About Me

"Life is a play that does not allow testing. So, sing, cry, dance, laugh and live intensely, before the curtain closes and the piece ends with no applause"

Charlie Chaplin

Life is what happens when you are busy making plans"
John Lennon

"This will be my art: To feel alive" I enjoyed the idea of beeing a life artist...making life a masterpiece

In Brasil I am a highschool sociology teacher and I have a radio show of latin music. I really try to fullfill the idea of making life a piece of art. Making ourselfs life artists. And the most thing i enjoy in life is travelling. Another passions are music and the search of knowledge and wisdow. Ive been travelinf for the last 9 months ( since september 2016). So if i ask you couch , be sure that i dont care about comfort....any place is really cool and comfortable for me. I prefer couchsurfing than hostels not only to save money and travel more....but because i really have this necessity of learning while traveling....i like to absorb the daily routine of the places i travel...see how local people live life , think life , signifies life....

PHILOSOPHY

The question is not to know if there's life after death , but if there's life before death Groucho Marx - comedian

"What is happiness to you?" quote from Vanilla Sky movie

“A man needs a little madness, or else... he never dares cut the rope and be free.”

― Nikos Kazantzakis

There is no great genius without some touch of madness." - Aristotle
