1917

Rua Líbero Badaró, 67, no 3º andar, sala 2: endereço onde Oswald de Andrade (1890-1954) manteve, entre 1917 e 1918, no Centro de São Paulo sua Garçonière (quase 100 anos depois de alterações, o número atual é 452). Com algumas telas de Di Cavalcanti e Anita Malfatti nas paredes, o espaço era ponto de encontro entre seus amigos e sua amante, Maria de Lourdes Pontes, uma estudante de 16 anos, do Colégio Caetano de Campos, chamada por Oswald de Miss Cyclone. O fato de ir sozinha à Garçonière regularmente, sendo uma adolescente, fascinava os que mais frequentavam aquela Garçonière: Mário de Andrade, Guilherme de Almeida, Ribeiro Couto, Di Cavalcanti, Monteiro Lobato, Menotti del Picchia, entre outros. No “covil da rua Líbero” (como…

as seasons change Fawn Lily

season’s change stirs thoughts
mind wanders with falling leaf
new buds come with time

The two word prompts for RonovanWrites Weekly Haiku Prompt Challenge #110 are change and mind. Typically, as I wrote this I got lost halfway through. As I was ready to post (photo selected, the whole nine yards), I realized my haiku was missing one of the key words, so I started over. Now I wonder if the final haiku is actually about my writing process.  The original (one word short) is below.

 dry leaf falls to ground
new bud nourished by past life
change measured by time

Interview with David Snape Online Radio for The Path of the Child

The Page Turner

This is all a new concept for me. To be allowed to speak about a book that I worked on so hard and labored to bring it to a satisfactory conclusion, amazing to say the least.  David Snape is a Blogger and hosts a radio show on Mixcloud. I was fortunate enough to be interviewed by him. He asks very complex and in-depth questions.  I hope I do not sound too nervous in the interview. I am basically a shy and socially awkward. This was my attempt to be a better author by promoting my book. David has music and interviews along with interesting blog posts and little-known news. His show runs about two hours. Some great music is included as well as an interview with a young man with Autism that blogs and writes weekly stories.

My interview starts at about 1:25 into the show if you have an…

o cigano

0 ahcravo_DSC_7489 bw
onde antes areia moliço
peixe luz alimento
nada mais que um charco
rodeado de lama

lama na ria e um cemitério
de bateiras
à espera da despedida
dos donos

a lama invade tudo

chapinha-se na lama
e dá-se-lhe bandeira doirada
na ilusão de pescar incautos

reconheço o fim do tempo
na maré vazia
a que nem os homens resistem

partem os que podem
ficam os que já não
ou porque também

o cigano desmonta a tenda
lava os pés e as mãos
na pouca água que resta
purifica-se

o cigano não muda a terra
muda de terra
é esse o seu destino

sonhar sonhar sonhar
nada é em vão
