reality is just a construction of your mind.
The Summer Football Survival Guide
Last night was by far the most important night of the manifestations. The protests took hold of over 100 Brasilian cities simultaneously There are counts of 2 million participants, chanting on the streets. That’s 10% of the nation’s population.Over one week of this movement and not one death related to the protest. Peacefully we will create our reality.Proud day.

Its been a while since I have participated in anything on Lush. Just wanted to let you all in on some news, maybe provide a deeper perspective from the ground.I´m not sure how extensive foreign coverage has been over the happenings in my country over the last few days. Mostly peaceful, the Brasilian people have become restless and have taken their frustration to the streets.Billions have been spent on the massive stadiums that will be used for the World Cup next year and probably left to rot afterwards. We call them “white elephants”. South Africa is full of them, so is china. (Legacies of the 2010 World Cup and 2008 Olympics).The problem here is not the concept or design of these structure, but the fact that my country’s health system is inexistent and our education system is forgotten. If this public capital (our taxes) was invested back into the public system we could heal most of our heartaches.

The people are fed up with the public system and are standing up against it. Peacefully!The last 8 days of protests and marches mark the beginning of a new chapter in our story. When Brasil stops being the country of the future and begins shaping its present.The video below gives you some basic info as to what is happening. http://www.youtube.com/embed/ZApBgNQgKPU
Thoughts are heavy, head is cloudy, gut is empty. Heart is weary. Distance is chipping away - slowly but steadily. I bear witness to the crumbling of yesterday´s love Like a dream unhurriedly fading with time. You visit me when silence is to loud to tolerate I sense your desires when darkness falls. I crave your bliss when dominated by love. An attempt to occupy...

From across the room I spy you comfortably leaning against the wall. Your curvy body is deliciously sculpted. With only one thing on my mind, I carefully weave through the crowd like a lion in the savanna. I find a place adjacent to you. Your wooden perfume softly brushes my senses. A symphony of memories and emotions. Slowly, I begin to lose control. Compelled, my hand...
