Dear Alex, and dear all,
How are you? I hope you are fine.
Oh Alex, it´s lovely the way you spend your free time, I´d like to be to South Bank. Just like you, I love coffee and books ( and of course, films is among them), actually I think they make a perfect partnership, though I´ve never read a book sit at a café beside a river. I close my eyes now, and I´m trying to image the sensation. Hmmm... Amazing. You are a lucky man.
You mentioned my poetic mood in your blog, in fact, I felt like this because yesterday I read an article about a new temporary exhibition released at Língua Portuguesa Museum ( Museu da Língua Portuguesa) inspired by Clarice Lispector works. I don´t know if you remember that I mentioned in one of my previous blogs that I adore her, she´s my favourite Brazilian writer, therefore my poetic mood was the reflex of my passion for her literature. So, you can image how happy I was when I read this news. And then, guess where I´m going to go in this weekend? I´m going to go to the Língua Portuguesa Museum!
The museum is settled at Luz Train/Subway Station, and once more I´m lucky for living in Mogi, because as you know in 25 minutes, I get there. Besides the Clarice Lispector exhibition, the multimidia museum tells the history of Portuguese origins, and how some languages, including English, influenced the origin of some Portuguese words. And at the top of the museum there is a place called "The Alley of the Words" ( Beco das Palavras), which has an incredible multimidia apresentation with some authors reading their texts while the words are projected on the floor. Moreover at the top of Língua Portuguesa Museum you have a dazzling view of Pinacoteca, which is in the other side of the street. So Adriana, if you intend to come to São Paolo on holiday, take two days: one just to visit the Pinacoteca, and another one to visit the Luz Station and the Língua Portuguesa Museum, you will love it! I promisse you. Oh... and on Saturdays it´s opens for free too, it´s really good, isn´t it?
And you? What are you going to do in this weekend?
Ah! I have a nasty task for doing, so... let´s go!
' The green colour of the grass becomes more vivid when "it" starts to rain.'
' Sometimes "it" is really good to find yourself alone.'
I hope that it´s correct.
A little note to Alinor from Brazil: I enjoyed a lot Batismo de Sangue ( Blood Baptism), Caio Blat is great! However I don´t read the book yet, my sister is reading it, and when she finishes to read the book, she´ll borrow me.
Thanks Paul for answering my question.
All the best, have a wonderful weekend,
