I wonder: we walk, laugh, grow, and one day we get older! We walk in circles, we walk in inverse processes: today we are younger than tomorrow. We live a lifetime to find out that the contradictions and opposites of this life are too the foundations. Right now, I am inside of an old house: the glass windows are broken and outside I see a garden, a garden that challenges the humanity! And everything I do is perhaps too.
“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.

The Bonds Behind the Flowers with Flâneur/ O Fascínio das Flores com a Flâneur
Adorei este dia, obrigada a todos por terem partilhado o vosso precioso Sábado comigo e a Flâneur.
Moments spent in Flaneur exploring the meaning of the flowers with lovely ones. A very heart warming day. Thank you all.
Today, I will be exploring with Flaneur the meaning of flowers.
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.
Letter to Vibeke
Do you know that exquisite sensation when you meet someone for the first time, but, deep inside of you, something tells you that in another life and place you already meet her/him? These persons are our kindred souls, old souls that wander in this life and are meant to meet again and live what was left unfinished… So please, be aware that life has an end, so don’t forget to treasure the ones you love the most and show everyday how much you care for them. You won’t regret it, believe me!
In this photo is a letter to the special soul Vibeke and an old tray that I have found broken near to my house, outside of a street litter. I brought it home and fix it, and now it looks precious.
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.
