Alguém Muito Especial

Por que dizer quando é amor?
Sem amor a vida é triste
Silenciar se é só doar
um abraço, um beijo, o que for
Por que rasgar tudo em pedaços?
quanto mais diz, menos importa?
Por que amar sem ser amado?
Se com amor não há derrota
Acho que sofre mais quem ama
quando termina em solidão
acho que chora mais quem clama
se falta amor no coração
Então é assim que deve ser
se não se quer explicação?
então é assim que irei viver
enquanto vivem em distração?
Sem amor a vida é triste
e muita coisa é ilusão
sem amor nada resiste
e um mundo acaba em solidão
Por que dizer quando é amor?
Sem amor a vida é triste
Silenciar se é doar
um abraço, um beijo, o que for
Se já foi hora de mudar
seguir em outra direção
dar um basta nesta vida
de maldade e confusão
De amor não morre
e não se mata
e não se mata um coração
com amor nada é perdido
Se somos jovens pra entender
mas para o amor não há idade
e há vida em mim e em você

João Neto


Just a short tale
By John Ny

A long time ago, one of my grandmothers, tried to make sure that joining the Brazilian military service would be an unnecessary feat in my case, as she could probably use her influence over that matter. A quite clear sign of care and preoccupation over a possible and bad outcome, in my opinion. However, after a long period of reflection over what my choice would be, I really decided on enlisting against her wishes, which, unexpectedly, resulted in an unlikely outcome as she proved to be one of my greatest supporters at the time. Well, I really miss my grandmother and not for the fact that she was white in spite of the fact that I am black. Nevertheless, that is not the real point here. Because what had already been very clear to all participants in that process from the start, and including her main role in the equation, was the fact that dodging draft would never make of any citizen a useful one for society. We all shared the same opinion about the role …


Phrasing and its difficulty
Is not it all about it?
Now it´s clearer to see
Not for lack of a better description
Flats, sharp notes and many different keys
Outsides, not oddness, a colorful sonority
Something about the mastering of some pure technique
Strings vibration, their gauge and sound characteristics
Bending moves, sliding tricks
Unusual bars and their specific number of beats
Neither brain failure nor psychological issues
Useful details about what the word overcome means
Neither craziness nor lack of any spirituality
Scale switch from one key to another
Amazing chords, triads, major and minor scales
Greek modes, not madness as I first suspected
Staccato octaves, sixteen triplets
Vibrato... .... ....
And now I finally understand it
Something beyond and also about creativity
It is time I learnt about music

A Day To Remember

A day to remember? From many others likewise interesting, a day when talking to a group of Brazilians, Norwegians, Canadians, Americans, Mexican, German, French, British and Irish people, consisting of different genders, some time ago, we all found out and agreed about commom characterstics and tastes.

The Most Comfortable Of All Places

The most comfortable of all places? Any comfortable site in which a good position is granted to the skilled, according to his or her competences, the reading of a good article is allowed, including time for some composition, essay and production of a relevant issue. A place where the listening of good songs, the watching of a great deal of good movies and what else the world has to offer are not denied. A place in which the outcome of such grant would be none other than the generation of relevant stuff.

Something to ponder

Something to ponder. by John Ny

It´s true. Some say that there is a great difference between knowledge and wisdom. Nevertheless, there may be a close relation between wisdom and intelligence and that´s the reason why wise human beings may be both cause and effect of what could have been obtained and put into practice on a daily basis, repetitively as usual procedure through both formal and informal or also direct and indirect kinds of interaction among peers for centuries. That is why positive kinds of interaction are very important and may be preferred by those with a care in the world. These kinds of interactions are in fact the only ones resulting in the most impressive and desired achievements of humankind, regarding many existing activities and projects ever developed by human beings from many existing fields of expertise institutionalized by humankind. Ranging from engineering, to sports, to entertainment, to medicine, to art, to economics, to science, to technological advances, s…


HumorA big mystery: the tremendous benefits of laughter.Humor, the tendency of particular cognitive experiences to provoke laughter and provide amusement, affects how we perceive and 
respond to life. It enhances the quality of life and may relieve the body from so many health problems. In fact, humans are the only creatures on earth that are endowed with the ability to laugh. The difference between humor and laughter is that humor is a perceptual process while laughter is a behavioral response. People of all ages and cultures respond to humor. The majority of people are able to experience humor, i.e., to be amused, to laugh or smile at something funny, and thus they are considered to have a sense of humor. The hypothetical person lacking a sense of humor would likely find the behavior induced by humor to be inexplicable, strange, or even irrational. Though ultimately decided by personal taste, the extent to which a person will find something humorous depends upon a host of variables, i…

International Workers' Day

International Workers' Day The struggle to have eight hours for work, eight hours for recreation, and eight hours for rest was the origin of International Workers' Day, which is also referred to as May Day or Labor Day. The celebration commemorates the Haymarket Massacre in Chicago in 1886, when Chicago police shoot workers who were striking to establish the eight hour day. Many workers died in the event. Historically, the first congress of the Second International, which was an organization of socialist and labor parties formed in Paris on July 14, 1889, called for international demonstrations on the 1890 anniversary of the Chicago protests. In 1891, the Second International recognized May Day as an annual event.

Unions of all countries were urged to go on strike on May 1, whereve…
