Merry Christmas!!! / Feliz Natal

Yes, I completely disappeared for a while… so many things have happened these days… my city was facing a real war… I was worried and I had nothing to say. What could I say if my blog talks about good points of my city, and at that time there was nothing to say? I was sad, depressed, with no desire to think or write. But fortunately, the scenario started changing, the Christmas atmosphere is everywhere, a new era arrived for my city, after almost 30 years of total submission (and complicity, in many cases) of ours politicians to this absurd status quo. So, it’s not late to celebrate life, freedom, happiness, justice and hope! Merry Christmas and a New Year full of enchantment and peace for all of us!!!

É, eu sumi completamente por um bom tempo...tantas coisas aconteceram estes dias... a minha cidade viveu uma verdadeira guerra... além de preocupada, eu não tinha nada a dizer. E o quê eu poderia dizer se o meu blog fala de coisas positivas do Rio e naquele momento não havia nada de bom a ser dito? Eu estava triste e deprimida, sem vontade de pensar, muito menos de escrever. Mas, felizmente, o cenário começou a mudar , o clima do Natal está em todo o lugar, uma nova era chegou para a cidade, depois de quase 30 anos de total submissão (e cumplicidade, muitas vezes) dos nossos políticos com este absurdo e inadimissível status quo. Assim, nunca é tarde para celebrar a vida, a liberdade, a alegria, a justiça e a esperança! Feliz Natal e um Ano Novo cheio de encantamento e paz para todos nós!!!

My dear friend and guru Marty!

Thanks for your concern and kind words (as always)!

Yes, better days are coming! As you said, celebration and joy (the “life’s honey”, as we say here) are back!

Yes, today and tomorrow once more I’m going to be with my relatives and friends to thank the marvelous adventure of having each other and being alive and healthy, that’s what really matters in this life.

I also would like to thank you for all your nice and so necessary aphorisms that have enchanted and helped me during this year, like drops of joy into this so crazy life that we have nowadays!

Merry Christmas and Happy 2011 for you and your family!!!
