Last week i was in an interesting event. My father asked me to film the celebration of 45 years from graduation of his class. Also they were making a homage to two class mates. The supreme court’s president and vice president from São Paulo. It’s a rare thing to have the two most important positions in law occupied by two people from the same class. No need to say my father was in law. He worked in the field as a lawyer for ten years but after he got some money he changed his focus to business. It was a really interesting event to be attended. A lot of joy from old friends created the mood but for someone from outside that sphere there was something more enchanting to notice. As they were celebrating 45 years of graduation most there would have 70 years or more. As one of the classmates mentioned in his speech “they are in the autunm of their carriers”. So there they were in the end of their race looking at each other. Trying to learn what happened with the others or maybe avoiding it. One could notice some got rich and some didn’t. Some got powerful and other didn’t. Some looked really old and others didn’t. Some were not there anymore. Many died. But who got what they were looking for in their carriers? Who was there with a strong fire in the eyes with no worries about how did the other go and satisfied with the journey? I can say it was impossible to say. If the richer were happier. If the better looking had a better life. I looked at that group and imagined my self in their positions. It kind of scares me. What will i think of my life when i’ve already lived it?
Some say dreams are the mind interpretation of our current event. Others say it’s the reboot of the brain and it’s cleaning system. Other says it’s were we can see the future and the past. Orpheus was always a wonder subject in all cultures. We still don’t understand all the reasons involved in our dreams. Scientists can explain some neurological aspects and spiritualists try to guess but there’s no complete version of it. Nobody knows. I can tell from my own experience that i already had a dream of things to come. And things came. Maybe it was just a coincidence but i rarely remember my dreams and that one woke me up. Six months later i learned a really big healthy issue that is resolved right now but had no way to be mistaken by any other event. Still that was the only time it happened and that can’t prove anything. Maybe there’s a quantic explanation saying that the power of that dream could materialize the event afterwords. Who knows. Freud said dreams are the interpretations of our desires and fears. But some dreams are so confusing. It’s kinda hard to accept this theory. Maybe it’s a channel to the divine. Maybe there’s something else out there and the way we communicate with it is in our dreams. All we know is that Mr. Sandman’s realms are still a mystery too good to be solved.
Sometimes i wonder why most musics i have in my ipod are sung by women . I mean at least three quarters. I think the reason for this is the same as the one that makes me paint and photograph. My need to consume art in every form and to give it back with all forms of expression. There is a fascination for women in it’s spiritual essence. You can say it’s something about my mother. Maybe it is but we can discuss a little bit further. As for Us men i can say we are not very hot these days. Or ever. Women always used their power. Men are not smart enough to do that. We can start by the basics. Little girls learn they have to preserve their treasures for princes. Little boys learn that is their obligation to be always ready to please. Men don’t have “headaches” but women do. They decide when, where and how. They invented the first product display of the modern era. The high heels. They can have babies. Men can’t. But for some reason men dominated most of the important positions in this world since the beginning and i think that’s not just because man can be stronger. There was i time when being stronger would make the difference. But not today. Today the most important jobs and positions are occupied by the skills of the brain and less by the physical ones. I think the only reason men are not overwhelmed by women is because we are conceived and bred by women and motherhood is stronger than any other relation between humans. There is a clue. It’s part of the reason for my fascination in what makes women the way they are. The word unconditional has its roots on the feminine. Love has it’s roots on the feminine and women feeds love much more than men. They design passion. They welcome us into their bodies and even their orgasms are more intelligent than ours. I gotta say thanks god they’re our mother!!!
