Colours of life

In life, everything has a beginning and an end. So have the dreams. These temporary events that give colour to our lifes are very beautiful, and we long them when they ended. But, we must go on, and carry the pain. This pain will become experience if we still can continue to walk. The same experience that make us more rational, and make us grow old. And, we still hope that one day a new color will be painted in our hearts.

Carta ao músicos portugueses

Esta mensagem é muito importante para mim, porque é um assunto que me toca pessoalmente. Eu admiro todos os músicos portugueses, e idolatro os músicos consagrados.

Eu tenho que confessar que adoraria ter sido um músico, e tentei várias vezes, mas nunca aconteceu. Foi o meu sonho desde os 6 anos de idade em ter sido pianista, e durante adolescente adoraria ter entrado numa banda de rock. Mas, várias variáveis nunca me levaram a essa vida. Hoje em dia, eu não me arrependo porque encontrei um outro sonho. Não descarto de um dia ter a oportunidade de fazer uma contribuição musical, mas agora estou focado noutra vida. Também desejo que um dia o meu pai consiga ter um reconhecimento pelo seu reportório.

É por ter uma pequena noção de quanto é difícil a vida de artista e de músico que admiro os artistas portugueses. Aos artistas consagrados, independentemente da música que fazem, só tenho que dar os parabéns do fundo do meu coração.

Desejo a melhor da felicidade para os artistas. Quem sabe um dia chego lá.

Ouvi dizer - Ornatos Violeta

"A cidade está deserta,
E alguém escreveu o teu nome em toda a parte:
Nas casas, nos carros, nas pontes, nas ruas.
Em todo o lado essa palavra
Repetida ao expoente da loucura!
Ora amarga! ora doce!
Pra nos lembrar que o amor é uma doença,
Quando nele julgamos ver a nossa cura!"

Triangle of wisdom

I am going to overcome the amazing logic that took me a while to accept.

There lots of programmers that are musician. This relationship between computer programming and music might sound strange but it has a reason. The love for the abstract concept might have a big importance in connecting different subjects. Also, we can add the mathematics to programming, for the same reason.

Connecting these three fields form a notorious triangle, that I love.

If your religion is worth killing for, please start by yourself

This is for those people or goverments who try to evangelize others. The word 'religion' refers to your poisoned and twisted belief (God, Ala, oil, money, etc). Unfortunately, the world is full of imposed false morality.

"Why I stopped watching porn"

This presentation shows the detriments of watching porn. We can see that pornographic films are something that affect social behaviour and the way we confront relationships. This is an insightful presentation that leads that, at long term, porn films can invade us with unreal and insensitive feelings. Basically, we can look like a construction worker that simply consider arousing raping, with dubious consent, women.

Critic to western civilization

After seeing the film 'Awakening' starring Robin Williams and Robert de Niro (and other actors), I have found out that winning and losing are just relative terms that need to be contextualized with a bigger picture. A person can win by losing, eg, a break-up from a girlfriend can lead to new challenges and a new destination. Life is full of moments that must enrich ourselves during the wins or loses, or even estagnation. Life is full of several wonderful worlds. There are not just one right world. Only the people with poor spirit can think this. Can you understand this government of USA?

Life is composed by diverse worlds with different logics, thoughts, languages, colors, etc.... There are not more intelligent people, or countries than others. There are several people and countries. The only thing that must be common to all of them is that they walk towards happiness, not destruction, nor death, but happiness.

Life is a walk through nature and gardens that we do during our existence, and not a walk through cement and dust that we must inhale every morning while commuting. Life is green, not grey. Life is keep learning, and not destroying education. Life is coming back home everyday to the family, and not to shelters to mourn victims of war.

The western civilizations have a long history as other civilizations, but we insist in put an eraser over history. The 'veni, vidi, vici' roman times have ended long time ago.

The love, the respect, and the generosity that belongs to the human spirit must prevail. We need to awake and focus on what we really need as individual. The sum of happy altruist persons make humanity survive in the world.
