an article/opinion from 2000 about Darrell Young Elk,
who was murdered in March 2000 by the state of CA,
with his Spiritual Rights denied !!! Darrell was American Indian !!!
things didn’t change a lot till today, must tell ....

Native Americans and the Death Penalty

my note »» i really doubt the number of American Indians cited here is correct.
from a research i made in 2002 many are “listed” as white in the official lists and that made me wonder about the violation of Spiritual Rights inside the Iron Houses ....
USA lists people by “races” and i was truly chocked to see Latinos' one too when i have seen for the first time The American Bureau of Justice.
i didn’t know about their existence, it reminds Hitler, isn’t it ???

what is race anyway if our blood has the same colour ???

Kill Death Penalty NOW and .... it's all !!!!!

homage to magic




a simple homage to Arthur Rackham, one of the best illustrators i have ever known.

i was and am always in awe by illustrations for children.
my childhood was not really happy and one of my escapes was reading and dreaming of better and magical worlds.

illustrations for the books:
on top - Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens (J. M. Barrie)

below - Undine (La Motte-Fouqué)

Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away; for now the winter is past, the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth; the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land. The fig tree puts forth its figs, and the vines are in blossom; they give forth fragrance.
Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.

for you, grandpa !!!


grandpa’s pansies

your pansies, remember ???

Avózinhos

avô Hanns
grandpa Hanns, father’s dad (Bavaria, 1890 - 1950)

Grandpa Hanns had the most beautiful blue eyes with all feelings

of the sea and was an extraordinary man, like Mom always said.
he had a magical pact with nature, everything he touched grew up smiling in his hands and he played violin too ....

from him, i kept this fascination by nature, loving animals, collecting flowers …. reading poems writing tender messages and be a romantic dreamer, even if i am a walking disaster for business.

avó Maria Emília
grandma Maria Emília, father’s mom (1891 - 1951)

Grandma Emília was a very delicate and noble woman,

she played piano and with grandpa Hanns they played wonderful duets.
she had big talks with the spirits and loved to take her 5 o'clock tea

in beautiful porcelain cups with little pink roses.

from her i kept my belief everyone gone lives in a parallel world to ours.

i never knew them, they are gone before i was born.
and, till today, my soul aches for meeting you, Grandpa.
Ich liebe Dich so sehr, Opa !!!!


I love you, Avós !!!
