I no longer have patience for certain things, not because I’ve become arrogant, but simply because I reached a point in my life where I do not want to waste more time with what displeases me or hurts me. I have no patience for cynicism, excessive criticism and demands of any nature. I lost the will to please those who do not like me, to love those who do not love me and to smile at those who do not want to smile at me. I no longer spend a single minute on those who lie or want to manipulate. I decided not to coexist anymore with pretense, hypocrisy, dishonesty and cheap praise. I do not tolerate selective erudition nor academic arrogance. I do not adjust either to popular gossiping. I hate conflict and comparisons. I believe in a world of opposites and that’s why I avoid people with rigid and inflexible personalities. In friendship I dislike the lack of loyalty and betrayal. I do not get along with those who do not know how to give a compliment or a word of encouragement. Exaggerations bore me and I have difficulty accepting those who do not like animals. And on top of everything I have no patience for anyone who does not deserve my patience.

Be alone.


"Be alone. Eat alone, take yourself on dates, sleep alone. In the midst of this you will learn about yourself. You will grow, you will figure out what inspires you, you will curate your own dreams, your own beliefs, your own stunning clarity, and when you do meet the person who makes your cells dance, you will be sure of it, because you are sure of yourself. Wait for it. Please, I urge you to wait for it, to fight for it, to make an effort for it if you have already found it, because it is the most beautiful thing your heart will experience."

at Jacobs

In order to feed and organize my Tumblr page, which btw has been inspiring me like crazy, I was delightfully forced to go through my archives and look up for tons of new-old.good photos (again!). In this process, I have found material enough to write a handful of posts more! This to follow. 
I looked back when I travelled to Cremona, Italy, to get introduced to Jacob, a fellow friend, violin-maker and his office/room with which I felt in love at that time - see more here. I still love those photos and today I decided to share a few more which were ignored back then...

Wynwood!

Got to spend my one and only day in Miami strolling around downtown, getting lost in the streets - my usual and most pleasurable way to get to know a place - and the other half day in Wynwood - Miami Art District! You know, that's my kind of space and that was a rad decision!...

Costa Nova

How can one not feel lucky by living close to a place like this?!
I've shared my love about this village here or here, Costa Nova that is - the cutest, most beautiful coastal village! These pics were actually taken by my friend who came to visit me during summer and once again I feel like sharing a few more shots of this place I live in... (And because I've arrived to that time of the year when all I can think about it's Summer time, tanned skin, salty hair and light clothes!)

Sobre a sensualidade...

... é nisto que eu acredito.

É mais sensual uma mulher vestida do que uma mulher despida. A sensualidade é o intervalo entre a luva e o começo da manga.
 
António Lobo Antunes

A sensualidade ou falta dela está muito acima do decote.

Lorina Ventura

A vulgaridade começa quando a imaginação sucumbe ao explicíto.
