BOOK
“The Way of Intelligence” by J. Krishnamurti. It reminded me when I read Plato. It requires lots of attention and patience. I was watching the movie “Hurricane” and Denzel Washington’s character was reading this one.
“(…) My relation to you is based on the thought which I have about you. The relationship is not with you, but with the image that I have.”
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jiddu_Krishnamurti

Oi Katia, So many great bits to read about and see on your blog. I always enjoy! I'm looking forward to the new Sambaguru CD, I heard some of the tracks at "my space" - great, musical, groovy!
Your book recommendations are always interesting too and the quote you chose for Krishnamurti is perfect. He has many great books and writings worth visiting.
Obrigado for sharing your beautiful and interesting life and growth!
Beijo,
Jack

EU SOU........................................ said...

Oi! Voltei pra dizer o quanto admiro o seu trabalho! Juro que se eu morasse mais perto da California iria ai olhar bem de pertinho tudo o que vc faz! Eu adoro dancar, adoro nossas musicas, nossa ginga e tbm tenho um coracao bem brasileiro! Hoje estou com as pernas e bracos amarrados...sem dancar, sem gingar, sem nenhum espirito brasileiro perto de mim! Moro em Ohio, cidade pequena, onde algumas pessoas nunca ouviram falar do nosso Brasil! Que tristeza, ne'? Mas eu vou vivendo e me alegrando ao ver pessoas assim como voce, nem que seja so' por foto e espirito! Um beijao! Namaste!
