we consider wrong or ugly or mistaken. History was built-in it.
YIN and Yang, light and darkness, evil and goodness… Success and failure, abundant and scattered, the opposites are always so close in themselves and they are enemies and lovers inside this such thing called SOULS …It's easy to judge and criticise but it's really difficult to look inside ourselves and question what are our motivations and why do we criticize knowing we could not do it better. Mirrors and sand are my answers. Mirrors because we usually criticize most what we see in others that consciously or not is ugly inside ourselves. We project in others the hate and frustrations we've got. And of course directly proportional is our admiration and flatter when we identify our beauty in others. Sand is all the "castles made of sand that fall in to the sea, eventually" (Jimmy Hendrix) and this I say it because in our minds we create scenarios and towers of thoughts and projections that eventually might crumble in the sea of destruction and chaos. Not all of it but some.
I guess the meaning of this article is that we can't project in others our frustrations or outcomes to our dreams, the best we can do is to reach our deepest motivations and fight our fears so that we can shine our light. We have to fight the darkness within and let the beauty of this internal fight outshine everything else. Empires fall and all that goes up, one day goes down and vice versa. If you ever find yourself deep in the bottom of the well called life, don't give up and imagine a giant trampoline there waiting for you. That's how I always did, imagine the power of the PHOENIX ...
We are not robots but at least the robots from Blade Runner wanted to live and you? What do you want?

 

 

 

Jumping on the running horse of opportunities

"She had an unequalled gift... of squeezing big mistakes into small opportunities" 
 Henry James
My mom always said that " opportunities are like a running horse and if you don't jump on it the horse won't come back" so sometimes the horse is running and you don't jump because you are too scared and you are measuring the risks. It's ok though because maybe it wasn't meant to be but sometimes you have to risk it a little bit and create more opportunities. In my view that is the only way to make the most out of life.


Making friends with good old Nature

THE CAMPING TRIP

I have a confession to make... I have never been on a camping trip before yesterday. Since sunday I hosted a Birthday party for seventeen four years old little friends of my currently four years old daughter. By the end of the party I came back home and started opening presents and writing down thank you cards. Then we decided that on monday we would go camping (we didn't have a tent or sleeping bags or anything) for the night of monday only. So yesterday I woke up and got some clothes and some food and we went to the supermarket then the outdoors shop to buy a tent. We set up the tent and I decided to explore the surroundings with my little daughter and we ended up in an Idyllic beach after going down a mountain through a deserted enchanted forest with waterfalls and streams running throughout. The forest reminded me of Snow White's Fairytale. By the time We got to the beach we were already tired and my dear daughter was already asking me for a cuddle (to be carried on my arms) and we had the way up the hill to face. I put my bravest face and we started climbing that hill forest, I was scared by then because it was a gloomy forest and what if we got lost? plus it was 17hs by then... up we went while having my daughter in my back sometimes. At a certain point I thought with myself that I would not be able to finish it but there was no phone coverage (not one little bar) and if I gave up then we would have to what? Sleep in the forest? plus I did believe we were lost. My clothes were all dirty and sweat left my hair wet  but I could not give up... By then it was a nightmare and I started thinking about those stories of tourists that disappear and are never found... I couldn't seem nervous for my daughter's sake... I heard then what sounded like a helicopter and thought that maybe it was my husband worried since we had left for 4 hours but we kept going because no helicopter would spot us deep in those woods and knowing my husband I knew he would only worry if it was night and we were not back... then it escaped my mouth "I DO NOT LIKE NATURE IN TIMES LIKE THIS". And after what seemed like an eternity I found the first fence that would lead us back to the camping site. After three more fences we would be back. My arms were killing me from holding my brave daughter, my glutes were burning and started raining hard when we got to the tent. My husband had just started the fire and was not in the least worried drinking a beer. I was in shock but cleaned myself and my daughter and got some warm clothes. Stopped raining and we got to see the most amazing sunset while my daughter played and we ate the most delicious meal cooked by the fire and drank a lovely bottle of wine and by the time I put my daughter to sleep She asked me if I would go to sleep and I responded that I would go back outside for a bit to enjoy the nature surrounding us and she said to me "But mommy I thought you said you don't like nature?" which gave me and my husband the biggest giggle in history. We went to our comfy fluffy sleeping bags and I woke up at 5:00 a.m and left them both asleep to go back to the forest where I walked for two hours and finished with a bath in the cold water of the stream of the mountain that I conquered!!! I apologised then to my old friend nature...

Homemade beauty DIY HAIR RINSE

HOMEMADE BEAUTY-HAIR

Nature provides us with everything we need to heal and purify. It’s half term here in sunny Britain and I have been so busy. Life is funny because it comes in waves for me. I always use the sea and its tides to relate to events in my life. I don’t know how to say it in English about the series of waves after the Sea was flat, so I will go back to beauty tips for I digress.
I do like to invent potions and lotions with flowers and herbs from the garden and kitchen spices….

HAIR
Good for shine and dandruff – Sage+rosemary+vinegar 

With water covering sage and rosemary take it to boil and leave it there on low heat with the pan covered for 30 minutes after boil. Then do not uncover the pan and forget about it overnight. On the next day mix the water resultant from the boil with vinegar and voila!

After washing your hair as usual use this for the last rinse...

GARDENING MY LOVE FOR YOU

 

 SUNSHINE IN MY HEART

 

SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC      For mother's day in Uk my husband and three years old daughter started a project for the garden planting sunflower seeds and salad, tomatoes, fennel,basil and flowers. On the last day in nursery the project in school was a sunflower vase (allegedly with a sunflower seed in it) and only a mother could realize that there would be no bulb there so what we did, me and husband, in the middle of the night was transport one of the previously planted seeds to my daughter's school project before mother's day. It became a tradition here for mother's day I always get bulbs of my favourite flowers and they plant it together growing during the summer ! Sunshine to everyone it's what I am wishing to all of you!

ORIGIN OF PARADOX

In the virtual reality lies the impersonal close mindset of the disconnection with the origin of our most inherent needs as human beings. Like a doctor who refuses to treat a patient unless the patient is healed, healthy and complies with all the necessary healthy living habits for the best possible function of the human body so are banks and society in general.

Another theory comes to mind. Those places so big like Shopping Malls, Supermarkets, DIY Shops, Department Stores …   So big that one could compare it to Temples or Cathedrals – ADORE YOUR ALMIGHTY GOD OF SHOPPING – and a laugh come out with that thought  – “Maybe what I need is to go and live in the country like you see in the country living magazines and all, yes that would be nice, I could do that”  or go to a cabin in the middle of n getting in the car to rush again this time with a renewed sense of purpose DO NOT BE LATE and all that “Another thought springs to my stressed, tired little head then, I will write my thoughts by and will keep it secret for I have been really weird and disconnected from my friends, living in fantasy land more like”  or am I?

10 reasons not to leave a husband unattended with his tools

I left for one afternoon and here is what I found when I got back home and here I can tell you what my reaction was …

“Darling are you building a jacuzzi?”

“Just like in Shrek where we can trump inside?”

“I am so glad about this WHOLE pipe bullying”

“Sweet I’ve always wanted a pool”

“Please don’t tell me you are digging to get to China?”

Of all the reasons why I shouldn’t leave him+tools alone for an afternoon

1)Messy

2)Messy inside the house

3)dusty

4)No showers

5)No water

6)3 days?

7)4days?

8)tools spreaded around the house

9)smelly

10)”101010 I forgot what 10 was for” quote to a song I don’t remember by who

 

Well despite that he found that there was a leak and he is fixing it before the whole house falls down (apparently)

LIVE FAST,DIE YOUNG AND HAVE A NICE CORPSE

LIVE FAST,DIE YOUNG AND HAVE NICE CORPSE

Oscar Wilde

I have lived by this quote when younger. My daddy died when I was 17 years old and he was 39 and seven days before he would complete 40 years old and seven days after I completed 17 years old. At the time I felt a sort of lightness as if I was flying and free and maybe it is because I knew my dad was flying free. To love and to care is to create roots and shackles of responsibility for once again I have to call for my most prized greek philosophers and the theory that whatever you posses does posses you creating a lack of freedom. We all want freedom and at the same time We want to love and be loved and in the paradox of our eternal bottomless pit of desires and ambitions resides the unobtainable reality of the dreams that can not be. The lyrics of the Rolling Stones "You can't always get what you want but if you try sometimes... You just might find... You get what you need" makes sense.
So what if We all could get everything we want? We still wouldn't be happy because human beings need to need and desire to desire. We are always fighting and if we all had the power to obtain easily or knew we would then where would the fun be? We would all die of boredom.As Oscar Wilde shows in Dorian Grey because he could do anything he wanted and live forever but that freedom turn his life in debauch and emptiness.
In "Brave new world" by Aldous Huxley, my life changed. I read it and realized a few things: 1)the umbilical cord of motherhood is the first of our prisons and in the natural evolution of a normal life we will seek to create shackles of love at some point; 2) I discovered then the difference between the idea and the reality are two different things for, in reality, the biggest prison does not reside in the love from a mother to a child or vice versa but it does live in our own minds. The conclusion then is that our cooping mechanisms and actions are the jail and how we react to life in society and so on what do we expect from our selves and others and what we think others expect from us and how react to that speculation .
In reality, relationships are mirrors of how we feel and what we are in essence. And the world spins accordingly to our rhythm for it is all just the law of action and reaction!
Miss you dad, with all my heart.

Blog Stereotyper 101

I have observed other blogs and as a complete newbie in this game I have got to be honest and spill it. No I didn't start a blog to record memories as nice little life Journal and my life is not so interesting that made from my blog a fashionable Freshly pressed blog. And no again, I do not have only one single subject I am writing about or a goal related to my blog. And maybe I will fail to meet world domination through this humble blog.
Again I have to say that I don't think I will be introducing any ideas unexplored already. And yes I am and have always been against the machine that dictates the "suggestions" and tips for a better traffic in the blog. I aim to be genuine and not a sheep 101. I started this blog because on my midlife crisis and am scared of dying as just a number more in the stats. I am afraid of being just one more puny "human being". I am cold with fear of mortality and anonymity.

Sometimes I wish I had a time travel machine you know? So I could fly and meet all this extraordinary people… Maybe they were only able to inspire us until today because their lives had a purpose or they were really ambitious to achieve a something. Do you have a purpose? Do you want to achieve something ? Why? What are your motivations? Questions

Dystopian theories or reality?

Being an only child you get used to moments of complete introspection and sometimes complete loneliness plus that combined with my total lack of abilities to any sort of sports led me to make an extreme effort on the social behaviour bordering my instincts to become tainted for I remember feeling so different in my tastes, I remember trying really hard to pretend to be normal and slightly dumb because I needed to fit in and maybe I tried so hard I lost my weirdness that made me so UNIQUE , that was the source of all my light. I loved reading good and intelligent books for days, watching cult movies and the reality is that … -OH GOD ALMIGHTY- it dawned on me again another epiphany and I was shocked with realizing that all those Science fiction books and movies based on a different reality usually set on the future were reality. We are ZOMBIES completely brainwashed to follow the fashion, work to spend our money in Shit We do not need and not question anything. It must be difficult to maintain order of wild free thinking beasts like us mortal defective Human beings. So the plan for the order is We all look the same, weight the same, better if We do it on a sub nutrition kind of way for We are destroying trees and you know? Ecosystem and all that so the resources once abundant were now not enough. We don’t read  good books anymore, they are available for purchase but only very few still read them, people like to take those distasteful tablets that lack the beauty and comforting company a book gives because of course the tablets a smaller and easy to carry around but I thought the good thing was to spend time inside that amazing world that is a book. There is magic in the pages of a well worn book and without it the word book doesn’t exist anymore. So WeImage don’t read books not because they are not available anymore but because our life style became as fast as the speed of our broadband connection- Who needs to study these days or call an specialist when you can do it all by yourself and learn it at two in the morning if desired so?  With one advantage, saving money.  We are addicted, junkies of technology and virtual realities, I don’t need to be nice to any person, I have my friends from facebook  that I don’t see for how long? 15 or 25 years and then I finally wake up and scold myself again for I AM LATE AGAIN- need to go to my “semi- alive” reality.

No such thing as a freebie!!

No such thing as a freebie!!

I’ve been busy, my new addiction in the last month is Freebie websites because I got converted by all the savvy moms that I encountered on my last compulsion for pinterest. So my thought was that if I got loads of followers on pinterest and wrote a blog about my amazing organization skills I will be famous and build a website and sell all the things I bought when I decided that selling on e bay was a great idea ( subject for another post I suppose). I will then be a millionaire like Martha Stewart but without the tax evasion slip mind you. I’ve got to say that I followed all the great ideas of the blogs I encountered surfing on pinterest and to my surprise I ended up spending at least 50 hours of my life answering surveys and for that I got an immense quantity of spams and phone calls about PPI and so on plus loads of free samples and junk mail (Free samples good) but at some point you are doing something important that requires attention and your phone rings and rings and it’s all about swags and unwanted services. I even got to the point of creating a whole new persona on facebook just to get free gifts and samples. I’ve got to be brutally honest here and tell you that I have a dressing room packet with clothes, shoes and beauty products, diy, crafting, etc… So I don’t really need more but trying to get free stuff can be like a game and I am very competitive so I played the game. My husband was freaked out when I told him about the new persona on facebook because let’s face it: IT IS CREEPY!!!!
I know it’s insane when I’m doing it but what is the fun in life if you don’t try it when you feel like trying it? What is the fun in pretending to be so grown up all the time? Where is the rabbit hole ? Why do I do such things? I believe that I need to see things through different perspectives and dive in the cold water to wake my senses. We all want to experience things our selves and even if someone tells you about how such a bad idea it is We do it anyway because it might be a good idea for me and bad for others. If I do not do it, I might be missing out, right?
Have a happy easter!

Blade Runner and the power of the phoenix

My secret beautee

 When I was small my daddy used to take me to the cinema, he was quite blind and had to wear contacts to see anything so when in the movies we used to get the front row and at the end of the movie my daddy used to get on his feet and clap his hands. He grew up in Buenos Aires where it’s a costume to clap at the end of a movie or a long haul flight. I remember being really small and going to see Blade Runner, his favourite movie at the time. And by the end of the movie he said to me that it did not matter what was happening in my life, to go to the movies when I needed to switch of. My father used to set the scenes and use all around him as puppets to his own entertainment, not in a…
