Family Carnival

I've always loved carnival. When I lived in the interior of São Paulo, I used to dance at clubs and I was finished. As an adult, I paraded in the Sambadrome in Rio de Janeiro twice and I also loved it. But that's all until you get to know Salvador's carnival. It was love at…

Mother competition

I had normal birth, celebrate some. I have nursed years, others vibrate. My son does not do tantrums, he does not use a pacifier or a bottle. Mine took off the diaper before walking. He learned to read by himself … Yes, the competition between the mothers has no limit. And worse, it has nothing…

Parkland tragedy: how to explain?

How can you explain to your children the tragedy that happened at the school in Parkland? How to tell them that, one fine day, a former student entered school with an AR-15 machine gun?

Xuxa was old. Not you?

People have to accept that I'm not younger. In short: people have to touch themselves from what … I got old! This simple statement – and strong – could be mine, but it is not. It's from a woman named Maria da Graça Xuxa Meneghel. Or just Xuxa. A presenter, actress, pop pop singer, businesswoman,…

"We do not use that anymore," they decided. Part of me celebrated. Fantasies are expensive, they gather dust and take their place…

Neymar: in one minute life changes

He is the great name of world football. It was in him that everyone bet on the return match between Real Madrid and PSG, valid for the last 16 of the Champions League. It is on his shoulders that every Brazilian's dream is to say in June: "it's hexa!". But Neymar is flesh and blood….

Oscar 2018 and the feminist movement

I watched a few minutes of the 2018 Oscar on TV. I had no choice in the dispute. I watched a few of the nominees. Even so, I loved reading about everything that happened on the most important night of world cinema. I loved to see the proportion that the feminist movement Time's Up (which…

Dog is a member of the family

In my house dog is more than a bug. It's part of the family. And son. Is brother. It's almost people! We are all in love with ours: a 15-year-old Maltese named Maui and a 10-year-old Labrador named Záira. If you have or know someone who has that dog breed or watched the movie "Marley…
