“On earth there is sadness inside of the beautiful things.”
Sophia de Mello Breyner Andersen
Catagramma – is an obsolete genus of Neotropical butterflies; the name continues to be used e.g. among butterfly collectors as a form taxon. “Catagramma” species are popularly known as “88s”, in reference to a pattern on the hindwing undersides of many that looks like the number 88.

Alone in my sanctuary, I’ve felt contentment while I was doing my first floral tiny wreath – a present from the heart to dear Vibeke.
I am completely surrendered, dazzled and faltered with this utterly beautiful victorianish packaging from my cherished soul Vibeke.
“Who hasn’t felt this melancholy, this tiny thing whose origin is unknown to me.”
Poem by Jorge Barbosa, Momento.
Versão Original em português:
Quem aqui não sentiu
que vem não sei de onde.
Um pouco talvez
das horas solitárias
passando sobre a ilha
ou da música
do mar defronte
uma canção rumorosa
musicada com os ecos do mundo.
Poema Momento de Jorge Barbosa.

Early this morning, searching for quietness amidst the things I treasure.
I’ve still a lot of mail to catch up. Be patient my friends.
I’m that kind of a friend who will forget your birthday, but I always be there when you need it, so what is more important: birthday or always be there?
A letter to my childhood’s friend Vânia, I meet her when I was 10 years old, twenty years have passed and we are here in this life perpetuating our friendship.
I made for her a pastel velvet pink chocker and a postcard as birthday gift. I hope she enjoys it.
