About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Learn other ways of living life and experience new sensations and situations!

ABOUT ME

I am a open-minded person and like any good Brazilian, I don´t miss the opportunity to give a good laugh.
Almost everything in this life interests me:
I love art, poetry, music, dance (especially flamenco and contemporary!), go out, spend days in a beach, meet people from different cultures and experience new sensations and situations!

Finally, I am a psychologist and work with public health in Brazil .I work hard to make the difference in people's lives. So I think this is my best feature: the desire to change the world.

PHILOSOPHY

Defender la alegría como una trinchera
defenderla del escándalo y la rutina
de la miseria y los miserables
de las ausencias transitorias
y las definitivas

defender la alegría como un principio
defenderla del pasmo y las pesadillas
de los neutrales y de los neutrones
de las dulces infamias
y los graves diagnósticos

defender la alegría como una bandera
defenderla del rayo y la melancolía
de los ingenuos y de los canallas
de la retórica y los paros cardiacos
de las endemias y las academias

defender la alegría como un destino
defenderla del fuego y de los bomberos
de los suicidas y los homicidas
de las vacaciones y del agobio
de la obligación de estar alegres

defender la alegría como una certeza
defenderla del óxido y la roña
de la famosa pátina del tiempo
del relente y del oportunismo
de los proxenetas de la risa

defender la alegría como un derecho
defenderla de dios y del invierno
de las mayúsculas y de la muerte
de los apellidos y las lástimas
del azar
y también de la alegría

Mario Benedetti
